The new single is “Lake By the Ocean” and the album, “BLACKSummersNight,”drops July 1st.
Honey, I’ve been craving some new Maxwell for awhile now. “Lake By the Ocean” is cute. It’s the type of song I’d expect from him. He should score some R&B nominations as well.
I can’t believe it has been seven years since his last album. It doesn’t even seem like it has been that long. This will be his first album since the new Grammy changes. His albums always got nominated under the old system. I suspect that love will translate to the new system as long as the work delivers. The fact that he’s a veteran and this is a comeback album helps his case. Still, several R&B vets have experienced high profile snubs in the R&B field in recent years so I guess you never know. I’m still surprised Sade’s last album missed out on an R&B Album nod/win.
