on the ocean r&b


Just got back from 1st vacation in awhile. Decided on some warmth and sun and tropics.  Anyway. Almost no place in the world seems to understand how music plays a part in the overall vibe of being on some island in the middle of the ocean.

That said. let’s go back to 2009 for a minute (mainly because I overlooked this song).


Let’s face it (part 1).

I am an old white guy so the black r&b stations are typically not high on my music rotation. So maybe I needed to go somewhere else to hear it.

Let’s face it (part 2).

But. A great r&b groove is a great r&b groove … and timeless.

This song just oozes out of the speakers.

Beautiful Music.

A beautiful voice.

This song, On the Ocean, I am sure was big but me, being a clueless white guy, just missed it.

But hey … I am the guy who thought Donnel Jones’ “U know what’s Up” was the greatest r&b song I had ever heard only to find out it had been out for over a year (and it is still a great song and maybe the highlight of CrazyBeautiful … okay .. La Siempre was the musical highlight of that movie).

Anyway. I am rambling.

Maybe in this genre I am always a couple of years behind.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm … maybe I am just a couple years behind in everything.


That is another post for another day.

Here is the song.

And just because I was curious ‘cause I had never heard of K’Jon.

A couple more nice songs:

Better late than never is my motto.
