“The resulting album ranges from the eponymous track ‘Breathe Again,’ a tender take on the desperately romantic song made famous by Toni Braxton, to an unapologeticly diva-licious stab at following in Whitney Houston’s tracks with ‘Queen of the Night.’…And yes, he covers ‘Red Light Special.’ And damn it’s sexy.”

“Using Hindi to claim ‘Parisien’ status, Gosine connects his roots in Indian indentureship to his contemporary existence, scattered between Europe, North America and the Caribbean.”
Out next Tuesday. Artwork by Juliana Neufeld.
“Take A Bow” is my personal favourite Babyface song (AND my fave Madonna song).
I sang this at a Junior high school assembly but had to sing the just Babyface parts cause I was a boy and all (wtvr). It’s nice to be old and get to do whatever you want/sing all the parts.
Check out my cover (free download) from BREATHE AGAIN: A Tribute To Babyface - OUT NEXT WEEK.
