Things That Lovers Do

Leave it to Kenny Lattimore & ChantÉ Moore—married in music and life—to deliver one of the best non-hip-hop R&B albums in eons.

Leave it to Kenny Lattimore & Chanté Moore—married in music and life—to deliver one of the best non-hip-hop R&B albums in eons. Primarily comprising well-known love jams of the "quiet-storm" kind, the appropriately titled Things That Lovers Do finds the couple injecting new life into such gems as Billy Preston & Syreeta Wright's "With You I'm Born Again," Rene & Angela's "You Don't Have to Cry," and Ashford & Simpson's "Is It Still Good to Ya?" (here retitled "Is It Still Good to You"). The duo's rendition of Teddy Pendergrass' "Close the Door" is almost as hot as the original, while the Commodores' "Still" should have remained untouched. "Here We Go," originally handled by Minnie Riperton and Peabo Bryson, is a single-in-waiting. Fire and desire, from a couple in love.—MP
