Ro James is hard at work on his sophomore album.
He noted his new album will consist of a “smorgasbord of sounds and feelings” that borrow from genres like “blues and rock n roll” along with a “lil hip hop.” James’ future full-length album will also include cues of reggae and gospel.
If his enticing ads for his new album weren’t enough, James excited his fans on Instagram with small talks about a mini tour with fellow crooner Luke James and a few unannounced musical homies.
Last year spring, Rated R&B caught up with James to discuss his untitled second album.
“ELDORADO was my first time going to the label saying, ‘I don’t want to do this, this is who I am’ and accepting their advice too, so we can create something timeless,” he said. “My next album is the same process — growing with people who now are a part of your trajectory, your growth and who you are. I had a concept from the jump but the thing is finding the sound that matches the concept. It was definitely harder but I enjoyed the process.”
