Robert Glasper Releases The First Single Off His Upcoming Album 'Black Radio 2'

Last year was a major year for Robert Glasper. The Houston, Texas-bred musician released his critically acclaimed, Grammy-winning album Black Radio, garnered a Soul Train Award for Best Traditional Jazz Artist, and became the third artist to join Centric’s breakthrough music campaign, Centric Certified. Not one to rest on his laurels, Glasper is set to release Black Radio 2 this fall, and is already dropping new music. The album’s first single, “Calls” featuring Jill Scott, is a positive sign that the music on this installment will successfully expound on the ground covered on its predecessor.  

Scott, who’s powerhouse vocals lend themselves to jazz influences seamlessly, coos on the track as she sings about her dependable, reliable lover: “You always answer my calls, when I call, you come.”

Glasper’s Black Radio 2 will be released October 29, and will feature additional appearances from Brandy, Anthony Hamilton, Snoop Dogg, Common, Dwele, and fellow Centric Certified artists Emeli Sandé and Marsha Ambrosius.
