Lionel Richie Shifts For ‘Go’, Breaks Into Rap?


Lionel Richie Shifts For ‘Go’, Breaks Into Rap?

Lionel Richie is on the move with “Just Go,” the follow up to the former “Coming Home” singer’s Grammy-nominated album. “Lionel Richie 2009…What does he sound like? That’s the question I asked everyone,” says Richie when asked about his ‘new school’ line up of producers including The-Dream, Ne-Yo, Akon, Stargate and Johnta Austin. “Some of these guys don’t always necessarily deal with true melody. But we were committed to melody from beginning to end. They knew I wasn’t going to break into a rap,” Richie told Billboard. According to the singer, “Just Go” picks up where “Coming Home” left off, with Richie describing the forthcoming album as a “little more pop with a fabulous R&B foundation”. “Just Go” is slated for release Feb. 17 via Island.
