Nearly 29 years after Al B. Sure’s “Nite and Day” hit No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, the track is back courtesy of Sure’s biological son and “Star” actor Quincy.

“I didn’t want to devalue the beauty that is, was, and always will be in (the original),” Quincy tells Billboard. “I’m not trying to present this as the new ‘Nite and Day.’”

Quincy’s version, titled “I Can Tell You (Night & Day 2.0),” appears on Quincy’s new album, “This Is For You,” which was released on Valentine’s Day. Sure’s original spent three weeks atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in April and May of 1988.

Quincy — the adopted son of Sean “Puffy” Combs and godson of Quincy Jones — stars as Derek on the Fox TV series Star alongside Queen Latifah.

“Me and my dad, our communication level started to increase,” says Quincy, referring to his previous estrangement with Sure, and their eventual reconciliation. “I kind of surprised him with [the remake]. I didn’t talk to him about it like ‘This is what I wanna do.’ I just wanted to put my all into it and almost surprised him with it — like ‘Hey, let’s hang out. Let’s go in the studio, I want you to hear some stuff.’”

“It almost came as a surprise,” says Quincy, “so I got to experience a fun, crazy, emotional moment just because he didn’t even know what he was walking into. Thankfully it was of his liking. Because he is the creator of this record and obviously you don’t want to mess with something that you can’t put your all into and I definitely think we created something special. It makes sense for who I am and that being my father, there was no pressure at all. It was almost something that was supposed to happen.”

Quincy says he is currently wrapping up filming “Star” and hopes to shoot a film during the hiatus, as well as produce his first label album with Epic Records that will be released this summer. (“This Is For You” was released independently.)

  1. Ok so back then black girls were supporting Al, now becky is in the video of the remade song. Not feeling it. School your son! Oh wait, he’s hanging with QJ who taught him well.

  2. Thank you for the Love & Light #BlackAmericaWeb on our new Collaboration #iCanTellYou (Night & Day 2.0) available on @Spotify & @iTunes etc. It was amazing to work with my son on his artistic expression. I enjoyed switching positions and doing the backgrounds Vocs and additional production while @Quincy did the lead on a song that I wrote in 10th grade at Mt. Vernon Highschool. The Video coming soon!!!
