First things first: Black Radio 2, the new album by the Robert Glasper Experiment, comes out next Tuesday, October 29th. It’s the follow up to the reigning Grammy R&B Album of the Year, Black Radio, and it features vocals from Jill Scott, Lalah Hathaway, and Patrick Stump (to name a few.)
“Let It Ride” is the latest track to be unveiled from the album, and it features those signature tasty keys from Glasper, as well as vocal work from Norah Jones, who would sound seductive even if she was singing about horse manure. I’ve been nursing a crush for a decade. Sorry, Norah.
The ketchup on top of this lyric video sandwich comes courtesy of a voice mail from Wayne Brady, who decides to freestyle rap. It’s hilarious.
And for those who don’t know, Wayne has significant singing skills. If you can cop his album Long Time Coming, do so. You will be very pleasantly surprised.
