Coming Home

I just watched Lionel Richie perfom 'I Call it Love' from his very very very new album 'Coming Home' on the Tonight Show. I am really digging his dark look, its hard to believe this guy is a day over 40 (he is actually 57!). The song sounded good, typical Lionel Richie fare. I must admit though I was a little confused as the song began; I thought Lionel Richie was billed to sing, not Ne-Yo. The beat reminded me so much of 'So Sick' I found my self singing the Ne-Yo lyrics to the Richie chorus! I am apparently not the only one who thinks the song sounds a lot like something Ne-Yo would sing, I found this article in the New York Times.

Lionel Richie (Agu Olariche) looks good for a 57 year old man. He has looked after himself quite well. Not a big fan of his work, but I will sample his new stuff.

I love Lionel Richie so much. His owrk with the Commodores, through to his work in the 80's and 90's. Wasn't a big fan of his last album but I bought the new one and am liking it. A couple of the songs are too "young" but considering he worked with the likes of Sean Garrett, JD and Dallas Ausitn who works with the ayounges, that's no surprise but thankfully they couldn't take away the essence of him and he especially shines on the songs he wrote himself.
