Adult R&B’s favorite duo, Norm Adams and Julia Robertson, are calling it quits…on their latest release, “Over”, impacting radio NOW.
“Over” is the story of a romantic relationship at a crossroads. As all the signs point to an inevitable end, neither person can bring themselves to fully accept the reality that things between them are changing. In their individual despair, each finds themselves clinging to the fleeting hope that their love and commitment to one another can somehow pull their relationship back from the brink. Says Adams, “It’s a scenario that most people who have been in committed relationships have faced at one time or another. That makes the song very relatable”.
The melancholic single, written by Adams and longtime collaborators Ted Wender and Chris “The Fourz” Brown, harkens back to the age of pop and soul classics by legends such as Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes and Aretha Franklin. At the heart of “Over” is its rousing chorus of background vocals, which features the talents of songstress Jacci McGhee (of Keith Sweat’s “Make It Last Forever” fame), and Robertson’s fellow ‘Ex Girlfriend” group mate, Tisha Hunter.
“Over“ is distributed by Sony/The Orchard.
