Providing sensual music for that late night creep, Raheem DeVaughn drops his new single “Mr. Midnight,” and has no problem saying it how it is. “Mr. Midnight is tastefully sensual and was inspired by black love. I predict that it will be one of the sexiest songs of 2020,” DeVaughn said.
For over a decade, singer DeVaughn has been on a mission to create music that evokes change while maintaining the energy of love. “Mr. Midnight” follows the powerful and thought-provoking song “Marvin Used to Say,” and is from DeVaughn’s upcoming eighth album What A Time To Be In Love.
“I have always been part or the culture shift of Soul & R&B from a mixtape level to a mainstream industry level since the early 2000s so album number eight, What A Time To Be in Love will be no less then nostalgic vibes that not only speak to the consciousness and social climate on the world, but also to the lover in you. It’s a classic album,” DeVaughn said.
What A Time To Be In Love is produced entirely by The Colleagues and has DeVaughn fully embracing what he sees as his social responsibility: to inspire and encourage his listeners as they fight for justice and equality. While the album is defined as “movement music,” DeVaughn recognizes the importance of also nurturing and encouraging the emotional connections needed to sustain us during this fight.
