London - Higher
Considering it’s been nearly four years since London last graced our pages, a quick update is in order: in the interim, the Oakland-repping R&B singer parted ways with his label home, Universal Motown, and is now a free agent. On the personal tip, though, his spirits are soaring. Whereas November ‘09’s Flatline found the singer suffering from a debilitating case of heartbreak, this freshly-released single sees him spitting game to a new romantic prospect, offering to take her Higher than she’s ever been before. As London describes their itinerary, beatsmith Shonuff backs his easygoing, falsetto-laced vocals with an ear-pleasing mix of ringing keys and hi hat-heavy percussion. If you like what you’re hearing, stay tuned; Londonland currently lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes leading up to its arrival.
