Just so we’re clear, Anthony Hamilton’s “The Point Of It All” track is on my list of personal favorite songs of the past five years. But since that record and album dropped nearly three years ago, Ant has been infamously quiet. Until now. Everyday’s a holiday on the Internet and today we have a triple helping of new records from the neo-soul marksman.
“Fantasy Girl” ranks as my least favorite of the three mainly due to the vibe of the beat and Hamilton’s soul drenched lyrics not making for the ideal combination. The other two, however, have some potential. Jack Splash’s “You” is two-step ready for the next cookout toting a powerful hook and overall feel-good vibe while “Why O Why” is the somber, semi-depressing, failed relationship ballad we’ve all come to love from Hamilton since the early 2000’s. Whether these are actually “new” or of the “unreleased” variety isn’t exactly clear at the moment. I’ll just hold hope this is a sign an album is somewhere in the near future.
