The Capricorn vocalist with a dynamic pen backed by imaginative production has returned. On Friday, September 22, the Atlanta-based musician best known as Langston Bleu began his “Luxury” with the release of his latest track. The Cheap Limousine and Rai-composed single takes listeners on a mid-tempo R&B, Pop and Funk-influenced audible experience while paying homage to Dem Franchize Boyz. The three-minute and four-second treat from the rising R&B singer is punctuated by the inventive bridge and outro that allows his vocal styling to take center stage.
“If you really want [some] love, you know it’s gon’ cost a fee,” he sings.
“One thing that I know about love is that love is a luxury.”
With wages going down and the number of large-scale layoffs going up, the average date is reportedly costing Americans more than $150. In short, Langston Bleu is right metaphorically and financially. Love is a luxury, nowadays. Fortunately, Langston Bleu has offered everyone a bop to nod their head in agreement.
Beyond the lyrics and production, “Luxury” arrives at a unique point in the maturation of R&B. Stars like Janelle Monae, Coco Jones and Victoria Monet are making their way around the country on sold-out tours. SZA continues to ascend to the top of the charts after grabbing her fifth number-one hit. Not to mention, Usher just secured the headlining spot at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. For anyone who said R&B is dying, they may want to retire that old a** conversation from the timeline. Yesterday’s stars? They’re thriving! Today’s stars? They’re thriving! Tomorrow’s stars? I’ll let Langston Bleu answer that question with his latest single below.
