The last time the Booth helped decide whether to give a song the single treatment, it was for Houston R&B singer Dallas Blocker‘s Boyfriend; since the reviews weren’t too hot, it’s likely that his label team is looking for a plan B. For Experiment #2, we present the online premiere of You and Me, a potential single off fellow R&B singer Jason Miller‘s currently-untitled debut. Showcasing an old-school mid-tenor vocal style similar to that of George Michael or Michael Jackson at his peak, Miller woos a high-class shorty with promises of rollerdome romance. Previously-unknown rapper Braz makes his debut with a cool closing verse, but it’s Akon‘s jazzy beat (who knew he could produce like this?) that makes You and Me a prime candidate for crossover success—old souls will simply LOVE it, and new-schoolers will find a lot to enjoy as well. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to listen to this record again—right after I dim the lights and get out some candles, of course!
