RETURN OF THE TENDER LOVER is the 10th studio album by the poignant tunesmith, prolific hit maker/producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner


The album is filled with eight beautiful new original tracks of unapologetic R&B, intended to bring feel-good grooves back to music. Babyface plays on every track on the album including, although not limited to, his amazing and widely-praised guitar work.

11-time Grammy Award®-winning multi-platinum selling Kenny ‘BABYFACE’ Edmonds releases his new album ‘Return Of The Tender Lover’ December 4th with new single ‘We’ve Got Love’ available now.


‘Return Of The Tender Lover’ is BABYFACE’s tenth studio album and is his first solo album since ‘Playlist’ seven years ago. It is filled with eight new original tracks of R&B (including the single ‘We’ve Got Love’) and is intended to bring feel-good grooves back to music.


Earlier this year, BABYFACE shared the Best R&B Album Grammy Award® with multi-platinum 7-time Grammy Award®-winner Toni Braxton for the classic‘Love, Marriage & Divorce’, which was released February 2014.


BABYFACE reigns as one the most prolific and successful producers and songwriters in pop music history. Not only did he have a highly successful solo career defined by his run of consecutive multi-platinum landmark albums with Tender Lover (1989), For the Cool In You (1993) and The Day (1996), but also he has also worked with the biggest names in music.


He has produced, written and collaborated on an abundance of hits with artists ranging from Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and Boyz II Men, to Mariah Carey, Madonna, Eric Clapton, Mary J. Blige, John Mellencamp, Aretha Franklin, Fall Out Boy, P!nk, Beyoncé, Charlie Wilson, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisland, Colbie Caillat, Ariana Grande and many others.


BABYFACE has been responsible for over 125 Top 10 R&B and pop hits, 45 R&B #1 hits, and 51 Top 10 Pop hits (including 16 #1’s), which have generated cumulative single and album sales of more than 500 million units worldwide.


Away from the writing, BABYFACE also co-founded Atlanta’s LaFace Records in 1989 with L.A. Reid, nurturing the careers of megastars TLC, OutKast, Pink, Goodie Mob, Usher, and (starting in 1992) Toni Braxton.

BABYFACE is currently touring throughout December in the U.S. and most recently toured South Africa and will tour the UK in 2016.
