New singer B. Howard is not really new, at all. I’ve been listening to this track “Super Model” for MONTHS. I really like it a lot. It’s most likely no doubt due to the fact that he sounds very MUCH like Michael Jackson. I think B. Howard makes some hot uptempo dance-tinged R&B. He’s a bonafide star in Japan, and comes from a very musical lineage (his mother is singer Miki Howard, grandmother is Josephine Howard of legendary Gospel group The Caravans), and has worked and had credits with some of today’s top stars [official site].
He seems to have a style and look that is all his own, and his overly poppy music may not be your cup of tea. However, I find myself listening to his joints nonchalantly, repeated mere minutes after they’ve gone off. But you know, I miss MJ and I am a sucker for a decent pop song.
Check out his joint “Super Model” above and after the jump, peep his new video for his latest single “Dance Floor”. His album Genesis should be hitting soon.
I really want to hear what you guys think about him. Between him and Austin Brown (who is MJ’s nephew, son of Rebbie Jackson), I think they are great tributes to the legend that has “gone too soon.” Austin Brown’s “Target Practice” is on my playlist right next to “Super Model”, truth be told!
