Baby Face Releases New Single "We've Got Love"
There has been a deluge of comebacks this year—from Dr. Dre to Janet Jackson—that it’s almost unsurprising to hear new music from Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.
“I have been blessed to experience a lot of love in my life,” said Babyface in a press release. “It is the greatest gift in life and I feel blessed to share that universal message through my music.”
The song is a light-hearted, jazzy number. “We’ve got something that the world just can’t explain,” croons Babyface over cascading piano and vibrant horns.
The R&B icon is currently touring through October in the U.S. and South Africa.
Earlier this year, Babyface and Toni Braxton won a Grammy for best R&B album for the pair’s duet album, Love, Marriage & Divorce.
The 2014 Def Jam set, Babyface’s first new studio project in almost seven years, yielded the Adult R&B No. 1 hit “Hurt You.”
Babyface is currently on tour now through October in the U.S. and South Africa. Upcoming stops include the Antelope Valley Fair in Lancaster, Calif.
(8/21 with co-headliner Boyz II Men); Cape Town, South Africa (Sept. 1); Johannesburg, South Africa (Sept. 3-4) and the Arizona Jazz Festival in Phoenix (Oct. 23).
