Listen to Luke James’ New Single ‘Drip’

Luke James is back! The R&B vocalist has released his brand new song titled “Drip.” Produced by Dylan Wiggins, the old school R&B flavored track is James’ first single in three years.

“Feeling on your booty /But I’d rather feel your soul / Girl I know you ain’t Janet / But I like you in Control / Baby deal with your emotions / Dive into the ocean / Everything is open / You’re the one that chosen,” James sings.

At a recent listening session, James said “Drip” is a record that celebrates black women.

“Drip is very simple, very easy,” James told Vibe. “I want to celebrate women. I want to celebrate my women — black women. It’s just that time and we need more of that in the world.”

Peabo Bryson Shares New Song ‘Looking for Sade’

With less than a month before his new album Stand for Love is heard in full, Peabo Bryson releases a new song called “Looking for Sade.”

Backed by a stirring production, the R&B veteran cries out to a fantasy lover who has stolen his heart.

“You’re my hopes, my dreams / my everything, you’re apart of me,” he sings. “You’re the answer to my question / Is it love or just an obsession? / You’re so far away, I’m still looking for Sade.”

“Looking for Sade” follows Bryson’s previously released singles “All She Wants to Do Is Me,” and “Love Like Yours And Mine.” The latter love song has seen top five success on the Urban Adult Contemporary radio (No. 2) and Billboard Adult R&B Songs (No. 3) charts.

Stand for Love, crafted by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, will be available on August 3 via Perspective Records / Caroline.
