‘Sometimes I Cry’ But Eric Benét Always Makes Me Smile

We gave you a heads up earlier in the week that Eric Benét will be Lost In Time with a new album this fall. But if this sweltering summer couldn't get hot enough, here's the first single to warm you up a little more. Benét is in beautiful form on "Sometimes I Cry." He sings about a lost love, but his delivery is such that you might forget that this is supposed to be a sad song by the end. Starting off in his normal tenor, when he taps into his falsetto he takes this composition to higher heights. Eric sings the hell out of this bad boy. My goodness.

  4. Some of the best R&B I've heard in a long time.

  5. Real soul music is alive and well if you keep those eyes open...damn!

  6. Love it, love it. love it. I got a chance to see Eric at a small intimate theatre (City Theatre) here in Detroit about a year ago. I stayed after the show long enough to tell him that I loved HIS VOICE. This single is perfection, I've never heard him do a complete song in a full out falsetto. This proves he is a consummate singer and he's not just another pretty face!!! His range is killer, I want to hear him stretch out more on future albums. He is a down to earth performer who really connects with his audience!. This single is a little reminiscent of "you know who" and yet it is ALL ERIC and he can really finesse a lyric. Love it, love him. I missed his last performance in Detroit, but I don't intend to miss any more...what you hear on his tracks is exactlly what you get onstage, live and in person...and then some!

  7. I can't stop listening to this song. Eric betta SANG!

  8. I think this is one of the best songs he has ever done. I listen to it as many as 30 times a day. He's really feeling this song himself. This song is so soulful I want to cry for him.

  9. I love this song was at work in a patients room and heard this. It comes on 101.3 multiple times during my night shift as a nurse and I love this song. I am really feeling this. I
    will have to get this. This is a must.

  10. OMG Eric Benet is back!! I love this song!
