Babyface is back.
The legendary singer/songwriter/producer is currently working on his ninth studio album, and first since 2015’s Return of the Tender Lover, with his new label Capitol Records. He has now shared his first offering from the forthcoming project, “Keeps On Fallin’,” with Ella Mai.
“When I first heard Ella’s voice, I thought, ‘what an incredible and distinctive voice, I have to get in the studio with her!’” Babyface said in a statement. “Well, I did…and it was everything I imagined and more!”
“Working with Babyface was an absolute dream come true for me,” Ella added. “To be welcomed and praised by someone so talented and acclaimed, I couldn’t have asked for our ‘Keeps On Fallin’ sessions to be any better. We sang, we wrote, we laughed and we talked. Babyface is so humble and a pleasure to work with, I hope this record is the start of many more.”
What is interesting, “Keeps On Fallin'” interpolates Tevin Campbell’s 1993 hit “Can We Talk,” which Babyface produced alongside Daryl Simmons.
