Aaron Hall was the silky-voiced lead singer of uber-producer Teddy Riley's New Jack Swing trailblazers Guy. He also sounded more than a little like Charlie Wilson of the Gap Band - no bad thing at all.
Post Guy break-up, Aaron had a few solo hits like the superb Don't Be Afraid from the excellent Juice OST, and this track, Curiosity, taken from the Dangerous Minds OST - yes, that's the film that *THAT* Coolio song came from.
It's a nice, funky slice of street-soul, produced and written by Mr. Dalvin of Jodeci and one Missy Elliott, but the Marley Marl Remix is the one you'll want to go straight into. It's much, MUCH funkier, and features Redman, one of my favourite emcees, spitting a couple of verses that again help lift it above the original.
There's also a nice instrumental for you mixologists out there - something I always look for in a release, although there is no acapella.
