Eric Benet Releases Lyric Video For New Song “Real Love”

Eric Benet has a new song entitled "Real Love" and has released a lyric video for it. The album is due to be released in Spring 2012.

Earlier this summer, Eric Benet got married and his wife Manuella is pregnant with the couple's first child.  We are sure Eric was inspired by both when recording this song.

The song is sung in a high falsetto by Eric much like his last hit "Sometimes I Cry" in which he earned a Grammy nomination.

Check out the lyric video above and let us know what you think.-DocFB

Eric Benét has a new CD on it's way November along with a tour as well.

Eric will be touring for the new CD entitled "Lost In Time" and will be playing with American Idol winner Fantasia. 

If the CD sounds nostalgic to listeners, there is a reason.  Eric is trying to bring that 70's soul sound back.  He will have duets with Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi, and the O’Jays’ Eddie Levert.

“People just need to have some feel good R&B in their lives,” says Eric.  “I want people to remember what music can feel like, and that desire took me all the way back to that time. My development as an artist is a direct result of being immersed in that era.”

Eric also returned to his roots of his hometown of Milwaukee when it came time to record the CD.  He even recorded with the Milwaukee Symphony Strong section for the CD. “When it comes to something that resonates in your soul, you have to have something constructed with live musicians.”

"Sometimes I Cry" is currently number 5 on the Urban AC Chart.  We must say, we are looking forward to something new from this cat.-Dr.FB

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