5 SPOT: Ro James And Why His Album Is On Repeat
Ro James' ELDORADO (iTunes) could be one of the hottest R&B album of the year, and he doesn't need your "permission." Signed to ByStorm Entertainment / RCA Records, there's no doubt this R&B musician is turning up the heat. With producers Da Internz and Miykal Snoddy and co-writer Ryan Toby, ELDORADO is the perfect recipe for a solid project.
With the inclusion of synths and electronic beats, there’s no denying the electro-pop edge in “New Religion.” This track depicts the magnetic, addicting feelings of love.
If love is a sin, then perhaps we do need a “new religion.”
“Holy Water” is so uplifting it will have you screaming “Hallelujah!” In a world where everything feels so wrong, we are blinded by the bad and forget the blessings right under our noses... Including the ones we love the most -- That was his message. With a hint of airy church organs and a steady beat, this tune is, simply put, legit.
In “Everything,” the sound of the acoustic guitar and bass leaves off a fresh, airy vibe. Ro James’s pure voice reminds us of Musiq Soulchild, with a blend of funk, blues, and gospel.
“Permission” is sultry and steamy... It’ll certainly make you melt. This song is almost too hot; you’ll want to grab a glass of water. This tune has sounds that feel like a combination of 90’s and early 2000’s R&B. No doubt, the slow jam of the beat will send you back to the R. Kelly days of bumpin' and grindin'.
“Burn Slow” Ro James reveals a more mature side of him. No doubt, it's the perfect blend of old and alternative R&B, somewhere between Prince, Donnell Jones, and The Weekend. No doubt, this is one love-making song that will remind you of late nights and burning candles with your lover.
