Recreations of classic songs can sometimes be touchy, but in the hands of R&B wunderkind Lovari, a recreation of a classic 90’s single by the legendary La Bouche was in good hands. The Billboard charting performer hand selected the single “Moment Of Love”, recreating it as a dance track, The video has a New York City street vibe and is directed by not one by two talented directors. Tamara Williams, who also stars in the video (and portrays “Summer” on Pose) & Tarrin Morgan, the creator of the Real Talk Sessions series.
Lovari says of the song, “When I was 18, I moved out of my house into Manhattan on 13th Street and 3rd Avenue, renting a room in the back of a recording studio Jambox, where I was making my demo. I was working two jobs at the time, including one at a record store, where the La Bouche cd was in constant rotation. My absolute favorite song from the album was “Moment Of Love”; it holds a special place in my heart. Although the lyrics blatantly celebrate the love toward a romantic partner, I also have personally aimed the song at the love I have for my baby nephew and niece, and unconditional love that animals have for their pet owners and vice versa. I was going through a very depressing period of my life when the original version by La Bouche was released and their entire album, especially this song, got me through some really difficult times.”
In a true full circle moment, Lovari himself recently interviewed La Bouche member Lane McCray. McCray had heard Lovari’s version of the song and spoke with Lovari at length. He also disclosed that he just may appear on a remix version of the track in the future!
