Oldie Butta GoodieBar: Avant – Separated


R&B singer Avant first came onto the scene back in 2000 with this song Separated. It eventually shot up to number 1 on the US R&B charts and was very popular amoung R&B heads. Avant is from Cleveland orginally and has a sound and look similar to his idol R.Kelly’s – hence the constant comparison between both artsits. I can see the resemblance music and stylewise, but Avant was alot softer than R.Kelly with his image and his music. In my opinion, he was at his best when he kept to this formula. If you’ve been sleepin’ on Avant, you really must check out some of his older albums, starting with My Thoughts, Ecstasty (ChokLit’s Choice) and Private Room. Even Director was good. If you remember this video, Avant is haunted by an Ex girlfriend who goes a little pyscho when he breaks things off with her and decides to get revenge on Avant in a crazy way. A Hood classic – even if you ain’t from the Hood! Enjoy.

Avant also did a Remix to Separated with a young Kelly Rowland. You can peep that video here.
