I was sitting in front of my computer, with my back to the TV, doing schoolwork while I heard the pretty ass falsetto of R&B crooner Maxwell on VH1 Soul. It was so good to hear his voice again. I though for a sec he was licking my ear. Oh LAWD!
Anyhow, it was a song I hadn’t heard before, so minimized my Lexus-Nexus online to google to see if Maxwell had a new record out–if this record were new, or much whispered about Black Summer’s Night. This album was ALLEGEDLY shelved by Sony music because of some homoerotic references in the lyrics of one or more of the songs. But I ain’t mad, are you, boys?
As it turns out, the video I was watching was NOT a new Maxwell (it was a video from The Best Man soundtrack), I just hadn’t heard the song before now. BUT, the Lawd works in mysterious ways, cuz when my google stopped, it showed that Maxwell IS IN FACT BACK! His team is gearing up for a promo campaign (including the now obligatory MySpace page) for Black Summer’s Night. BSM will, according to the myspace site, will be the first album in a trilogy!!!
Look for some trax on the site, and the whole thang to drop on V Day!!!
