Just in time for summer, The “Voice” alumn and Brazilian-born Jonathas adds more heat to the sweltering temperatures in the form of The Foreigner II, which follows up his 2012 tape The Foreigner and Numb EP.
He makes it no secret that he’s aiming for greatness, as the tape’s intro is a sound bite of the famed “Our Deepest Fear” poem quoted from the movie Coach Carter. The ethereal groove “Let It Go” follows, and the steel drum-driven “Windin’” is sandwiched between the previously released “How I Do” and “Smokin.” He shouts out his home country of Brazil on “Just Travel The World,” and takes a page from LL Cool J’s “Doin It” on “Crazy Love,” one of the set’s many odes to adult playtime. “City of God” provides a spiritual break, which touches upon cherishing life despite its adversities.
Featuring guest spots from Chris Landry, Fitness, Lil Juan, Greezo, and Billionaire B., Jonathas’ The Foreigner II blends the smooth, with the hip, with the sexy, making it a fitting for soundtrack for your summer romance. Listen and download!
