Bee Boy$oul's "BACK 2 LOVE" will be globally released on January 21st, 2022, via the New Era Soul/MrBawsaw Music & Media Group Under Exclusive License To SRG Records.
The album was led by the release of the tastefully sensual single, "Mr. Midnight" (The Remix). “MR. MIDNIGHT” was written by Raheem DeVaughn and produced by 812LABS Media Group and L'indecis and remixed by Bee Boy$oul.
"BACK 2 LOVE", is my "birth song"; "my introduction to the world at large as producer and songwriter. I was encouraged by Raheem DeVaughn to take the courageous steps to move beyond simply playing music from the background," mentions Bee Boy$oul. "The artists and musicians involved are individuals with whom I've had personal and/or professional relationships. The songs all bear my trademark blend of jazz, hip-hop, & r&b/soul...aka "Nu JuJu", he adds.
"The title, "Back 2 Love", references my journey back to the feelings and emotions of love for my craft and creative abilities, and is also my message to the world: We need to turn our hearts back to love; loving our romantic partners, loving our fellow man, loving ourselves." The album features appearances from Raheem DeVaughn, Dwele, The Hamiltones, Eric Roberson, Radio B, Fan Ran, Carmen Rodgers, Wes Felton, Vandell Andrew and Rah Brown.
One of the many highlights of "Back 2 Love", includes "Sugar Love" featuring The Hamiltones: "One of my personal favorites on the album," shares Bee. "Sugar Love" is a song that I co-wrote and produced. After meeting and forming a relationship with soulful trio, The Hamiltones, I decided to invite them to co-write and perform the record for this project. They are an undeniable singing force whose harmonies warm the ear as well as the heart.
Another highlight from the album is, "DRILY" featuring Radio B & Fan Ran: "DRILY" is my heartfelt dedication to my hometown, Richmond, VA; a city rich with culture and history which has birthed legends such as The Honorable L. Douglas Wilder (our nation's first Black Governor), Arthur Ashe (first Black man to win Wimbledon), singer/songwriter D'Angelo, emcee/writer/DJ Madd Skillz, and many others.
"Stay The Night" featuring Raheem DeVaughn: is another personal favorite of mine. The song is my ode to the spirit of the legendary Marvin Gaye. I produced the music and enlisted the soulful vocals of the Love King of R&B Raheem DeVaughn. Like Marvin [Gaye], Raheem has a sensual melodic voice which communicates the passion and intensity I felt was perfect for this record. This one is for the "grown folks".
