(April 5, 2020) For close to 30 years, R&B legend Brian McKnight has been churning out memorable ballads that have impacted multiple generations. Songs such as “One Last Cry,” “Still In Love,” “Anytime” and “Back At One”  continue to resonate with fans and peers. His latest single release successfully follows such rich musical history and continues his successful romantic run.

“Nobody,” the lead single from McKnight’s twentieth (and apparently his final) studio album Exodus, stands on its own as a love song that is a dedication to his wife Leilani. The accompanying video includes footage from their actual wedding, which helps to reinforce the lyrical content.  Fueled by a stripped down arrangement highlighting McKnight's signature piano and vocals, this single should easily find its way to multiple radio stations, and may even be destined to become the “wedding anthem" for this upcoming season. It’s a welcome return to form by McKnight and a song that should capture old fans, while making new ones.
