Louis York, the duo composed of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, has joined forces with Anthony Hamilton for their new single “Alone A Lot.”
The sentimental ballad captures the essence of being down on love, to the point of giving up on it, until a special person walks into your life. The stirring lyrics, beautifully sung by Kelly and Hamilton, are accompanied by a delicate guitar harmonizing with the piano and the gentle shimmers of a soft tambourine.
“I’ve been traveling so long / I’m just searching for a heart to call home / Sleeping in a bed that’s cold / Tired of eating all my dinners alone,” Kelly sings in the first verse.
Hamilton enters in verse two, singing, “Been a lot of folks that come and gone / Full of memories of who’ve done me wrong. Then you start to feel like you’re on your own / Until somebody finds you / Open your eyes to a new road.”
“Alone A Lot” is a beautiful reminder that even in the depths of loneliness, there’s always a glimmer of hope.

“Alone A Lot” follows Louis York’s collaboration with Jessie J, “Heaven Bound.”
“We have a BIG history of hit-making with Jessie J,” Louis York told Rated R&B. “We have topped the charts, broken records and made the world dance several times over. Louis York paired with one of the best singers on the planet is a force of nature. ‘Heaven Bound’ shows the best of all three of us. This duet is from the heart. It’s soulful, anthemic and undeniable.”
“Heaven Bound” and “Alone A Lot” will appear on Louis York’s sophomore album, Songs With Friends. The impending album will follow their 2019 debut LP, American Griots.
