First Impressions: Raheem Devaughn Waves The Haters Off

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Catching my ears up to Raheem Devaughn's 2010 single entry, which is energetically getting me in the mood to conquer the Senior-itis Blues as I head back to the college campus next week. Last week, Rah dropped his new single, "I Don't Care" on his Twitter, and it's a hand-clapping, horn peppered funk fest that addresses how Rah is not letting the haters get in the way of the love for his lady. Oddly, the song reminds me of Robin Thicke's "Magic" possibly due to the phrasing and layout of the track...though this track is produced by Ne-Yo.

After having mixtapes and loose tracks (see "Re-Invented Sex" and "Bulletproof") its quite refreshing to hear something concrete coming from The Love & War Masterpiece, Rah's upcoming third effort. Though Raheem DeVaughn isn't on heavy rotation with me (oops upside my head), I'm glad that there are still some men keeping the soul movement alive with velvety vocals and a sense of class. So listen and then download free courtesy of Rah. The Love & War Masterpiece is due in stores this February.
