Gotta Hear This: Phonte | “Gonna Be A Beautiful Night” ft. Carlitta Durand [Video]

Little Brother alum Phonte has done pretty well flying solo, having released a second Foreign Exchange record that  garnered him a Grammy nomination and followed it up with an amazing solo album, Charity Starts At Home.  This time, the emcee shows off his soulful side with his latest single, Gonna Be A Beautiful Night.

The North Carolina native enlists singer Carlitta Durand to accompany him on the S1 & Caleb-produced track, gorgeously depicted by director Kenneth Price.

While it’s unfortunate the group couldn’t stay together (shout out to Big Pooh), it’s good to hear him go beyond the raps that made him a force in the underground.  Be sure to pick up Charity Starts At Home, in stores now.
