He’s reunited with Keke Wyatt for a revamp of R&B music in this generation of love making music.
Their single “You & I” has kick started buzz for his coming album, landing on the top 10 of Billboard’s Adult R&B chart.
The two first came together for their hit record, “My First Love,” becoming one of Avant’s top singles during the early part of his career.
Avant says his new album is a bit of everything for the new and old fans.
“It’s a taste of new school and old school,” explains Avant. “You might hear a piece of, say, Stevie Wonder or Babyface, then I spin right back around and offer up some new age R&B. It’s a well-rounded album with something for everyone. At the end of the day, Face the Music is about who we are and what we live by; it’s about respecting that as well as the music.”
Avant will be on tour through April.
