When it comes to the R&B conversation, TDE’s SiR is not mentioned nearly enough. Not only does the Inglewood melodist boast one of the game’s smoothest voices, but his discography is quietly standing tall with quality releases like November and Dear Summer. And while recent singles “John Redcorn” and “Hair Down” have the masses coveting new SiR vibes, today the singer came through to hold it down for a worthwhile cause, the “Black Sounds Beautiful” campaign.

Opting to try his hand at the Isley Brothers’ classic “Footsteps In The Dark,” SiR provides his own take on the instantly-recognizable vibe. For the first forty seconds, he allows the band to set the tone, losing himself in the lush arrangement. The minute he opens his mouth to sing, it’s clear that SiR is dedicated to doing the track justice. Never overtly flashy, SiR shows impressive restraint as he glides over the beat, which would go on to pave the way for Ice Cube’s classic “Today Was A Good Day.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Are we really sure?
Can a love that lasted for so long still endure?
Do I really care? Hey, hey
Let’s talk about the distractions goin’ on elsewhere

[Chorus]
I keep hearin’ footsteps baby
In the dark, oh, in the dark
Why? I keep hearin’ footsteps baby
In the dark, oh, in the dark, ooh

[Verse 2]
My mind drifts now and then
Lookin’ down dark corridors and wonders what might have been
Something’s up ahead
Hey, should I keep this same direction or go back instead?

[Chorus]
I, I keep hearin’ footsteps baby
In the dark, oh, in the dark
Why? I keep hearin’ footsteps baby
In the dark, oh, in the dark, ooh

[Verse 3]
Honey, now let’s stop walkin’ around
When there’s love lost to be found
Oh, and you know I still care, I still care
What’s the sense in goin’ elsewhere?
