Luke James: New Videos, a Mixtape, and a Grammy Nomination
Luke James is a star that continues to rise. Fresh off of the heels of his Grammy nomination in the category of “Best R&B Performance” for his song I Want You, he has released a new mixtape and a set of videos. The first video is for his official second single Make Love To Me, and it features a number of his celebrity friends including Kelly Rowland, Stacy Barthe, and Terry Ellis (of En Vogue). In the video, you find Luke James as the insatiable desire of all of the women in a club. But what is really the most seductive is the staging and camera work. Purchase it on iTunes here.
The second is for another sensual banger, Love Chile. from his mixtape “Whispers In The Dark”. The video is simple and short, catching Luke crooning in a dank alley set against a brick wall.
The mixtape is largely inspired by the 1990 Spike Lee film Mo’ Better Blues, as explicitly called out by Luke James’ song Mo’ Better Blues. Luke pulls from the jazz aesthetic, so he makes everything smooth (especially the music). You can stream (and download) the rest of the mixtape here.
Look out for his debut album “Made To Love” coming soon, and for a full write-up on Luke James, check The Music You Should Be Listening To: Luke James.
