In My Ears - Tevin Campbell

I recently had the enjoyment of watching A Low Down Dirty Shame again. This movie has always been hilarious to me. The ending credits featured this first song by Tevin Campbell. I said Heeeeeeey and started dancing. This song was definitely a slept on jam by him. I then thought to myself that I'd feature him in an In My Ears post.
Here are a few songs I enjoyed by Mr. Tevin Campbell. He had such a great voice! I think drugs got him but I hope he is doing well. oops thanks Keyalus! And of course Round and Round which K Rock pointed out is in the opening song to Top Chef.

I think I have all of Tevin's CDs! I was a huge fan. I don't know about any current drug problems, but he did a stint on Broadway in "Hairspray" 3-4 years ago. I love the songs sung by his character and would have loved to hear his version.

"I'm Ready" didn't make the list?!? He also has some ballads on his later CDs that are worth checking out - "Could It Be," "Beautiful Thing," "For Your Love" and "Tell Me Where."

I love that K. Rock recognized the beginning to Round and Round on Top Chef. I kind of thought I was crazy for thinking that was Tevin.

Li'l Tevin Campbell...I used to love me some him! He is in heavy rotation on my 90's playlist ;-)

Wow Broadway?? That's good to know!! I'm sure he was really good in that role.

I saw him on something and he just looked like hard living and drugs like Jodeci.

I can't believe I missed "I'm Ready" I thought it was there! Added! :)

I did a TT and K Rock mentioned that and I was like yeah..okay!

@ichoosethesun
Yes, definitely apart of my 90's soundtrack. He has such a great voice and needs an Unsung.

Guuuuurrrrrl dont get me started on how much I used to love T.C. My first venture to a teen club was to see him. My faves by him are Alone With You, Goodbye, and Just Ask Me To (from the Boyz in the Hood soundtrack). Just mentioned on Twitter the other day that I had the biggest crush on him but it wasnt until later that I learned he wasn't even checkin for me :/.

@K Rock
Crack-in up that you were checkin for Tevin! He was cute though.. I really thought he would grow up to be fahn too! :( He had some real jams and at the time I thought he would be a HUGE success. I was glad to hear he has done some recent work.

@DianaBoss
Right?!? I was shocked at the path his life took. It's sad.

Oooh, he should go on Dancing with the Stars.

@pserendipity
That's actually a good idea. He could do that then make a new CD and have a comeback. :)

@P.S.
Yeah Tevin needs an Unsung. He is definitely a wasted talent.
