The One is the sixth studio album by American R&B recording artist Eric Benét, released June 5, 2012 on Jordan House Records with distribution by EMI. It is the follow-up to Lost in Time (2010).

Background[edit]

The album is the follow-up to Benét's fifth studio album, Lost in Time (2010). The One marks a moment of positive transition in his life and lyrically speaks to the many new beginnings developing in his career and family. The One will also be the first album released on Benét’s newly formed record label Jordan House Records, which he created in partnership with EMI. “Real Love” was the first single off The One and was the #1 added song to Urban AC when shipped to radio in October 2011. This new single is a taste of what to expect on Benét’s new album, which he describes as a “very contemporary approach to old-school songwriting integrity”. His second single "Harriett Jones" released as a single on May 8, 2012....

Music[edit]

The One features his signature mid-70s soul groove, a variety of instruments from strings to horns to featured artists and even a duet with his first daughter India.
