Video: Ro James – Already Knew That


Right on time to jump off your weekend, Ro James drops off the party laced visual to “Already Knew That” – a funky cut from his debut album ELDORADO.

Described to Fader as a “swanky summer jam, something for the ride, BBQs, bedroom, or party,” the track gives you the feeling of a summer night filled with flirtatious actions. Opting to take the form of a party, the video shows James in rare form with guest appearances from Luke James, Leah Labelle, Wynter Gordan, Ryan Toby (co-writer of the track), and producers Nez & Rio.

Sure to get you in your zone, the visual is pretty much everything you thought it would be and more. But you already knew that.

Review: Ro James Releases Debut Album ‘ELDORADO’

Ro James Eldorado

We’ve been hooked on Ro James since he made us, ‘Pledge Allegiance‘ to his 2013 debut EP trilogy, ‘Coke,’ ‘Jack‘ and ‘Cadillacs. He’s kept our interest by periodically dropping new music, building our desire for his unique brand of smooth grit. Last year, he began teasing us by dropping pieces of his debut album, ELDORADO. Now, it’s time to grab a seat and enjoy the ride. Released via Mark Pitts’ ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records, ELDORADO is a raw exploration of intimacy, love and revelation. It features production by Soundz, Da Internz and Happy Perez among others. The NY based singer/songwriter’s diverse upbringing is reflected in his music as he fuses elements of hip-hop, R&B, rock, funk and even a bit of country.

On the opening track, “The Ride,” James glides over a sensual groove with futuristic synths and deep bass, sharing his love for elevation and herbal relaxation. His vocals lure you in, convincing you that you’re just as ready to take the ride as he is to give it. In between moans he sings, “Let’s go for a ride/Trust me you’ll be fine/I’ll pull up when you’re ready baby/I need you to drive me crazy/’Cuz I’ve been missing something lately.” On “Permission,” he is respectful with a sexy undertone as he asks to pleasure his lady. Reminiscent of that 90s R&B flow “Burn Slow,” is a scintillating joint that flexes James’ raunchy side, “I don’t need no breakfast/ ‘Less it’s you on my face.”

Listen: The Best of April – Top 12 Records

The Best-of-April-Image

Last month, we missed doing a monthly recap list, but it was mostly because March wasn’t too great with the singles that were released. However, April started off strong making up for it with the major comeback of Maxwell, and plenty more solid records from established stars and newcomers.

Chris Brown was pissing people off on social media, but on the music tip he surprised us all dropping the anticipated 2nd and 3rd star-studded remixes to his single “Back To Sleep.”

Rising artists like Ro James and Rush Davis had us in our feelings, T-Pain called out all the Instagram vixens who don’t even speak in their selfie vids, and Mary J slayed while reuniting with British hitmaker ROMANS.

Enough chat though, check out our list for The Best of April – Top 12 Records below!
