Eric Benét is back in a big way with his new song "Sometimes I Cry" from his upcoming CD "Lost In Time" and the first single has soul and legs.

We are glad to hear Eric hitting those high notes and just being his soulful self, which sometimes, is all you need.

Check out "Sometimes I Cry" below and tell us if we should Funk It or Dunk It?  It's getting the funk pass from me for sure.-Dr.FB

Ms. Testaloni has schooled Mr. Benet, very well. Of course he's always sounded good, and Eric has always put out some soulful ballads. But, I think he's taken a big page from the Prince's riffs, as well as his chord progressions and enunciation. Kudos on a terrific song, and the flattery given to Prince through his "dead on" imitation.

Ya I really don't like to point out when an Artist sounds like Prince - since I felt Prince's music set the trend on a lot of todays music..... but I just think that Eric went a little to over the line. LOL PS ; CHOCOLATE BOX - What's funny is - that I had no idea he was dating one of Prince's Ex. Now I'm glad I wrote my first comment. LOL Musgrave - Chicago

Dunk it!! Eric's been listening to a lot of Prince and it shows... Not as good as any of Prince's ballads.

He tries too much to sound like Prince on some of his songs. It doesn't help that he also is dating Prince ex. @ Musgrave it does sound like "U Make my Sunshine". I will say he is gifted & talented & I do like his music. But there is only one Prince & no one does ballads like him & no one ever will...

Man, it just seems like this guy just keeps on making good music. This is a GREAT song. One hit on him is that his sound hasn't really changed over the years, but you know what, I'm glad! He's not trying to autotune his voice or have rappers all over his album to try to do what everyone else is doing "today." He's just making great effing music, and that's what true musicians do. FUNK IT!!!!
