New Music: Marsha Ambrosius – Luh Ya

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Marsha Ambrosius is celebrating her first a little early, with the brand new single, “Luh Ya.”

The Grammy-nominated songstress teamed up with producer Harmony Samuels for the heartwarming song, which she previously co-wrote with her fiancé Dez Billups. Last December, Marsha gave birth to their first child together, a baby girl named Nyla.

The uptempo track is a spring-appropriate twist on a light-hearted love song. “No matter what they say I’ll stay so true to you / Baby, whatever happens, ’til the end I’ll be so good to you / It ain’t a question if I love you / Because, I luh ya,” she sings.

Along with finishing up her currently untitled new album, Marsha is on tour with four-time-GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Eric Benet for their “M.E. Tour,” which runs through June 1.

On Thursday (May 4), Marsha appeared on “The Breakfast Club” for a new interview where she discussed the new single, motherhood, baby-making music, Floetry drama and more.

Eric Benét Covers Prince’s “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?” Live

Eric Benét is currently on the road touring North America along with Marsha Ambrosius on their joint “M.E. Tour.”

During his set at their recent stop in New Orleans, the R&B crooner took a break from his own classic material and treated the audience to a stellar rendition of Prince’s iconic song “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?.” The crowd cheered and sang along as Benét hit the outstanding falsetto notes.

The performance isn’t the only footage he has shared from their tour life though. During a visit to South Carolina radio station Old School 105. 3 for an interview, the two singers shared some personal stories of cutting songs for other artists and working with legends. Marsha talked about creating her Floetry hit song “Say Yes,” which she originally wrote for Ron Isley’s solo project, while Benét said after Earth, Wind & Fire turned down the song “I Wanna Be Loved” he kept it for himself.

Video: Marsha Ambrosius – Have You Ever


Here’s a nice surprise.

After releasing her rendition of “Have You Ever” from the tribute album to reggae legend Dennis Brown, We Remember Dennis Brown, back in March, Marsha Ambrosius now debuts a colorful, romantic visual for the cover song.

Exploring a record shop on a chill day, Marsha meets up with her lover and the two share some intimate moments in the store, and in a tropical setting.

Explaining her nostalgic tie to the “Crown Prince of Reggae,” Marsha said, “Dennis Brown and reggae music makes me reminisce, my fond memories of growing up in London when reggae music was and still is prominent…I can still smell the food my mother was cooking, I can hear the vacuum cleaner early hours on a Saturday morning, British pirate radio stations always playing The Crown Prince of Reggae!”

Listen: ThisisRnB Presents: Acoustic Sessions Vol. 1 (Piano Sessions)


Throughout the years that we’ve been running ThisisRnB, our original acoustic sessions series has been one of the most rewarding and enriching things that we’ve done. From the earliest developments of it and curating our process over the years, we couldn’t be more honored and proud of the content that has been created through these sessions.

While the videos live on our YouTube channel, we’ve always felt like it would be nice to do something with the audio recordings as well.

So, after revisiting the sessions, we’ve gathered and created playlists broken down into two simple styles–piano sessions and guitar sessions. We are currently releasing them online for free streaming as our gift to you!

Thank you all for watching and supporting us over the years. Thank you to all the artists who allowed us to help capture these amazing performances, along with all the publicists, managers, and record label associates who helped facilitate them. Thank you to all the engineers and studios as well, we couldn’t have done this without you.
