Nice! I don’t get much R&B and to be honest I’ve always kinda liked that genre. There are some songs out there by Usher and Pharrell that I really dig. P. Bailey has one of those voices that R&B upcoming singers covet. It’s a smooth as butter when he needs it to be, but he’s able to put a rough edge to his vocals to really punch up a line in the song. This may be one of the first times I wish that I had chosen a different song. Since this is a mix, there are some elements that I bet aren’t in the original track and I would love to hear it a bit stripped down. These extra beats kinda throw me off a bit. That being said, his vocals are still well worth the price of admission.
I totally want to hear more of his work. With a voice like that I can’t imagine how any one could over look this gem of a singer. Despite my deep abiding love for all things metal, I can get down with the R&B stuff. Especially with the R&B/Pop blends. For example this particular track I would match with my Pharrell, Usher and JT songs. I also have some Maroon 5 on that list as well. Adam’s just so damn soulful when he sings. Sorry, I digress… Mr. Bailey has an amazing range and I would like to explore more of it.
