Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Despite their technically flawless vocals and striking good looks, Kenny Lattimore and Chante Moore have failed to make it big as solo artists. Although Lattimore is best known for the wedding favorite "For You," and Moore scored with the celebratory ballad "Chante's Got a Man" ironically written about her first husband, actor Kadeem Hardison, the newlyweds give their careers a much-needed makeover with their first album together. Things That Lovers Do -- a mostly-covers collection joining ten classic R&B love songs with two new songs co-written and produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis -- showcases Moore's Minnie Riperton–reminiscent pipes and Lattimore's ...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Despite their technically flawless vocals and striking good looks, Kenny Lattimore and Chante Moore have failed to make it big as solo artists. Although Lattimore is best known for the wedding favorite "For You," and Moore scored with the celebratory ballad "Chante's Got a Man" ironically written about her first husband, actor Kadeem Hardison, the newlyweds give their careers a much-needed makeover with their first album together. Things That Lovers Do -- a mostly-covers collection joining ten classic R&B love songs with two new songs co-written and produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis -- showcases Moore's Minnie Riperton–reminiscent pipes and Lattimore's pristine tenor. Highlights include saccharine-yet-stirring covers of Rene & Angela's "You Don't Have to Cry," Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright's "With You I'm Born Again," and the Babyface–Karyn White duet "Love Saw It." Coinciding with the winter 2003 release of Things That Lovers Do, Moore and Lattimore embarked on an eight-city tour in a musical play of the same name. Move over, Ashford & Simpson paid homage here with two covers, including the classic they penned for Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, "You're All I Need to Get By" -- there's a new dynamic soul duo in town.

    Romantic, Sexual, Refreshing, Thought provoking

    I love the arrangement and the artists, who had the courage to re-visit some great love songs that are just as fresh today as they were years ago. I could feel the passion in their lyrics. Both have great vocal ability like many others, but they gave us more than that with this album. It is fun, playful, serious, and very romantic. I could just sit back (or make love), all day long and listen to these songs over and over again and the music would add so much more to the experience. So what these are remakes of old songs. Chanti and Kenny just made them better and have given these songs new life for the younger generation to really experience what real love songs are all about. Bravo! To both of you and I pray you have the rest of your years together. Always know you have a friend in Georgia. I will always remember when we younger Chanti, you told all of us that you would be doing exactly what you are doing today. You go girl! With much love, a fan, and old friend of Chanti Moore and new friend to Kenny Lattimore. I am so very proud of you Chanti. Love and respect, your old friend, Tanya R. Wilson-Moody, (from San Diego, CA, St. Stephen's Church) tanya_moody@yahoo.com

    The things that Hollywood newlyweds do

    My husband and I got married around the same time as Lattimore/Moore did (last year). And we think that it is a beautiful expression of their love for music and one another. We can't think of a better way for two extremely talented songbirds to show their love for each other and their choosen profession. We feel that it was a great effort. We just listened to the sample section. We were going to get it; now we are going to get it so we can enjoy it on our first wedding anniversary in the poconos (next week).

    A "Loveable" Celebration!

    When an artist chooses to remake a love song deemed a "classic", they are usually doomed to criticism. With remakes, there are more misses (Madonna's "Fever", Trey Lorenz's "Just to Be Close to You") then hits (Mariah Carey's "I'll Be There", Dixie Chick's "Landslide"). With Kenny Lattimore & Chante Moore's duet project, Things That Lovers Do, they were no doubt aware of this. They must have known that they would have to "bring it" if they were to redo classics like "With You I'm Born Again", "You're All I Need to Get By" and Lionel Richie's "Still". And what a classic pair these two make! Although each artist has released three albums each throughout the 90's, their hits have been few. With all the music that I've listened to (and critiqued) over the years, the only song I really remember by Kenny is "For You". Chante has faired a little better with R & B hits "Chante's Got a Man" and "Straight Up". Together, they are an undeniable force. The 2 original songs "Loveable" and "Things That Lovers Do" are mediocre at best, especially in comparison to the remakes. On "With You I'm Born Again" and "Still", both artists have a chance to shine. While listening to "Love Saw It", I did miss the Karyn White & Babyface version. I also felt that the Blacks' original "When I Said I Do" was better. However, Kenny's vocals are smooth and rich on all of the songs. Chante's voice is a cool combination of Diana Ross and Mariah Carey as she confidently hits the high notes (ie. "Here We Go). They complement each other well although it's evident Chante Moore is the better vocalist. While not every track is a hit, the album is a fine tribute to great love songs. The album is evidence that Chante Moore & Kenny Lattimore are top rate vocalists who should be getting more credit (and hits) than they are. Looking forward to future hits! Celebrate LOVE with this album!

    Smooth

    This CD is great. I don't usually like remakes, but Kenny and Chante do the classics some justice. A great way to unwind after a greuling day!

    "Things that lovers do" has already been done.

    Although the music is good, the vocals are excellent and the duo idea is fresh, the lyrics are the same ones we've all heard before. I would like to see the duo do something a little more original. They are both great talents and I would like to see some of it.
