NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ By Rick Scott/ Great Scott Productions) - The amorous vocal tones of Howard
Hewett are seducing Urban Adult Contemporary radio listeners with his recently released single, 'Can U Feel Me,' the second cut from the new If Only' album. Each week, the sensual ballad is amongst the most added to radio stations' playlists and is earning significant spin increases ever since it debuted high at No 27 on the Urban Adult Contemporary chart. Now poised to enter the top 20, 'Can U Feel Me' was written by Hewett, Earth, Wind & Fire's Ralph Johnson, and Joe Wolfe.
Hewett and Johnson produced the track, the follow-up to the top 20 single, 'Enough.' If Only', Hewett's first R&B album in over a decade, was released May 15th by The Groove Records label, a division of entertainment conglomerate The Machine Productions, which is distributed by Navarre/Koch.
To support the album release, Hewett has been performing concerts across the country. At an intimate club date recently held at B.B. King's in the Los Angeles area, Hewett was joined on stage by the legendary Stevie Wonder
and Teena Marie, which stirred the packed house ' including actress LisaRaye McCoy and actress-celebrity fitness trainer A.J. Johnson - into a frenzy. This past weekend, Hewett took the stage to perform in Las Vegas
at Chris Webber's 'Bada Bling!' Celebrity Weekend to benefit the basketball star's non-profit organization that raises money to increase literacy amongst disadvantaged youth. Also on the bill were Raphael
Saadiq, The Isley Brothers, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh.
Next week, Hewett will tape a performance of 'Can U Feel Me' for the new TV ONE network show, Baisden After Dark, hosted by popular national radio personality-author-motivational speaker Michael Baisden. The airdate will be announced. Hewett performs on local morning television shows while on tour and will next appear on Live at 9 for the CBS network affiliate in Memphis, Tennessee on August 10th.
