Remember “You & I” Singer, O’Bryan? He’s Now Making 56 Look Like 36 & Women Luv It
ILOSM fam’ we have some interesting info for y’all regarding singer, O’Bryan. Remember him? If you’re a true Old School music fan, you more than likely do…
Back in the day, we couldn’t go to a house party, club, nor school dance without hearing these lyrics bumping through the speakers at some point:
Here we are on earth together
It’s you and I
God has made us fall in love, it’s true
I’ve really found someone like you
Just thinking about that classic makes me wanna go buy a red lightbulb red lightbulb and get my slow drag on right about now. C’mon know family, let’s not act like I’m the only one…a lot of y’all have those memories too.
Anyways, about O’Bryan, he first caused mass hysteria with his Stevie Wonder penned 1983 hit single, “You and I” that will forever be a soul classic, “Together Always,” and several more. And a year before that, in 1982, he hit us with the classic, “The Gigolo.” All of this was soon after Soul Train founder, Don Cornelius, hooked O’Bryan up with the right people to land his record deal with Capital Records. Afterwards, the rest was history and to the disappointment of many R&B fans, so was his time in front of the R&B spotlight. He took a pretty long break from the industry but then had a change of heart…
We did a lil’ digging to find out what’s been up with O’Bryan these days and turns out, we didn’t have to dig all that much. The brotha is still in the music game and has been back since 2007 when he released his album, “F1RST.”
Today he’s making his 56 years age look like the new 35 and the ladies are still loving him everywhere he touches down.
New Compilation Album, “For The Love Of You”
O’Bryan also has a brand new album titled, “For The Love Of You,” which will release on May 12, 2017. His page describes it as a ‘release of his ballads anthology “For the Love of You.” This compilation features 17 classic slow jams from the maestro himself. and you can get a sample of it through his website at www.obryanmusic.com.
O’Bryan is also still performing across the country, so be on the lookout when he comes to your town. O’Bryan has a message for one of his upcoming shows:
So…as for why many of us haven’t been seeing him for so many years? The answer is simple: we weren’t looking hard enough.
Like always, we love seeing an entertainer from the old school, still making their mark in this world by doing what they love.
