Smooth is the word. It’s good to see the R&B veteran return to form. I first heard “Sweeter”, when it started getting spins during the WBLS 107.5 FM late night rotation. As great as it was to see Brian McKnight show off his comical abilities last year with ‘Let Me Show You”, it’s great to hear, and see him return to the lyrics and sound that have assisted in carrying his career to this current point. He’s never been one to get too caught up in the current landscape of cheap thrills and gestures to push his music. He is one of the few artists who are able to bring their own personal brand of classic work and be able to consistently ingratiate it with each passing year of the R&B scene. The video is classy and it puts on display a few ways to enjoy some sensual times with a significant other. The simplicity projects what being smooth is all about, the complexity that is within simplicity. The focus is on the music and, setting the tone instead of jumping around and posturing. It has come right in time for Valentine’s Day which is approaching soon. “Sweeter”, will be on his new coming album coming out this year titled Words.
