Come On In Eric and Tamia!
After teasing fans with some posts on Instagram about their reunion, veteran singers Eric Benét and Tamia have reconnected for a revamped version of Benét’s previous single “Sunshine.”
“I need to feel that sunshine,” they sing on the infectious duet. “The light that used to glow upon my face…I need to feel that sunshine.”
The remix comes ahead of Benét’s self-titled eighth studio album, due Oct. 7 via Primary Wave/Jordan House. The Tamia-featured version will be a bonus track on the album that arrives instantly with pre-order, available Friday (Sept. 9).
Originally, the two made history with the hit duet “Spend My Life With You” in 1999, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. They connected once again in 2006 with the ballad “Have To Go Through It,” off Tamia’s fourth album Between Friends.
Fans looking for more from Eric Benét can also find him on tour with Anthony Hamilton and Lalah Hathaway this October.
UPDATE: Eric has released two other new tracks today as well! The first is titled “Insane,” while the second is “Broke Beat & Busted.”
Take a listen to all three below!
