The latest vocal challenge is here, and fans are testing their vocal capabilities with Maxwell’s record “Fortunate.”
The song was released in 1998 and was featured on the Life soundtrack, which starred Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. The record earned the R&B veteran a Billboard award for Best R&B Male Vocalist and Best R&B/Soul Single at the Soul Train Awards that year.
Maxwell sees all and this was proven on late Monday night (Oct. 24) when the Urban Hang Suite crooner issued a dance challenge to those trolling his moves after a video of him performing went viral.
In a clip shared by entrepreneur Kashmir Thompson, the Haitian-Puerto Rican singer is seen getting down to his 2016 groove, “Lake By The Ocean,” which earned him the nickname Maxwell Thee Stallion during his tour earlier this year. Thompson captioned the post, “Maxwell ain’t got a single song that calls for this.”
Meanwhile, Maxwell is in the midst of The Night Tour‘s final leg, and brought along acts including Leela James, Musiq Soulchild, Alex Isley, and Fantasia. He is additionally gearing up for the release of his highly-anticipated album, blacksummers’NIGHT.
He spoke with VIBE last November about the album, explaining, “My goal is to bring that love. To bring that universal love, to bring that Black love, that Brown love, that Latin love, that Caribbean love, that African love. Love. L-O-V-E-E-E-E.”
