Luke James - Luke James

Posted one year ago
Tags: Luke James,

Having carved out his niche singing background vocals for Tyrese and penning records for the likes of Keri Hilson and Chris Brown, Luke James laid the foundations for his burgeoning solo career with acclaimed mixtapes #Luke and Whispers in the Dark.

Now, the New Orleans native builds on that sturdy foundation with the release of his self-titled major-label debut album. The Rick Ross-assisted "Options" and reader-approved follow-up single "Dancing in the Dark" serve as a taste of the entire body of work, while three additional bonus cuts will be included on the 12-track set's deluxe edition.

In addition to beats by James and his mentor, Danja, the LP packs production from The Alliance, Kadis & Sean and Salaam Remi.
