NEW MUSIC: Maxwell’s Steamy and Sexy “Lake By the Ocean”

Silky, Steamy, Sultry, Sexy and Soulful are words to describe Maxwell and his music.  He hit the scene hard in the 90’s as part of the emerging neo-soul movement.   It’s been almost eight years since Maxwell last dropped an album and I have missed him and his music.  His latest release, blackSUMMERS’night is part two of his musical trilogy that started with in 2009 with BLACKsummers’night.   The release of this album comes on the 20th anniversary of Maxwell’s debut album Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite.  The first release off blackSUMMERS’night was “Lake By the Ocean.”  “Lake By the Ocean” is a perfect bridge back having Maxwell on rotation during every late night quiet storm broadcast and onto everyone’s baby makin’ tape.  This man can hit those notes and lyrics that makes a woman just… well you know JUST what I mean…maxwell-blacksummersnight

All I see is just
Everything is lust
Lake by the ocean (lake by the ocean)
Sweet like the motion
Love is the medicine
I can heal us
All I see is love

Maxwell is on tour with Mary J. Blige on the King + Queen of Hearts World Tour.  Get out and support live music when they come to your city.  You can see his touring schedule at  Be sure to add Strength of A Woman to your Libro Musica when it drops later this year.

Maxwell “Lake By the Ocean”

In describing the song, Maxwell describes it as a “love story about finding joy after having gone through struggle and betrayal. Small situations, like even a lake by the ocean, is big enough for you. When you’re so in love, you don’t need more.”

Add to blackSUMMERS’night your Libro Musica.  Winter may be coming but this album will certainly heat up your night.

Maxwell & Alicia Keys “Fire We Make”

Maxwell and his video producers knows that this man and his music makes the women sweat.  The video for “Fire We Make” with Alicia Keys is another one where we find Maxwell on a scorchin’ night at the center of a woman’s fantasy.
