If you yearn for the glory days of Eighties New Jack Swing, then look no further than the new album from Philly soul patrol including rapper Chill Moody, producer and songwriter Hank McCoy and R&B singer Beano.

The three have collaborated together over the last several years on a series of Valentine’s Day related releases and they have just released their latest, Who Do You Love…More?. It’s confident, well produced, well sung and well rapped and points to huge potential for this combination.

Back to the New Jack Swing thing, this new collection of songs is definitely rooted in the crossover world of R&B, pop and hip-hop. Highlights on the album include “StillYoung,” which nods to Keith Sweat’s “Nothing Lasts Forever, “WhatsForBreakfast,” and the sultry “KelisThing.” McCoy works in some pretty smart samples including the Paul Mauriat version of the Tom Jones classic, “It’s Not Unusual.” If you want to bridge the gap between 80′s New Jackers like Keith Sweat, Guy, Teddy Riley and New Edition and the latest interpretation of R&B and hip-hop, then McCoy, Moody and Beano’s new release is right on time.

The Chill Moody x Beano x Hank McCoy Who Do You Love…More? record release show is this Friday evening, February 7th at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Below, listen to “LastNightInTown” from Who Do You Love…More?
