New Music: Jake&Papa feat. Skeme – Gun Charge

Jake&Papa Gun Charge 500x500

Jake&Papa are fully loaded and playing a dangerous game in the bedroom on their new single “Gun Charge” featuring Skeme. The Los Angeles based R&B duo premiered the song from their ‘Athena’s Erotica‘ EP this past Easter Sunday, with DJ Skee on 102.7 KIIS FM.

“[The song is] inspired by the sweet seduction of a woman,” says Jake&Papa. “Her sex appeal is killer, seductive & arousing to the point where one can only be compared to a pistol off safety — and we are at war, sexually.”

“We’re playing Russian roulette with a fully loaded clip / Keep my finger on the trigger, once I got you to the top, blast off for a ni**a,” they sing on the metaphor heavy song.

Take a listen to the new single below. You can pick up their ‘Athena’s Erotica‘ EP on iTunes now.

Throwback Tuesday: After 7 – “Ready or Not” + Bonus: Milestone “I Care About You”

After 7 is a R&B group founded in 1987 by brothers Melvin and Kevon Edmonds, and Keith Mitchell. The Edmonds brothers are the siblings of popular pop and R&B singer-songwriter-producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds”.

“Ready or Not” was the third single from their 1987 eponymous debut album. In 1990, the song became the first No. 1 R&B single for the group. It was also the group’s first top ten pop single, peaking at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both Melvin and Kevon’s amazing vocals are notable in this song, however Kevon’s amazing tenor and range take this classic over the edge. Enjoy the video above.

***Bonus: Milestone “I Care About You”

In 1997 some of the best voices in R&B history, Kevon and Melvin Edmonds, their brother Babyface, and K-Ci and JoJo Hailey (of Jodeci and the duo K-Ci and JoJo) formed the fictional group Milestone for the movie Soul Food and its soundtrack. “I Care About You” was a No. 1 R&B single by the group. Each member’s vocals made for a perfect R&B collaboration, but again Kevon Edmond’s perfect tenor made the song. K-Ci Hailey’s gritty soul also “brought the house down”.
