Unknown Artists: Jorge "G-Man" Corante Songs (EP) (199x)

Unreleased top level productions from Jorge "G-Man" Corante, probably best known for his remix of Janet Jackson's "Twenty Foreplay" and to a slightly lesser degree his work on Adina Howard's 1995 album "Do You Wanna Ride?" Approximate titles had to be given for the tracks but all appear to check out in the ASCAP repertoire as being correct. Of the four songs included, only one was ever released and was recorded by Ivan Matias for his album "Sweetest Hangover" in the late 90s. The writer of the track was Andrea Martin (listed here by her professional name Andrea Monica Martin), who had also penned hits for Monica, En Vogue and many more popular artists before releasing her own work "The Best Of Me" in 1998. Here she is singing the original demo along with a further track, the smooth "Hearts Don't Lie." (Her vocals on both are pitched slightly lower but it is definitely her singing.) The two final productions are sung by an unidentified male singer who I believe may be Nick Shay Dibenedetto. In the 90s, he wrote songs for Immature and Blackgirl, and did backing vox for Damion Hall.
