Today is like Christmas in March for Anthony Hamilton fans. Not only did he drop the music video for his single "Amen," but he's blessed us with the release of the new track "Save Me," which will also be found on his forthcoming album, What I'm Feelin'.
"Save Me" sees Anthony pushing up on a grown ass woman and kicking some smooth game. Hamilton's strategy is that of chess not checkers, though, as he sings about taking his time and his chances. He is smitten by this woman's looks and admires everything about her, quickly deciding that she's the one. The way he sings, "I just want to be born again, baby / You give me life / Save me if you will / Oh darling, you give me life," over rhythmic guitars, thumping drums and funk ad libs on the bridge that would make George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic proud, she surely sounds like his savior. The song blends the sacred and the secular lyrically with the soulful and the funky musically to create yet another bona fide, Southern fried hit from Hamilton. We already can't wait to hear this jam performed in concert on his joint tour with Fantasia because we know that Anthony, The HamilTones and The Extravaganza Band are going to go slap off.
The March 25th release date for Anthony Hamilton's fifth official studio album, What I'm Feelin', is rapidly approaching -- and can't come soon enough, truth be told. If you can't wait to give AHam your coins, then you can pre-order it on iTunes now and get this new joint and "Amen" as instant downloads.
