Babyface Return Of The Tender Lover on LP
Return of the Tender Lover is the tenth studio album by the poignant tune-smith, prolific hit maker/producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner Babyface. Filled with eight beautiful new original tracks of unapologetic R&B, Babyface plays on every track of the album including, although not limited to, his amazing and widely-praised guitar work with the intent to bring feel-good grooves back to music.
The title, Return of the Tender Lover, commemorates and pays homage to Babyface's breakthrough album of 1989, the RIAA triple-platinum Tender Lover. His second studio LP, it spun off a quartet of career-defining solo R&B/pop cross-over hits, "It's No Crime" (#1), "Tender Love" (#1), "Whip Appeal" (#2), and "My Kinda Girl" (#3). "We've Got Love," the new album's first single, a global message of love and connectedness, is closing in at Top 10.
Babyface is one of the most prolific and successful producers in pop music history. A sample of the artists he has produced and written (or co-written) hits for would include Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Eric Clapton, Colbie Caillat, Jennifer Hudson, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion among others.
