With Second Chance, El DeBarge, one of R&B’s most distinctive and celebrated voices, returns to the spotlight after more than a decade and a half away. In stores now, the album – which features the work of such legendary producer/songwriters as Babyface and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, alongside tracks by new hitmakers Mike City, the Avila Brothers and Michael Angelo – tells the story of DeBarge’s redemption following a period of personal turmoil. Second Chance took on its full meaning when he began recording the title track, which became the first single. The new single “Lay With You” features Faith Evans.
El DeBarge’s triumphant appearance at the 2010 BET Awards, which instantly lit up the international soul blogosphere, was just the first step in a remarkable story of personal and creative transformation.
