It's been four years since the release of Brandon Williams' debut album XII. That stellar, star-studded collection from the multi-talented Detroiter properly introduced him to a worldwide audience and landed his music in heavy rotation. Instead of resting on his laurels, however, Brandon has been hard at work on his second album entitled The Love Factor, and he is back to debut the lead single from the project, "In Love" featuring Brian McKnight, Jr., in another SoulBounce exclusive world premiere.
Brandon Williams and Brian McKnight, Jr.'s "In Love" is the soundtrack to falling, being and staying in love. McKnight sounds like a man caught up in the rapture as he details all of the ways that love's taken over. "Like taking life's first breath, and finally being able to see / My heart's beating out of my chest, constantly, baby," he smoothly croons on the first verse before leading into the chorus, singing, "That's how it feels (that's how it feels), being in love with you." Not only did he pen lyrics from the heart, but Brian McKnight, Jr.'s voice is as warm as a summer rain and tender as a lullaby throughout "In Love" over instrumentation written and produced by Brandon Williams. Williams incorporates drums, piano, guitar and a 12-piece string section, including a harp, into the song's foundation to create a gorgeous work of art.
With the simply beautiful "In Love" serving as the first single from The Love Factor, we're confident that there'll be no sophomore slump from Brandon Williams. "In Love" will be available for purchase from iTunes and Apple Music and hit all digital streaming platforms at midnight tonight. In case you're wondering exactly when The Love Factor will be released, Brandon is keeping the date under wraps for the time being. Although he's being coy about when the album will drop, expect to be pleasantly surprised in the next few months and to fall in love with his music all over again.
