His song "Sunshine" would probably sound familiar because the hook that Babyface sang on Jay-Z's Sunshine came from Alexander's song.

He had other hit songs like "Fake" and "Criticize"(another video where he spends entirely too much time looking weird into the camera), and "All True Man"....which I listened to because Phife Dawg mentioned it on "Butter", lol.

In addition to what LB said. He had a lot of good songs in the 80's.

That's the song I know him most for too. I watched his story on the "Unsung" TV show and life in the industry with drugs and money issues were not kind to him.


Also, @ that over dramatic and cheesy music video.

re: R&B Thread

Yeah I've heard the Sunshine song before, never heard A Broken Heart Can Mend.

I'm currently listening to music on iTunes and some songs from Kem began playing. Now I know he's not considered classic R&B but anybody in here listen to him?

Kem's "Share My Life" is played frequently on my R&B station. He's got a good voice.

re: R&B Thread

This is my favorite from him:



I wouldn't consider myself a fan, but he has some good songs. I also agree with you on his vocals.

Anyone who hasn't heard Eric Benets new album needs to ASAP. One of the few albums I actually loved damn near every song on it. Even a track he did with Lil Wayne was pretty good
