LeVelle’s “Promise To Love,” album was introduced to music lovers around the world with the release of singles, “Only If”, ” What Love Sounds Like” and the most recent release, “Work It Out.”
“Promise To Love” is an ode to real RnB, soul, and hints of bluegrass tinge getting back to love in everything we do, and in the relationships we hold. It’s a story through song and music; a true vibe that hits every aspect surrounding the word love.
While the entire project is great and pleasant and easy to listen to, tracks #6″Bring Back That Love,” track #8 “Always ft. After 7” and track #10 “There” are standouts.
“Bring Back That Love” showcases LeVelle’s signature vocals and is reminiscent of classic R&B with lyrics that transport you back to a time when, well, “life was better back then…”
“bring back that love/ it would mean so much to the world/ if we only just bring back that love/ I remember a time when everybody didn’t know your business / There was a time when you talked it out before you burned those bridges/ there was a time when you spoke to folk you didn’t know/ just a kind hello could turn someone day around/ when you told the DJ this is dedicated for your boo and he played it/ life was better back then/ can we bring back / bring back that love…/it would mean so much to the world if just back that love…”
Are we ever going to be able to return to love in the world? Wish we could get back to civility, respect, and humanity for each other. Love is desperately needed in the world.
“Promise to love is my promise to bring back that love, that traditional love. That respect for each other, letting everyone know that it’s ok to love again and show love, which is what the world could use more or,” mentions LeVelle.
“Always ft. After 7”, is such a sweet and tender love song and mood setter for sure. “There” with lyrics that only want to satisfy your lover and help you let go… you’re almost there. tastefully tells the story of lovemaking in the purest way without the explicit lyrics of ‘what’s going on’, he leaves it all to the imagination.
Promise To Love has something for everyone in the album to vibe out to, and, it is a great musical piece of work.
“Promise to Love” features guest appearances, production, and lyrics from some of today’s greatest culture contributors, including; Raheem DeVaughn, Anthony Hamilton, After 7, Zacardi Cortez, Damon Thomas, JayShawn Champion, and Sha Sha Jones.
