publish date: 2017-02-17
Nearly 29 years after Al B. Sure!'s classic hit "Nite and Day" hit No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, the track has returned with a fresh spin -- this time covered by Sure's biological son, singer and Star actor Quincy.
"I didn’t want to devalue the beauty that is, was, and always will be in (the original)," Quincy tells . "I’m not trying to present this as the new 'Nite and Day.'" The revamped tune -- titled "I Can Tell You (Night & Day 2.0)" -- is found on Quincy's new album, This Is For You, which was released on Feb. 14. Sure's original take spent three weeks atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in April and May of 1988.
Quincy -- who is the adopted son of Sean "Puffy" Combs and godson of Quincy Jones -- stars as Derek on the Fox TV series Star alongside Queen Latifah.
