As shown by the rave reviews and impressive sales numbers Raheem DeVaughn, Raphael Saadiq, and Maxwell all earned for their most recent albums, classic male R&B is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity. With the August 4th release of his major-label debut, I Get Around, Motown-born and bred singer K'Jon is looking to ride that timeless sound to similar success. The LP's second single is the definition of “crossover appeal.” On This Time, K'Jon describes a dream in which in he and his woman have broken up—upon waking, the singer realizes how blessed he is to still have her around, and resolves to no longer take her for granted.  Listen to the singer's semi-raspy vocals, along with his and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen producer Proteus' sweeping instrumental (complete with a children's choir) and just TRY telling us this track wouldn't sound good over a movie's closing credits—a Diet Rite says you can't.  Expect I Get Around to dominate charts despite the lack of heavy label label promo; music this good doesn't need industry shenanigans to find an audience.
