Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer Eric Benet looks forward to releasing his fourth album âLove & Lifeâ this fall. The new album and follow up to Benetâs 3rd studio album âHurricane,â is led by the recently released single âYouâre the Only One.â Benet, known widely for his Platinum selling album âA Day in the Lifeâ (1999) and Grammy nominated collaboration with Tamia on âSpend My Life With Youâ says âI wanted to make a record that was a good feeling R&B record, and some of the best R&B for me growing up had a dash of gospel, a couple dashes of jazz. You could feel the social consciousness and you could feel where the artist was in their life. Whatever challenges, victories, blessings that Iâm presently experiencing and the fruit of all that, are the songs that I write.â Benet co-wrote and produced eleven of the twelve tracks on the album with partners, Demonte Posey and George Nash Jr. Currently climbing the Urban AC charts, âYouâre the Only Oneâ features a piano laden backdrop met by the synthesized harmony of soul melody where Benet speaks of time being the determining factor on love meant to be. It is abundantly clear through Love & Life that Eric Benet feels good, and it is magnifies from the inside out. As his journey to now continues to reflect the abundance he experiences, Eric wants his music to represent sheer honesty. âI want people to be able to discover some of the truths that I have and to feel the passion for life written between the lines and to just to put it pure and simplyâto be moved by my music.â Currently on tour, Benet will make an appearance at the BET Awards next week and KR&B…105.7, the New R&Bâs Forever Thirty Birthday Weekend later this month. Eric Benetâs Love & Life hits stores September 9th, the single âYouâre the Only Oneâ is available through online retailers now. Click here to purchase on iTunes.
