I seem to keep finding a lot of artists who have been out of the limelight for a good while for these Jam It Or Slam It? features. Today, we have one of Halle Berry’s ex-husbands, Eric Benet. His first release in three years is a ballad called “Sunshine.”
I should give Mr. Benét a little more credit. He has been nominated for four Grammys, and he did have a pretty good career going even without the famous ex-wife. This single is the first release for a new album scheduled to come out in the fall. According to the singer, the song is about: “a reflective memory about a relationship that has lost its spark,” and memories of days gone by when love was better and life was joyous. And yes, his daughter is singing backup in the video.
Take a listen and say what you think. I like the horns and as always he sounds really good. If pressed, I would jam it, but I don’t think I’d spend my last dime. But if I keep listening, maybe that money takes wing a little easier.
