Raphael Saadiq & D’Angelo – “Be Here” (Review)

As the primary creative force behind Lucy Pearl and Tony Toni Tone, Saadiq has a rep for crafting simple, slowly ingratiating R&B. This warm, if predictable, duet with pal D’Angelo is more of the same. Though Saadiq’s whiny tenor can irk, the song’s easy take on commitment (”You should be here in the morning time when I’m making my breakfast”) is as cool and relaxed as its groove.
