Raheem DeVaughn - Love Behind the Melody

2008-07-16 06:43
This is not some common R&B you hear consistently on your favorite radio stations. This Grammy-nominated singer brings soul back to R&B with tracks like "Woman" where Mr. DeVaughn praises all the women out there. Yes, it's very refreshing to know that there are brothers out there who still think of women as the best thing that has ever happened to the world.

He also shuts the club down and gets down to "Friday"'s fusion of soul, R&B and hip hop. It's a feel good number that is sure to get you jamming and singing along. Actually, the album has a song for every mood you might be in. "Marathon" (featuring Floetry) is a track designed for those 'special' romantic moments with your loved one. And for the broken hearts "Try Again" is the ideal soutrack to help you win back your true love.

If you're an R&B lover, do yourself a favor and get yourself a copy of Love Behind the Melody. You won't regret it.
