Who knows how this combination came to be, but it just maybe genius. Two classic voices on one classic song is clearly, for lack of a better term, CLASSIC. This cover of Burt Bacharach’s ‘Close To You’ will be featured on Ronald Isley’s new album Mr. I. and should keep Lauryn fans at bay since this is the second taste of new music they’ve gotten from her in months.
Both singers grace the track effortlessly, not doing too much. The song is melodic and simplistic in the sense that these two artist are purely giving the fans their sound no extras. Ron Isley’s smooth falsetto mixed in with the soulfulness of Lauryn and the effortless composition and arrangements thanks to Burt, makes for one great remake.
