Tonight may herald my return to bachelorhood. You see, my wife has left me. She's on the road to stay with her best friend. I know what you're thinking, that she's fed up with my whorish ways, but quite the contrary, this is all her.
Her other man is in town...well to be more exact, her other man is in her friend's town. Tonight at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, Virginia, Maxwell will be performing live. The wifey was quite upset that he'd been so absent-minded as to not schedule an NC stop originally, but assumed it was a mistake by his staff. He's since corrected that mistake with an NC stop next week, but since she already had tickets it was the perfect opportunity for a little one-on-one time for them.
For those of you unfamiliar with Maxwell (shame on you!), he's a sensual and studly R&B singer who came on the scene back in 1996. His first album, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite, was followed by Embrya in 1998 and Now in 2001. Shortly thereafter, he vanished. Rumors flew as to his whereabouts, sexuality and mental state. "Lies, all lies" as my wife would repeatedly say. After having gone ghost for nearly eight years, last fall rumors of his return began to take root. As of July 7 his newest album, BLACKsummer's Night, was officially in stores and women everywhere rejoiced.
It won't be long before you'll be hearing more than your share of his newest single, Pretty Wings, but let's rewind it back to when this cat first hit the scene. Here's his second and most popular single from Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite. I'm sure this will put more than a few of you in a mood despite having to sit through a lame advertisement.

My wife claims she'll be back home by tomorrow evening. I don't see why she wouldn't, at the very least she'll need to pack more than an overnight bag if she plans to join him on tour.
