The 39th studio album from the late R&B/soul/rock icon. Hit n Run Phase Two is the follow up album to the fan favorite Hit n Run Phase One, which was released in September 2015. A few of the tracks – ‘Baltimore’, ‘RocknRoll Love Affiar’, ‘Xtraloveable’, ‘Groovy Potential’, and ‘Screwdriver’ – had been released online over the past few years in different forms but have been overdubbed or reworked for this release.
