Kenny Lattimore, The Voice You Didn’t Realize You Missed Is Back

Crooner Kenny Lattimore is back in the spotlight with his current single PUSH and his ninth studio album,Vulnerable set for release October 13.

It’s a fitting title for Lattimore, who says he is vulnerable in more ways than one. “But more generally, when I put together the collection, the theme was of a guy being open to a relationship again. He realizes his lady deserves to be in a committed relationship. You have to be vulnerable, to let your guard down, to be open to whatever happens. Throw caution to the wind.”

That’s classic Lattimore. His love songs have been the soundtrack to our lives for more than 20 years. What can fans expect from this album? Lattimore says he’s ever evolving. While he stays true to himself, old school as Vulnerable has an 80s feel, he teamed with music producer Dra-kkar Wesley, and you’ll hear a difference. “I told him to make this album his Jimmy Jam-Terry Lewis project – like their work helped Janet Jackson become a superstar. I want to be able to reach Dra-kkar’s generation. PUSH is outside of the box.”

Lattimore is in a reflective mood. “As I continue my career, I ask myself where do I fit in in 2017, and 2020?”

He’s had his hands full since his last album in 2015, fathering his 14 year-old son, acting in the racially charged film Switching Lanes, and serving as a national ambassador for the NAACP.

“I’m glad to be back, to continue the legacy, to sing to the hearts of women and encourage men.”
