For nearly 30 years Brian McKnight has been helping lovers set the mood, and if his latest single proves anything, it's that the R&B legend hasn't lost a thing!

"I Want U" isn't just a love song. It's smooth, sexy, introspective, and touches on the basic foundation of attraction -- something McKnight has always been able to do through his music. The singer says his latest album, Genesis, is a "new beginning of sorts." Musically, it's clear album features elements of McKnight that fans will be familiar with, coupled with touches of what may be in the star's future.

As for "I Want U," the video may seem a little strange with McKnight putting on a mask and entering a hotel room with other masked couples. However, the big reveal comes at the end of the video when we see who the masked woman actually is.
