Raheem DeVaughn is showing lots of love to his fans by releasing remakes galore as the release date for his highly anticipated fifth studio album, Love, Sex, Passion, rapidly approaches. He's also showing mad love to the websites that have supported his music over the years, including SoulBounce! Today we are elated to be where Raheem chose to world premiere his latest cover song, his spin on Mary J. Blige's "Beautiful Ones," the fan favorite from the Queen of Hip Hop Soul's 1999 album, Mary.
The Love King does it again and does it well as he handles the "Beautiful Ones" with care and stays true to Mary's original. Raheem plays to his strengths, and his falsetto reigns supreme on his ad-libs on the bridge and outro. The new life that he breathes into this MJB album cut is beautiful indeed.
Be sure to check out the full album stream of Love, Sex, Passion on Pandora before the album is released and just in time for your Valentine's Day sessions this weekend. Love, Sex, Passion hits stores next week on Tuesday, February 17th, and it is available for pre-order on Amazon and Apple's iTunes. Don't miss seeing Raheem in concert this spring with Ledisi on The Intimate Truth Tour also featuring Leela James. Tickets can be purchased online now.
