Tasia Wells/Getty ImagesKenny Lattimore released his new album Vulnerable on Friday, and he’s grateful to a legendary baseball player for making the album a reality.
Lattimore tells Ebony.com that he’s signed with a new company called Ligers Enterprises, which is co-owned by Frank Thomas, the Major League Baseball Hall of Famer who played for the White Sox, the Oakland A’s and the Toronto Blue Jays.
“Push” is the first single from the album. Lattimore says it reminds him of when he was dating a girl several years ago in Washington, D.C. and was about to move to New York City.
“I decided to end my relationship because I didn’t think that she was going to be able to deal with the grind,” he remembers. “It was not a time where I could really continue a relationship because relationships require investment. Fifteen years later, I literally saw her and I told her that I should have never taken that opportunity away from her and made the decision for her.”
Lattimore will tour to promote the CD, and he says you can expect a wide variety of music during his shows.
“I’m listening to Daniel Caesar and Bruno Mars and these are amazing artists. Bruno Mars has even found a way to combine three or four generations of music, which is amazing,” Kenny explains. “I’m kind of like that in my live concerts.”
“I’ll also do R&B from the ’80’s and stuff I grew up listening to in the ’70’s. I go all the way down to the American songbook from the ’40’s and ’50’s all-in-one because I’m a classically trained singer,” he explains. “I love the idea of being completely diverse and having no boundaries as a singer.”
