This one is going to be short and sweet. My album of the month this month is Eldorado by Ro James. A little backstory on Ro, he’s a 24 year old singer. Eldorado is his debut album under a major record label. He’s written songs for Miguel and is heavily influenced by Prince which was evident on some of his songs. I remember listening to the album thinking on certain songs, “this sounds like some Prince shit!”, which is perfectly fine with me, I love me some PRINCE!! Eldorado was released in May 2016. It’s taken me awhile to get around to it but I’m glad I finally got a chance to listen.
I would have never guessed that he is only 24. His songs sound more mature. My standards have been ruined by the current state of R&B. However, Ro James is a breath of fresh air. He sings about loving a woman, confusion, pain, hurt, and (of course) sex. I really enjoy the vibe of his album. My favorite song is actually the single from the album, Permission.
If you haven’t listened yet, be sure to check it out when you get some free time. Until next time!!
