From The Vault: Bobby Valentino – ‘Slow Down’

Today we celebrate an R&B gem that was unleashed 11 years ago. This week’s From The Vault pick is Bobby Valentino’s ‘Slow Down.’

A modern day serenade, ‘Slow Down’ was produced by Tim & Bob and contains a sample of Hans Zimmer’s ‘A Way Of Life’ from the ‘Last Samuraï’ OST. It served as Valentino’s debut single and was included on his self-titled LP released in 2005.

A worldwide hit, the track reached the Top 10 in both the US and the UK, peaking at #8 and #4 respectively.

Directed by Erik White, the song’s clip was shot in Los Angeles, precisely Melrose Avenue, and took a literal approach to the cut’s lyrics.

Ludacris makes a cameo, as a way of introducing the new talent to the world. Literally. The rapper had signed Valentino to his Disturbing Tha Peace imprint.

**************

Though neither visually nor sonically groundbreaking, ‘Slow Down’ reminds that the mid 00’s served up many a memorable moment.

    Such a great song. I’m so proud to have grown up in such a mystically reputable era. So much classics came from these days.
