Ro James had been hinting for some time on his Instagram that new music was on the horizon and its finally here!
Raise your hand if you’re glad Ro James is back with new music!
It seems like its been forever since Ro James dropped his debut album ELDORADO in 2016. I think I lived with that album for a good 3 months nonstop and even now I still listen to it on a frequent basis. Smoke, James’ return to the R&B landscape, is a two-part EP with its counter part Mirrors set to drop later on this year. The EP is four tracks long with the last song featuring the one and only Notorious B.I.G. (a sample from “Big Poppa”).
- Outside the Box (How Bout That)
- Lost My Mind (feat. The Notorious B.I.G.)
Production credits: D.K The Punisher, Soundz, Matthew Cody, Braden Blair, Twnty47, Tricky Stewart & Salaam Remi
Ro James had this to say about Smoke and what fans can expect from him in the near future. “’Smoke’ is just the intro into the fire. ‘Mirrors’ is about reflection and self. I’ve been away for a bit recalibrating, growing and learning. I’m ready to share again. Decided to drop an EP and warm it up a little while I finish off the album. Smoke & Mirrors.”
This EP is REALLY good, ya’ll. There’s something about Ro’s music that just puts you in a vibe that you just never want to get out of. It most certainly satisfies fans like myself that wore out their ELDORADO album and have been patiently waiting for Ro James to release more music since last year.
