You Should Know...Luke James

The only reason and I mean the ONLY reason I have not let Brian McKnight have it in these internet streets about that whole "adult mixtape" farce is because of my respect for his sons and my new favorite band BRKN RBTZ.  You know BGLU absolutely adores them.  I will say this however: one thing I do agree with Mr. McKnight about is that music is absolutely terrible and thoughtless nowadays, particularly R&B Music.  It is a mess.  Ironically posting (and eventually releasing) a song about a woman's genitalia and its umm...function...however is not the best way to draw attention to that but I get his point.  I guess.

So if you see a problem and complain about it, you'd probably do best to offer a solution, right?  If you've been following BGLU long enough, you know we try to hip you guys to new music.  I think it's time to step that up a bit on my end.  With that being said, let this be the first of many more frequent posts where I draw attention to what's right with today's music. Let's start with Luke James. 

Luke James- "I Want You"

Yes this song has been out for a while and unfortunately, I haven't posted it until now.  I've been swaying to it on my own and have admittedly fallen behind on my posting so please forgive me and indulge me like this is fairly new.  When I heard this song for the first time...well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here are a few thousand:

Hold up now...
Well sang fool!
He's awesome!

 That man is SANGIN'! By the way, you need this live acoustic version in your life too so here you go.

Luke James hails from New Orleans and has been a songwriter in the industry for quite some time, writing for Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Keri Hilson, and Chris Brown.  He was also signed to J Records as one half of the group Luke and Q. No release date for his upcoming EP "#Luke" but it looks like it's set to be out soon..  For more on Luke James, check out his website whoislukejames.com.

I thought #Luke came out last year? At least, I have a free mixtape that was entitled #Luke lol.

Isn't he amazing? I'm trying to convert people, but nobody's biting. Not yet. I'll keep working on 'em!
