SUPER SOUL SUNDAY: “L.A. Reid and Babyface Midtempo Mix”

Every Sunday, I look forward to sharing with you, here on The G-Listed, a digital mixtape of more than an hour of house, soul, R&B, neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz, lo-fi, city pop, gospel, amapiano, or afrobeat music that I have been enjoying. These are the mixes that I enjoy as the soundtracks and background music of my workdays, moods, travels, or socializing with people having similar music tastes.

Today, I am excited to share a fan-made mixtape of midtempo R&B and pop music singles produced by legendary 1980s and 1990s music producers Babyface and L.A. Reid. This duo, former members of the 1980s band The Deele, became the go-to songwriter-producer team for many A-list R&B and pop music singers and bands seeking to extend their discographies of hits and iconic tunes. Babyface, neé Kenneth Edmonds, and L.A. Reid, neé Antonio Marquis Reid, are greatly known by music listeners for their #1 soul and pop music ballads they produced for the likes of Brandy, Whitney Houston, Boyz II Men, Mary J. Blige, Tony Braxton, Karyn White, Tevin Campbell, Bobby Brown, Madonna, and many more.

Check out this playlist, which I hope you enjoy as much as I have. It features tunes by En Vogue, Bobby Brown, The Jacksons, Karyn White, After 7, Jon B., Mac Band, Sheena Easton, Howard Hewett, LL Cool J, Jody Watley, Pebbles, Ariana Grande, and many more.

Press play on the YouTube video below to enjoy all these great throwback gems.

I hope you enjoyed this mixtape. Let me know what you think of it. Feel free to share your recommendations for similar music with me on Twitter or in this comments section.
