VIP Guest: Luke James
Luke James is perhaps most known for his successful music career, where he draws on inspiration from both the past and present to create an R&B sound with the perfect blend of new and old soul. Luke is set to release a brand-new album, “to feel love/d” in Fall 2019, which can be read as a dual title: “to feel love” and “to feel loved,” embodying two difference perspectives for listeners, encouraging them to think, talk, feel and connect more. This marks Luke’s much-awaited return to music, having released his last single, “These Arms” in June 2018. Billboard exclusively premiered his newest single from the album, “go girl” ft. BJ The Chicago Kid and Ro James, which has taken the music streaming platforms by force, making the top of the R&B lists since its recent debut on October 25, 2019.
Throughout his career, Luke has also written songs for the likes of Justin Bieber, Britney Spears and Chris Brown. He has also performed alongside the late Prince and opened for Beyoncé during her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in 2013. In 2012, he received his first Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance for his hit song “I Want You” (from his first mixtape “#Luke”) and received his second Grammy nomination in 2015 for Best R&B Song for “Options” ft. Rick Ross (from his self-titled debut album “Luke James”). Raised by a single mother in New Orleans, LA, Luke was exposed to the rich musical heritage of the city at an early age, even taking up the saxophone for a number of years. As a child, he was heavily influenced by an array of artists, from Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin to Miles Davis and D’Angelo. It was after seeing D’Angelo in concert at age 11 that Luke decided on music as his career path.
