Today (March 27) is Eric Belligner’s birthday, so the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter celebrates with a 3-track EP aptly titled “Birthday Gifts.”The short set features three new tracks from EB, a precursor to his heavily anticipated album, Cuffing Season, due later this year.
The songs follow Bellinger’s signature format of using interpolation by borrowing subtle nuances of familiar songs and flipping them. For instance, on “Living Single (Overrated),” EB flips the theme song of 90s sitcom “Living Single.” “I’m done living single…Ooo, in a side chick kinda world, I’m glad I got my girl,” he sings.
“So today is my birthday, but I wanted give some gifts to my fans!” explains Bellinger. “I got great feedback on Choose Up Season and am happy that fans are excited for more music, so here’s a preview! Cuffing Season is on the way!”
Producers AYO, Yung Ladd, D’Mile and Bangahs were compiled for this set.
