R&B singer RICO of daze alive music has pre-released the single ‘Paradise’ off his upcoming second full-length album.
RICO‘s first full-length album ‘The Slow Tape‘ was nominated for Best R&B/Soul Album and Song at the 13th Korean Music Awards, now he is about to release his second LP and has pre-released the first single off it.
While his first LP consisted of slow jams, in his new LP the singer is trying himself at a broader spectrum of genres. ‘Paradise‘ is the beginning of this attempt. RICO’s excellent voice creates a sexual atmosphere that meets veteran producer Mild Beats‘ neo soul/hiphop sounds. The result is a thick sweet groove that reminds of D’Angelo’s music.
The lyrics depict the contrasts of good and bad, and heaven and hell in the moment of intense love. They were co-written by Don Malik who participated in the album as main producer. The track was arranged by PAMAJAY who has worked with great R&B artists like Jinbo and Sumin before.
RICO’s second full-length album is made up of two parts and set for release in August. The songs can be heard in advance at daze alive’s 4th Anniversary Concert ‘D4’ on July 29.
