After previewing the single earlier this month at Sol Village, R&B crooner Calvin Richardson issues the full-length track "We Gon' Love Tonite." Co-written by Eric Benet, the ballad continues to showcase Richardson's soulful delivery and hypnotic sound.
Earlier this year, Eric Benet announced the signing of the soul veteran to his Jordan House label. Between that time and the present, the two have been hard at work on Calvin's forthcoming album.
“For me, it's an amazing experience to be teaming up with Eric [Benet]. Ever since I've heard Eric's music I've been a fan,” Richardson told Singersroom. “This guy has an amazing voice and talent. His penmanship and albums are all amazing. Just listening to the records doesn't tell the story of how great a guy he is. But his voice is just incredible and I am not just saying that because he is here.”
Benet adds: “I remember where I was when I first heard dude [Calvin Richardson] sing. It was about 10 years ago and someone that was working at Hollywood records was letting me hear the new music and they let me hear Calvin's records. Calvin is one of those artists that as an R&B singer makes you want to step your game up because this dude is swinging. I remember how much his music and talent affected and influenced me.”
