Album Notes and Credits
Photographer: Jim Wright .
Avant's entry in the Icon series covers his first six albums -- 2000's My Thoughts through 2010's The Letter. The disc contains only 11 tracks, but functions as an adequate anthology, as it features all of the sophisticated singer's Top Ten R&B singles: "Separated," "My First Love" (a cover of Rene & Angela's 1983 quiet storm classic, featuring Keke Wyatt), "Makin' Good Love," "Read Your Mind" (featuring Snoop Dogg), and "4 Minutes." There is more depth to Avant's discography, but this set will get it done for the casual fans. ~ Andy Kellman
Artist Overview
The cousin of R. Kelly, Avant (born Myron Avant) is an urban contemporary singer and songwriter. Avant struck gold with his 1998 single, "Separated," which cracked the top of Billboard's R&B charts. His 2000 debut full-length, MY THOUGHTS, was produced by Steve Huff and released on Magic Johnson's label Magic Johnson Music. The album set the template for Avant's modern soul sound, which bears resemblences to R Kelly's, a sound refined on subsequent albums such as 2002's ECSTACY and 2006's DIRECTOR. Avant signed with Capitol for his 2008 self-titled release, which spawned the Top 20 R&B single "Break Ya Back."
