Brand New Heavies Get Used To It
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Delicious Vinyl
"Hope you‘re ready/Here we come/We ain't gon' leave you with nowhere to go," N‘Dea Davenport coos on "We've Got," announcing the return of BNH's grown and sexy music. The OGs of neo-soul pick right up where they left off with an album that could have easily been recorded 10 years ago, or 10 minutes ago. Davenport channels Diana Ross ("I Don‘t Know Why"), liberates your mind ("I Just Realized"), rides a sultry rhythm while chastising a wayward lover ("We Won't Stop"), and evokes classic disco ("Let's Do It Again"), while the Heavies prove they've still got the grooves.
