From The Vault: Faith Evans – ‘All Night Long’

Published: Sunday 9th Sep 2012 by David

From The Vault this week journeys back to the very end of the Urban friendly 90’s, precisely 1999 when R&B veteran Faith Evans released the bombastic single ‘All Night Long’.

Serving as the second single from Evans’ sophomore set ‘Keep The Faith’, the track proved to be another smash for the songstress, reaching the Top 10 of the Hot 100 and Hot R&B Hip-Hop tallies following the worldwide monster that was ‘Love Like This’. Similar to its predecessor, ‘Night’ was produced by Faith alongside Mr Sean Combs aka Diddy (or Puff Daddy as he was referred to back then). Of course, true-to-form Combs also had a guest spot on the song.

Directed by the great Paul Hunter, the single’s edgy japanese themed video remains a regular on the few music channels that actually still play…music. And with good reason too; indeed it’s a visual throwback to an era when R&B videos -on mass-had dollars and gloss pumped into them.

On a random note, the clip also serves up the LOL’s in that it’s also a nod to an era which saw Puffy hog up the screen of any song he produced or featured on. And in the case that is was both, it may as well have been his own video. For our younger readers, the mogul’s uncanny talent of putting himself first didn’t just apply to his Making The Band alumni.


With Faith and her fellow ‘R&B Divas’ riding high on the show’s success, we can’t stress enough how much we are salivating for a new Ms. Evans project. As witnessed by the show, she is still an artist who has much to say and of course that voice is just undeniable.

Let’s Keep The Faith and pray for that album to come out sooner rather than later.

    For real though, I can’t be tte only person that thinks Diddy is a DREADFUL rapper! One of the worst, even of he does make some good songs.

    Awww damn, how I miss the 90s!

    What a great time for music, not just R&B…in general! Pop, Rock, Dance, R&B, Hip Hop, etc. were all getting their fair share of radio airplay time (on CHR stations)!

    Faith Evans has had like a handful of really great singles (this jam, “Love Like This,” “I Love You,” You Gets No Love,” “Can’t Believe.”) beginning from the 90s until her ‘Faithfully’ album. Good catchy songs. Interestign how she sorta soared with Bad Boy for some time, but like all, she left too, ahahah, oh Diddy!

    Still no matter how much I enjoyed Faith Evans music throughout the years, and do agree Diddy was an everthing “hog” amongst Bad Boy…. I am NOT checking for new Faith Evans music like that. Not saying she shouldn’t be makign music any longer. She just needs to appeal to her audience, odler mature people, and R&B. I don’t wanna hear some trying to sound youthful music. Just my opinion. Think the same in terms of Mariah Carey. As a 23 year old I’d be mroe checkign for mature music by them than childish crap (like Mariah’s “Obsessed”).
