Flashback Friday: Teddy Pendergrass and Chris Brown

The week is finally wrapping up and if you’re like me, you deserve the coming break.

Let’s wind things down with some R&B, shall we?


Teddy Pendergrass, Teddy (1979)

JUST LOOK AT THAT. Now that, my friends, is how create an album cover. Teddy P is one of the most iconic names in the history of R&B and his 1979 album might be his best known work. This collection of bedroom ballads will never go out of style.

“Set Me Free”


Chris Brown, Exclusive (2007)

The Breezy fans in the house give me a hard time for being so critical of my infamous R&B cousin. Listen, there’s no question that he’s been the face of the genre for more than a decade. It’s just that most of the albums in that decade have been … less than stellar – excluding this one. Exclusive is among Brown’s best work, showcasing needed growth from his debut while pushing his sound (and R&B as a whole) forward. Can’t hate on that.
