PJ Morton taps his New Orleans Native Ledisi for “Baby I Love U,” which is a cover of Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack’s classic hit song. The duet, produced by Morton, sees the two coming together for a true rendition, capped with great vocal delivery.
Morton, who is also a keyboardist for Maroon 5, recently inked a new recording contract with YMCMB via Mack Maine’s new production company Soothe Your Soul.
Singersroom spoke with Morton recently and he told us how he linked with YMCMB. “A mutual friend of ours, who we all went to high school with, was a big fan of my music and was always following me and he started to work for Mack Maine and kind of just re-connected us,” says Morton about signing with the empire via Mack Main’s production company. “Mack Maine is a real music fan, he loves real music and live music and instrumentation. I just seemed like a perfect time to work together.”
Morton is currently working on a new studio album, in addition to touring.
