Back To Love

Album: Peach Moon (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This dreamy ode to a girl finds Valentino eschewing recording contemporary beat-driven songs about sex for a jazzy tune filled with more affectionate lyrical content.

    "Good night to you my soul flower
    I hope you wish upon my star."

    Valentino explained to The Drop.FM: "We all love sex, but we all talk about that. Let somebody be that one to step out and do something different or say something different, so that's how I feel."

    Valentino added that releasing music on his own label, Blu Kolla Dreams, has given him more creative freedom in making the music he wants. "I've always been a situation where I had to chase a hit record or a song," he explained. "I've always had to go into the studio make a song that's a certain tempo so that the record company can work that song easily."
