This reminds me so much of I'd Rather Be with You by Bootsy Collins. I can't stop playing it, its such a strong track.

Didn't expect the live performance to be so good, his band have so much funk.

Yes. And he has a great voice. Even better than most R&B male singers

It definitely has that Grammy-friendly sound.

I wanted to see if he could pull this song off live, and found this performance. First off, slay a bit with the body and Lenny Kravitz-styled pants. But DEM vocals tho! :cry:

The band did a great job, too.

Easily one of the best soul records of the decade. Good to see this is still getting noticed after all these months.

He basically has SOTY and ROTY on lock for now. I don't think there is a bigger critically acclaimed track atm. ( Humble might be too rough)

Let's see what happens. As it stands, I think this is the favourite for ROTY, though I'm a bit disappointed it wasn't also nominated for SOTY. How the voters thought "Despacito" and "That's What I Like" were lyrically superior is beyond me.

Such a classic record, but credit needs to be given to Seals & Croft. Their song "Summer Breeze" paved the way for Redbone.
