Charles Bradley’s Love Is ‘Strictly Reserved For You’

So, I just watched the video for Charles Bradley's new single, "Strictly Reserved For You," and it was quite the unexpected good time. Shame on me for not really taking notice of the "Screaming Eagle of Soul" before. This man is a soul-stirring, hip-shaking bundle of fun who needs to be heard. For about half of the video, he's pretty unassuming, sitting in a café with pain and anguish written all over his face, but once he loosened up, I couldn't be sure what he'd do next. By the time he burst through a set of bushes and cuddled with a grouping of flowers, I was smiling from ear to ear. He's just fun to watch, and you'll get your chance soon when he takes his show on the road starting on April 12th. If, like me, you watch "Strictly Reserved For You" and ache for more immediate satisfaction, you'll have to check out the album stream on RollingStone.com and support this late bloomer on Tuesday, April 2nd when he releases his sophomore album, Victim of Love. The album is said to have Mr. Bradley moving past heartache and pain and ready to embrace love and joy again. Hit the bounce to see when he's bringing his love to a venue near you.
