We last heard from Anthony Hamilton back in 2009, when he dropped the solid yet somewhat overlooked The Point of It All. However, the man who literally brought the “blues” side back to contemporary R&B has been linked to some excellent collaborations as of late, joining David Banner for “Stutter” off the Death of a Pop Star album and, more recently, crafting the old-school sounding duet “So In Love” with Jill Scott.

As we wait for the forthcoming follow-up to The Point of It All, listeners and fans can enjoy this recent leak of A.Ham’s, “Why O Why.” “Why O Why” continues Hamilton’s formula of coupling classic instrumentation with soulful crooning and old-school sounding ad libs towards the track’s end. With such clever lines as, “You made your bed/ Now you must lay/ Girl, you turned the covers back, the wrong way,” it may not get the radio love it deserves, but again, it should at least whet appetites until we get further news of Hamilton’s next album.
