#ThrowbackThursday #TBT #BlackMusicMonth “Never Too Much” by Luther Vandross (1981)

Before there was Babyface, Tyrese, Tank, Ginuwine, Usher, Jason Derulo, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Jon B., Rico Love, Sebastin Mikael, Chris Brown . . . there . . . . was . . . . LUTHER who wrote his songs and had an ear for conducting amazing harmonies in his backup singers!

P.S. The street fashion in this video alone is worthy of a #ThrowbackThursday shoutout! 😉
