Here’s something for ya if you happen to remember Vesta, an R&B singer from, like, 20 years ago.
Ask a nursing assistant to wheel your ass into the sun room, and please enjoy the nostalgic smooth-jazzy Quiet-Stormy stylings of Vesta as she sings Marvin Gaye’s “Distant Lover.” Click here to stream it on my Vox site.
(When we get old, y’all, our music becomes old-people music. Ain’t that a blip? But it’ll happen to hip-hop too. Just watch.)
Vesta put out a whole album of R&B covers (including a duet with Peabo Bryson) in early 2007. It’s downloadable from eMusic, Amazon.com and iTunes.
The track “Distant Lover” is available as a FREE MP3. Follow this link to Download.com.
