Anthony Hamilton is the perfect headliner for the revived Budweiser Superfest, which is once again serving as a showcase of urban music after more than a decade's absence. That's because during his career, Hamilton has found great success reinvigorating vintage sounds — while keeping his tunes fresh enough to avoid the neo-soul tag that became a trap for many of his '90s/'00s contemporaries. Exhibit A: His fourth album, 2008's The Point of It All, topped the urban charts without abandoning the classic Southern R&B on which the Carolina-born crooner was weaned.
