After years of not hearing the heartfelt R&B I heard as a child, I finally came across something pure, Desmond Champion with “Love How We Vibin.” I was soo refreshed after listening for only a few moments. This is the perfect time to bring back real R&B. Now I know that times change but why is the R&B genre being killed off or changed into sloppy comeback songs? It seems that the genre is over killed with depthless hits that only talk about what someone doesn’t want in love, covered by excessive and horrible vocals. But, to my surprise it seems R&B is being resurrected by a few old heads and amazingly by Desmond Champion. “Love how we Vibin” was exactly what I needed to be reassured the genre has not fallen off the grid and that love still exists in a world full of hatred, relationship fraudulence, and death without purpose.
I was so excited to hear this tune while scrolling my Facebook page, and to my surprise it was actually worth hearing more than just the snippet that was shared. Desmond’s voice caught my attention first, but the lyrics rapped themselves around my heart strings. In an industry so over saturated with horrible lyrical content this was like breathing fresh air after breathing in nonstop pollution. “Love How We Vibin” is very relatable tune. Love is more than saying “I love you,” or asking “will you marry me,” and Desmond captures the vibrational exchange between two people in this song.
Desmond Champion is reversing the R&B halt by going back to its roots or the basics- something that is greatly needed in the industry. This is in no way intended to throw salt on the others in the industry,but it is a way to say “step up your game,” because Mr. Desmond Champion is paving the way back to the heart of the matter and I for one am down for the cause. The acoustic versions of his music are just down right amazing! The acoustics just emphasize the angelic voice of Desmond Champion whose name is right on the money, he’s a champion, of lyrical content. His recordings just don’t give him enough justice because the live performances will have you hooked and playing everything on repeat just to get your daily musical fix. Don’t let this one slip through your fingers, check out Desmond Champion now, you won’t be disappointed.
