New Music: Ron Isley f/ Lauryn Hill – ‘Close to You’

Ron Isley and Lauryn Hill

Ron Isley does the near impossible by getting the reclusive Lauryn Hill to appear on his new track. Mr. Biggs and Ms. Hill duet on a cover of Burt Bacharach’s tender ballad “(They Long to Be) Close to You” for his upcoming album Mr. I (due Nov. 30). After her return to the stage and the charts, we’re more and more hopeful for some new L. Boogie tunes.

    Ronald and L-Boogie together! Timeless. I normally don’t post… BUT… I was moved to tears!…This song is what R&B should be. Beautiful lyrics that invoke the feeling of love-not of sex. Lauryn, I wish you could read this and know what you, your music and most of all your ‘voice’ means to us. My daughter is 12 and listens to your music is if it were 1998 all over again. She wrote an essay on one of your songs explaining how the words of Doo Wop (That Thing) are the same as what I have been teaching her for years… and that she appreciates the truth in those words and how R&B music today just doesn’t compare.

    Lauryn, please come back and bless us once more with your ‘voice’.

    **Yea, I know she probably won’t read this… But one can try!**

  23. Tonya and Gary

    I am in a place right now that is peaceful—after a hectic day—listening to this song—my heart skips a beat—I just told my future love for life that we will dance to this melody on 10-10-10—-she is awesome and really she could have done this two person song alone—I keep pressing re-play… I can’t wait until I can acquire something new from her……………………


  24. MusicatedOne


    Oh really? Like “Your love”? “Bottoms up”? “Single Ladies”? “Rude Boy”? yea today’s r&b artist are full of CLASSIC RECORDS! sit yo azz down!

    Ladies and Gents that idiot is just one of the many consumers who continue to kill the foundation known as R AND MUTHAF***ING B!


  25. **"Black Diamond"**

    after I take Ron down the isle with that song..that’s the best yet keep bring it…love that music from beginning to end…


  26. Dorothy
