Luke James Leans On ’90s R&B For ELLE’s ‘Song Association’

Luke James is probably the soul man of his generation. At the very least, he makes a good case to claim the title on his recent effort to feel love/d. With the album dropping at the end of last month, the charming singer is on the promotional trail. That means that he made time to become the latest artist to sit in ELLE's hot seat and play their Song Association game.

Though his time in the chair was seemingly filmed earlier than he's normally used to, the singer started off pretty strong, rattling off Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" a mere two seconds after receiving the word "dance." However, as to be expected, '90s R&B proved to be his saving grace in most cases. During the course of his round, he rattled off Brandy's "Brokenhearted," Dru Hill's "In My Bed," Tony Terry's "With You," Jesse Powell's "You" and — surprisingly — Mokenstef's "He's Mine" to score a few points. Of course, he also got a few easy points by singing a few of own his joints, including "Drip" and "These Arms."

Unfortunately, it seemed that the early hour was Luke's undoing. He failed to get a few softball selections like "heart" and "be" and became completely undone when asked for a lyric containing "without." Still, he soldiered on to get a decent score of 11 out of 15.

Watch Luke James make his way through this edition of Song Association (and even place his velvety voice on a few unexpected choices) below.
