Bay Area, CA -
The King of R&B is back.
After a long hiatus, Devante is back with his sophomore full-length album, The Foundation. 14 songs, fully written, arranged, composed, recorded, mixed, mastered, engineered, and sung by himself, this is an album of complete and total artist expression, in the classic R&B styling of Devante himself. No other R&B artist in the music industry wears that many hats. This album is truly unique in more ways than one.
With modern R&B music being so permeated by bubble-gum pop and the same worn-out themes of lust and lasciviousness, it''s hard to imagine a modern R&B album that''s able to compete with these themes, without treading on those waters; but it has been accomplished. This is an album of true substance and depth, executed with the lyrical finesse of a legendary songwriter and with production that would make you swear the album was produced by a vast array of veteran producers.
The Foundation - So what exactly is The Foundation? The 23 year old explains, "This album is the foundation on which all great R&B music has been made. Contrary to what many may think, all music is not created equal. There is a formula to good songwriting and production, all of which I have implemented on this album. This album also represents the foundation on which I first built my career - Love, Life and Relationships. If you liked ''Ready or Not,'' this is the same formula, only kicked into way high gear."
Just Listen - There isn''t much need to talk about what he''s accomplished, from some of the most prestigious international songwriting nods or how he has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry; this isn''t about that. This is about one of the greatest R&B albums to come out in a very long time, and if you love R&B music, you would be doing yourself a dire injustice to not give ''The Foundation'' a thorough listen. Once you do, you''ll be thanking yourself that you did and becoming a part of R&B history.
