Award-winning RnB singer Kenny Lattimore says South African music fans really pin their ears back when it comes to song lyrics.
According to Sunday World, Lattimore calls SA his “home away for home”, having visited the country numerous times since his first performance in 1998, and says he has noticed that fans here really listen to his lyrics.
“What stands out to me about my South African fans is that the meaning of my lyrics really moves them. They absorb every message being sung to them and they walk away transformed," the 44-year-old singer told the publication.
Lattimore also revealed that he will most likely be collaboring with popular afro-soul singer Lira in the near future, this after he recently teamed up with Donald for a track on his most recent album, ‘Black and White’.
“I have been in talks with Lira's management about doing a project with her in the near future. I just did a song with Donald called Spirit, which features on his new album. I also did a remix of a song which will be featured on a future project called Beautiful Nowheres," the singer told Sunday World.
Kenny Lattimore released his eponymous debut album in 1996, receiving Top 20 success with singles ‘Never Too Busy’ and the Grammy-nominated ‘For You’. After two more albums, he released two duet albums with now ex-wife, Chanté Moore.
He released a cover album called ‘Timeless’ in 2008, before starting his own record company, SincereSoul Records, in 2012. Lattimore has since released a new album, called ‘Back 2 Cool’.
