Three-time Grammy Nominated Recording Artist RAHEEMDEVAUGHN Releases Seventh Studio Album, “THE LOVE REUNION”
(New York, NY), Three-time Grammy Nominated and 2019 NAACP Outstanding Male Artist nominee, singer, songwriter, producer, actor and last but not least, philanthropic-pioneer, RAHEEM DEVAUGHN released his seventh studio album, “The Love Reunion“. The anticipated album released on June 28th, 2019, via the SRG/DMG label imprint.
“The Love Reunion” is led by the already Top 15 Billboard Chart hit single, “Just Right” (Testify), written by Raheem DeVaughn and produced by Tim Kelley (one half of the multi-award-winning producers, Tim & Bob). “Just Right is an infectious anthem composed to celebrate not only women of black and brown color but all women globally,” mentions Raheem.
“Although this is album number seven that we’re calling The Love Reunion,” says RAHEEM of his surprise second release in eight months, “it’s a part-two to Decade of a Love King, which just came out in October. I never stop making music; I’m still working on finding new ways to use my instrument, so the best way to do that is to stay in the studio…that’s my refuge, my therapy, and my sanity. [So] this Decade of a Love King trilogy has a lot of different tones and variations in it. When people go through albums six, seven, eight, and maybe nine and ten, they’re gonna be like `Wow, he gave us some real hardcore, new millennial R&B!’”
During our recent interview with the talented singer, he shared some thoughts on the new album, expressed his definition of love and spoke on today’s R&B music scene.
Why is this album so special to you?
It’s my seventh album. My first album came out actually on June 28th and fast forward through the energy of the universe, my seventh album released on the same day in 2019. This album, in my opinion, is one of my best bodies of work to date. I am better vocally, I am better at writing. I have found the Raheem Devaughn sound.
What are your thoughts about the style of R&B music being produced today compared to the 90s and early 00’s?
I love lots of the new generation that is making music and that are being successful with it, but to me, there is nothing like that good ole 90’s R&B vibe. I love to still be able to deliver that quality music for my fans that have been with me from the beginning and my new fans just learning about the Raheem Devaughn sound.
How do you define love?
Love is understanding, compassion and making sure you look out for one another.
