Radio . . . suckas never play him. In the case of Raphael Saadiq, whose 2008 LP The Way I See It was a brilliant piece of throwback soul, you would be hard pressed to hear any solo material from the talented singer-musician on the radio dial. But the former Tony! Toni! Toné crooner is returning with a new album in March titled Stone Rollin. The set's first single is "Radio," a doo-wop inspired, call-and-response track.
With the success of Grammy-nominated singer Cee Lo Green and his glittering pop-soul LP The Lady Killer, Saadiq should be able to find a home on adult-contemporary radio. Better yet, if he has a more catchier follow-up single, he could find himself on the pop charts.
