With an impassioned tenor that suggests he knows from whence he sings, R&B smoothie Eric Benét deftly explores the titular themes of his latest disc. On "Don't Let Go," the breezy midtempo highlight, Halle Berry's ex offers advice to "people throwing in the towel once they pass the honeymoon phase."
