August 23rd is looking forward to being the most memorable day of 2019, pop queen Taylor swift is releasing an album, Drake got hit with a lawsuit over his “In My Feelings” and “Nice for what” songs and now musical icon Raphael Saadiq is also coming through with an album titled Jimmy Lee later tonight, his first in 8 years.
He calls on the expertise of rap guru Kendrick Lamar on one of the tracks which will no doubt be the most notable on the project titled “Rearview”, although Kendrick didn’t drop a verse but rather a singing-type of intro to set the play in motion.
“How can I change the world but can’t change myself? How can I please the world but not God himself? How can I see the world stuck in this box?”, Raphael Saadiq reminisces at some point on the song.
Listen to the project below and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
