R&B crooner Kenny Lattimore has just released a new music video for his latest single “You’re My Girl,” the third release from his “Anatomy of a Love Song” (eOne Music) album.
The latest video features actress Nadine Ellis as Lattimore’s love interest. The former star of BET’s “Let’s Stay Together” was also the leading lady in the Washington, DC native’s music video for his previous single, “Love Me Back.”
“I appreciate the beauty of Nadine Ellis from head to toe. Physically she is gorgeous, which is great for video but I have also had the pleasure of knowing her as an individual and I am naturally attracted to her, so I don’t have to act to create chemistry,” Lattimore told AlwaysAList.com, before adding: “It’s real! That compliments the authenticity of the love song.”
Despite sharing his affection for the former member of the Pussycat Dolls, Lattimore wouldn’t disclose if art was imitating life and whether he was serenading Ellis with love songs outside of the videos.
“It feels great to know that music listeners are connecting not to just one song on this album but the entire body of work. I put a lot of ‘blood, sweat and tears’ — pun intended — into this project,” expressed Lattimore. “I financed it myself, made all executive decisions so the personal investment is paying off. I have to give credit to the great writers, artists and producers that I worked with. They helped to keep ‘Anatomy of a Love Song’ authentic to my sound, but also added their own creative flavor to make a timeless collection of songs.”
The 45-year-old entertainer, who was previously married to R&B vocalist Chanté Moore, toured twice last year as a result of the success of “Anatomy of a Love Song.”
Last summer, he was the special guest for Dave Koz and Rick Braun’s 21-city tour. Last winter, he joined Will Downing’s “Sounds Of Christmas” tour with jazz diva Maysa.
Lattimore is currently on an acoustic tour of his own performing music from “Anatomy of a Love Song,” in addition to his classic hits like “For You,” “Never Too Busy,” “Weekend” and his cover of the Norman Connors’ classic, “You Are My Starship.”
