Released at the stroke of midnight Friday (Aug. 17), the singer doesn’t hold back as he pleas for his lover in a silky falsetto. Produced and written by James, City High alum Ryan Toby, Zshakira Gray and Anthony Clemons, the single also holds a piece of R&B royalty. During a special listening session Thursday (Aug. 17) the singer shared with VIBE, the man behind the track’s alluring bass happens to Dylan Wiggins, a close relative to the legendary Raphael Saddiq.

He also played a few songs from his upcoming project JOY, which has the singer testing his impeccable vocal range and narrations love, relationships and self discovery.

A lot has changed over the years for the singer. After gaining a cult following in the R&B space with his mixtapes and self-titled album, James dived into acting earlier this year with his breakout role in the New Edition Story as Johnny Gil and landed a sexy cameo on Issa Rae’s Insecure. He’s also expected to appear on season two of FOX’s Star and the upcoming Biggie/Tupac crime series, Unsolved.
