The Featured Artist/album this week will be Anthony Hamilton and although his current album as been out awhile, I never got a chance to feature it, and the opportunity arose this week. "What I'm Feeling" is one of those albums that just grows in stature, pay particular attention to the lyrics, Anthony Hamilton is a soulful man.
Other new music this week comes from Mo B and Gwendolyn Collins and I'll be album tracking the latest sets from David Hollister and Keith Sweat .. I never tire of Sweat's latest album "Dress To Impress" . I got a ton of Od Skool classics, some of which you just might have forgotten but I know you will enjoy.

Anthony Hamilton Biography:
A soul singer who drew comparisons to such classic vocalists as Bill Withers and Bobby Womack,Anthony Hamilton struggled for the better part of the 1990s as two of his albums went unreleased. While he didn't always get the label support his talent deserved, Hamilton established himself during the 2000s as one of the rawest, most singular, and relatable voices in R&B. He did so while racking up several Top Ten R&B albums and a handful of Grammy nominations.
The Charlotte, North Carolina native got his start at age ten in his church's choir. As a teenager, he progressed by performing solo at various nightclubs and talent shows. In 1993, while in his early twenties, he moved to New York City, where he signed with André Harrell's Uptown Records, a major source of the new jack swing sound and home to artists such as Jodeci and Mary J. Blige. By 1995, Uptown was set to push Hamilton's debut album, but the company went out of business, leaving the album unreleased. More at Allmusic
