Luke James Is Ready To Make Love On Free Mixtape
Right before Christmas Luke James unveiled his free mixtape '#LUKE' which should help you get through these cold & lonely nights. The first single "I Want You" is also included and shows his lovely Prince-like voice. You could say this is R&B in its purest form wrapped in a modern mixtape flavor.
Rest asured that this is a pre-cursor what is yet to come in 2012. His debut full length album 'Made to Love' is expected early next year. His mixtape is available for your streaming pleasure at Datpiff.
His music is being praised into the heaven but are they right? There might be a slight influence by hip-hop but I do not hear it. He does have outstanding R&B vocals although I have not heard him perform live. I have to admit that this is R&B in its purest form as it was a decade ago.
