Soundbyte!


All the mushiness of the last few days has been shelved to make way for end of year reports and the christmas spirit. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. Telling him would make sense i know but i am not sure if i am ready for that.


Anyway, my song for today is a feel good song and is actually by a whole ton of hot male artists:

Black Men United - You will know

This song is on the Jason's Lyric soundtrack and i remember it causing a bit of a stir when it came out. The movie had some pretty hot scenes with Jada Pinkett Smith and the song - hot as well.

Black Men United made up of artists like Aaron Hall, Tevin Campbell, Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight etc i guess wanted to pen a positive anthem for black men. Jason's Lyric came out at about the same time as hardcore movies like Menace II Society and Boyz in the Hood so the perception of the black man at the time was gritty...

Anyway, its old, it takes me back and brings back some memories so enjoy!

*If you would like this song, leave me an email address in the comments section*

I want the song..chicafricana@gmail.com. I loved the whole Jason's Lyric Soundtrack. In fact, I may go order it right now.......it had Crazy Love remake by Brian McKnight, If you think you're lonely now remake by K-Ci of Jodeci, Forget I was A G, and Many Rivers to Cross by Oleta Adams. And U Will Know....Tevin Campbell, Brian McKnight, D'Angelo and other fine men. "When I was a young boy, I had visions of fame. They were wild, they were free and they were blessed with my name.....". Love that song! The movie itself......not so much! LOL
