R&B artist Ro James surprises fans with the brand new 4-song EP, Smoke. Available at all digital service providers, the project is the first of two EP installments prior to the release of the Grammy-nominated singer’s sophomore album. The second installment, entitled Mirrors, is due out later this spring.
About the EP installments, Ro James says: “Smoke is just the intro into the fire. Mirrors is about reflection and self. I’ve been away for a bit recalibrating, growing and learning. I’m ready to share again. Decided to drop an EP and warm it up a little while I finish off the album. Smoke & Mirrors.”
‘Smoke’ is a glimpse into Ro’s artistic growth and new experiences and features production from Soundz (Bryson Tiller, Justin Bieber, Wale), Andre Harris (Rae Sremmurd, Jill Scott, Yo Gotti), and Tricky Stewart (Frank Ocean, Beyoncé, Usher).
Earlier this month, James released ‘Lost My Mind,’ ft. Notorious B.I.G., which paid tribute to the late rapper on the anniversary of his death.
James’ debut album, Eldorado, featured the hit single ‘Permission,’ which has been streamed over 100 million times worldwide. The record earned him his first-ever Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance and spent 10 weeks at #1 on the Urban Adult Radio chart.
