With just a little over two weeks left go to until Darkness and Light hits stores on December 2, the R&B crooner has offered up another teaser off of his upcoming fifth studio LP in the form of: “Penthouse Floor,” a smooth, head-knocking jam all about getting lifted and drowning out the noise. “All that bubbly all that wine/ Oh man look at the times/ Didn’t they notice, notice/ Only future I can see, ain’t what it used to be,” John preaches over the slow-moving, funky groove.
Meanwhile, Lil Chano comes through with an old knock-knock joke. “Knock-knock,” he rhymes. “Who there? It’s us. Us who? Just us.” It’s a solid little number, but surely, nothing to freak out over. Expected a little more from these two… What do you guys think?
