Neo Soul / R&B
Kenny Lattimore, an American R&B singer, is famous for his mid-1990s hits like “Never Too Busy” and “For You.”
Lattimore started out in the late 1980s with the vocal group Maniquin, only to leave the group in 1990 to go solo.
He hit it big in 1996 when his eponymous debut album generated two hit singles.
His debut album featured production by Kenneth and Keith Crouch, Kipper Jones, Oji Pierce, Herb Middleton, Barry Eastmond, Jimmy Abney and Dave Hall.
“Kenny Lattimore” was released in 1996 and it was a steady seller over the next year, going gold and spawning the Top 40 R&B hit “Never Too Busy.”
“From the Soul of Man” followed in 1998, offering even more original songs as well as a few covers, including a surprisingly sensual version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”
After his 2001 release, “Weekend,” failed to catch fire, Lattimore changed direction and recorded an album of duets with wife Chanté Moore.
Entitled “Things That Lovers Do,” the album offered new versions of songs from such romantic crooners Keith Sweat, Marvin Gaye and Lionel Richie.
After a greatest-hits compilation in 2004, Lattimore returned in 2006 with “Uncovered/Covered,” another album recorded with his wife.
