Bruno Mars isn’t the only contemporary artist this week serving up ’90s realness. Charlie Puth is as well. The 26-year-old singer enlisted Boyz II Men, who dominated that decade, for his new single “If You Leave Me Now” off his delayed new album Voicenotes.
“So I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that I have to push the album release date. I’m producing this album all myself and with that comes a lot of work, and in my opinion, the album is not perfect yet. However, it will still come out this year, and soon,” Puth wrote on Twitter. “But to make it up to all of you, here’s the good news. I’m putting out a song I did with Boys II Men tomorrow. And it’s probably one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. Love you guys and thank you for understanding.”
“If You Leave Me Now” is classic Boyz II Men that is reminiscent of their a cappella hits like “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.” Puth seamlessly weaves his vocals with the R&B group’s harmonies. I’m a fan. With that being said, a hot remix of this finger-snapping ballad would be dope.
Give the beautiful number a listen below. Wanya Morris’s vocals are as fantastic as ever.
