They’re not called “Silk” for nothin’!
From their upcoming LP Quiet Storm, five-man R&B harmony group offer their first single “Love 4 U 2 Like Me,” another satiny, sleek gem they’re known for.
With harmonies and romance abound, the fellas sing to the heart of a woman; they’re not against taking it slow in hopes of formulating a deep connection. “We can take it slow, we ain’t gotta rush, that’s where dudes go wrong tryna do too much,” they sing on the second verse.
Featuring production by Wirlie Morris (who has produced hits for Charlie Wilson, Keith Sweat and Dru Hill) Quiet Storm will feature originals that deliver Silk's classic style but with an updated and refreshing sound palette. In 1992, their classic line-up of Gary "Big G" Glenn, Gary "Li'l G" Jenkins, Timothy "Timzo" Cameron, Jimmy Gates, Jr., and Jonathan "John John" Rasboro had solidified and Silk scored their first hit with "Happy Days," followed by their #1 R&B smash "Freak Me" in 1993. Silk was blessed with a decade-plus run of charts hits, including such staples as "Lose Control," "Girl U For Me," "I Can Go Deep," "Hooked On You" and "Meeting In My Bedroom," selling nearly 3 million albums in the process. In 2004 "Li'l G" Jenkins launched a solo career, appearing in Tyler Perry's play Madea's Family Reunion and the group continued as a quartet, releasing an album of covers, Always & Forever in 2006. In 2014, "Li'l G" rejoined the group and they began working on material for a new album.
Quiet Storm, their first album in a decade, will arrive on March 4, 2016.
