Hungry For More Eric Benét?

eric_benet_sexy_as_all_hell.jpgJust the other day I wondered to myself when the second single from Eric Benét's upcoming CD Love & Life was gonna drop. Don't get me wrong, I love "You're the Only One" like I love birthday cake, but I've been listening to that since April. It's a whole 'nother season! Well, the wait is over, and, Lawd, it was worth it. "The Hunger" is a sexy number that finds Eric singing about his woman's insatiable appetite--and he's not talking about at the dinner table either. A slow jam master, Benét increases the tempo a tad for this tasteful tale of hot sex on a platter. When a female voice whispers "Mmm, I was thinking maybe we could do it again" toward the start of the song, you can guarantee that there's about to be some grown folk's business going down. But the song is so much deeper than that, Eric sings about first kisses and conversations in addition to sweat dripping and bodies calling. Mercy.   

I must admit, I had a Holly Robinson-Peete moment the first 20 times I played this last night. Needless to say, "The Hunger" is officially my new favorite song. I'll have seconds, please. Eric Benét just don't know.

    Not sure about this one, nothing wrong with it just has no replay value in my book. Loved the last album Hurricane, when he teamed up with some of my fav producers David Foster and Walter Afanasieff, and one of my fav engineers Humberto Gatica. Hope he stays in the pop lane on the new one,
