R&B Singer Babyface Writes Tune About Marriage Split

R&B superstar Babyface has recalled the moment he had to tell his kids that he and their mother were separating in a touching new tune. The singer, real name Kenneth Edmonds, has dedicated “Not Going Nowhere” to the two children he fathered with his ex-wife Tracey Edmonds, who is now romancing actor-comedian Eddie Murphy. Babyface, who has always maintained the marriage split was amicable, reportedly told his sons Brandon and Dylan Michael that mom and dad’s separation was a painful experience. In the new song, Edmonds sings, “I’m still best of friends with your mom/Have no doubt that we’ll still make time to hang out/I promise I won’t let you down.” Babyface has recently signed a new deal with Island Records to release his new album, “Playlist,” consist of eight cover songs which includes Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” Dan Fogelberg’s “Longer,” Dave Loggin’s “Please Come To Boston”, Bread’s “Diary”, Jim Croce’s “Time In A Bottle,” Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” and James Taylor’s “Fire & Rain” and “Shower The People”. “Not Going Nowhere” and “The Soldier Song” are two original works in the album. It is scheduled to be released on September 18, 2007. It will be the first album on the newly re-launched Mercury Records Label.
