Hopefully David Banner’s Gatorade Ad Helps More Ears ‘Evolve’

I have long been complaining about modern R&B's male singers not being something I'm used to. As in men who sound like men. Gruff, sometimes guttural, church-raised voices whose secular side can sometimes coax women out of underthings covering nether regions.All I'm saying is that I prefer Teddy Pendergrass' voice over Omarion's any day even though I like them both. Truth be told, I love Teddy more. Even though some people complained that David Banner's "Evolve" now being featured in this Gatorade commercial sounded too much like an old Negro spiritual--what's wrong with that?--I love the fact that Kermit Quinn from Blackstreet is singing like a man. The type of man's voice that I described above. While you likely have seen the commercial, be sure to peep the full-version of this song after the bounce.

  1. that's hot!

  2. i like this. + i kinda do agree, i do miss the deep full r&b voices from guys like teddy pendergrass, jeffery osborne, + donny hathaway. so many watered-down whiny voices r out, even n hip hop...

  3. I so agree with you! I miss hearing a real man sing. Just last week I was listening to Teddy Pendergrass and saying they don't make men like that anymore lol.

  4. I'm feeling this! The sound, the message... errrrrrrrrthang! Great singing. His voice reminds me of David Ruffin.

  5. Oh-Em-Gee! This bounce is right on time! Yesterday, I just asked my husband (who's a deejay on the side) if he know if this was an old song that was used for the commericial. I love it!!! And I'm not hip to Kermit Quinn, but best believe I'll be checking for his recordings from here on out...bruh can SANG!!!

  7. I like it! I'm not sure what's wrong with it sounding like an old negro spiritual...i mean are people embarrassed by it or do they think the spiritual's are too holy to be in a drink commercial. Ne way. i love it. I'm just confused as to where David Banner comes in. Is he singing? Or did he just produce it?...and who is Kermit?lol I gotta check him.

  8. Great song!
    I assumed it was an old Little Richard song that I didn't know. It sure has that 50s R&B sound, and the person singing (the verse, anyway) could be Richard's clone.
