Ro James Reveals Aunt Was Part Of Prince’s ‘New Power Generation’

Dismiss

 

Singer/songwriter Ro James is easily one of music’s newest and most exciting voices. At first glance the Preacher’s Kid is a mix between Lyfe Jennings, D’Angelo and Prince. And the music doesn’t stray far from those artists either. His debut album El Dorado details the ups and downs of a relationship and the steamy 13-track LP definitely takes you on a journey that you may not want to go down alone (I mean, have you heard Permission?)

He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his Panamanian background, his musical influences and reveals his unique connection to Prince.

How does his father (a Pastor) feel about his lyrics:

“My dad has actually been super supportive. He knows that I uh…yeah.”

On his unique connection to Prince:

“She was part of New Power Generation. She’s Rosie Gaines. I think that as an artist, you want to take a little break from everyone. I think that’s where she is.”

El Dorado is in stores everywhere May 27th and you can catch him on tour with Maxwell this summer.
