Anthony Hamilton: Back to Love
Anthony Hamilton cut his teeth singing in a church choir at age 10; by 22, he’d moved to New York City and signed a record deal. The soulful singer has gone on to collaborate with the likes of Nappy Roots, Jadakiss, and Al Green, the latter with whom he won a Grammy in 2009 for the duet “You’ve Got the Love I Need.” On his 2011 solo album, Back to Love, Hamilton croons about relationships on songs that range from uptempo funk throwbacks to moody ballads filled out by lush string arrangements.
Pop and R&B singer Keri Hilson, the lone featured artist on Back to Love, lends her sweet soprano voice to the love song “Never Let Go.” Its in the mixing room, though, where maybe the most important collaborations took place. Grammy-winning R&B artist Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds co-wrote and produced what many critics consider the album’s standout tracks: “Woo,” “Pray for Me,” and “Mad.”
“You’ll find [Hamilton] singing here in an imploringly mellow style, his tone conveying the deep-amber viscosity of something you’d pour over your pancakes. He sounds marvelous.” – the New York Times
“Where Hamilton’s past albums have lured in listeners with their slow, sensual pull, Back To Love grabs them outright with the soul man’s punchiest, most immediate batch of songs yet.” – A.V. Club
“Back to Love is as solid as any of his previous six albums, but its high points are the three tunes co-produced by Babyface.” – Entertainment Weekly
