RAHEEM'S NEW ALBUM DROPS ON THE 15TH!
Unless you’ve been living on another planet for the last decade and you hate music, you know that new music drops ever Tuesday! On January 15, 2008, which just happens to be a Tuesday it’s a great day for soul music lovers. Why? Because my dude Raheem DeVaughn a.k.a The Neo-Soul Hippie is finally releasing his long-awaited second album “Love Behind the Melody!” I want to encourage you folks to show Raheem some deserved love by purchasing his new album. I’ve had a promo copy of his album (thanks to Raheem) for about a week now and I am really enjoying his new album. Even though I have a promo joint, I’m still buying his new album to show support. That’s what it’s all about though. Show support to the real artists that are making real music that you like or one day they may stop making music all together. Spend money to see them when they do concerts in your area. This is how they make most of their money to pay for their living expenses. I’m stepping down off of my soapbox now to speak on Mr. DeVaughn’s new album.
Let me start off by saying that if you are looking to hear the same exact sounds that you heard on his first album change your thinking. It has been a minute since Raheems debut, so he’s changed it up a little bit this time around. I think that’s a good thing though. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely the Raheem flavor that we’ve come to expect, but he seems more polished this time around. This is definitely a love & relationships themed album, and there are definitely some slow jam bangers that will have you hitting the rewind button if that’s your thing. One song that definitely has my ears buzzing outside of his hit single “Woman” is the track titled “Marathon” featuring Floetry! That’s a real banger, so I’m know you’ll be hearing that one real soon around these parts. This is a really dope album that I hope will finally puts Raheem on the map with the mainstream masses. Put your ears on this one for sure when you get the chance, if you truly love soul music.
