Raheem DeVaughn's Love Behind the Melody

Raheem DeVaughn has done it again, he has a made another classic musical masterpiece. The “Love Behind the Melody” is an irresistible soundtrack that will make even the most jaded person fall in love with the idea of being in love.

A 17- track CD, “Love Behind the Melody” explores the elation of being in love allowing each song to bring out the nostalgic feelings of love, the joy of a new love and the perils of falling in love. Raheem DeVaughn’s voice is soulful and reminiscence of fellow D.C. local, the late Marvin Gaye. His voice guides effortless over a Scott Storch beat on “Love Drug”, he pairs well with Big Boi from Outkast on “Energy” and his lead single, “Woman” is one of the best songs dedicated to females in decades.

Track after track, Raheem displays his love and affection for women, on “Marathon”, Raheem pairs with Floetry and it’s a match made in neo-soul heaven, track seven, “Mo’ Better” the R&B- hippie-neosoul- rockstar bares that being a woman who stands beside her man during the hard times not only makes him a better person but it makes being love even sweeter.

“Love Behind the Melody”, evokes emotion while listening to it, you’ll get giddy while singing along to “Butterflies”, you’ll wish that every man could have Raheem’s mindset on “She’s not You”, and if you ever had a love lost, you will definitely relate to “Empty”. The LP offers incredible production with lyrical content, beats that groove you and lyrics that move you.

In the era of teenyboppers, it is refreshing to have an adult voice that may possible be one of the best R&B albums of the year.
