I think Maxwell’s music is soooo under rated if you ask me. I love his music! It’s smooth, it’s sexy, danceable yet slow jam-able at the same time. I think one of my most favorite groove songs from Maxwell is a song called “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),” released in 1996 from his “Urban Hang Suite” album. Now, hear is the real interesting part about this song. The song only reached #36 on the Top 100 Charts; however, in terms of the hip hop category, it reached #8 on the streaming charts. I’m not sure what to make of this. A while back, I’ve talked about the fact that eventually streaming numbers would be used instead of record sales. The way I see it, it makes it difficult for bloggers, because some songs will have both, as with the case with this song. Why is this a problem? Streaming wasn’t as popular as it is now, and it does change the dynamic quite significantly. Maybe as a classic blogger, I need to include both? As it would indicate a resurgence of popularity/interest? From the same album, I also love his piece called “The Urban Theme.” It has a hint of Blaxploitation to it, mixed with modern sound.
