Mr. Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds is bringing another nostalgic gem to social media.
The veteran singer-songwriter will be revisiting the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack as a special treat on Mother’s Day on Instagram Live. After many viewers shared their love for the stories Edmonds shared during his epic Verzuz battle with Teddy Riley, Babyface decided to do the same with the 16-track, 1995 compilation.
“There were so many people on Instagram Live that wanted to hear music from the Waiting to Exhale [soundtrack] and so I thought this would be great, Mother’s Day, to play the Waiting to Exhale album, to tell stories, tell how it all happened and talk about the artists,” he shared with the co-hosts of ABC’s The View. “Because that was half the fun of it all in doing the Instagram Live was being able to tell stories and tell things people were so interested in that, so I thought it would be fun to do as well.”
Edmonds also announced that he’ll be releasing a new album, a first since his 2015 project, Return of the Tender Love.
“I write things all the time, but I don’t ever feel like putting it out. I’m always like, ‘Nah, that’s not it, that’s not it.’ So I’m the worst with that. (laughs) I have tons of things, and I feel like it’s time for new music.”
Watch the full interview below where he chats about his partnership with Michelle Obama as well as his experience with COVID-19 earlier this year. Be sure to visit Babyface’s Instagram account on Sunday, May 10 for a musical treat and stories.
