Though he’s consistently created hits for some of music’s hottest names, including Luther Vandross (“Take You Out”), Angie Stone (“Brother”), Brandy (“Talk About Our Love”), and Fantasia (“Baby Mama”), Lilly’s sound doesn’t stay the same; it varies from track to track, ensuring that he will only continue to hone his skills and grow as an artist.
