Love Is In Full Effect…<3

Through the entire month of February, GFM celebrates the illustrious amount of history and love that has been demonstrated within our musical culture. Matter of fact, we have dove into some of the most renowned records, tracks, and jamz of our time. However you prefer to use these “synonyms”, the meaning and description behind it is, and can be, simply magical. #SoulfulSaturday highlights this sexy throwback from Mr. Al B. Sure!.


Off of the 1992 album Sexy Versus, “Natalie” was the second single released from the album making its way onto Billboard charts. Al has stated that the inspiration for this sexy track was actress Halle Berry. Her role in the 1991 film Strictly Business gave Al the “boost” he needed to record this #ForGrownsOnly throwback. Enjoy the vibe #Growns. Also, check out the Sexy Versus Podcast of Al’s album.
