Robert Glasper Experiment have a lot of friends – the fancy singing kind.
On the heels of lead singles ”Calls” with Jill Scott and “I Stand Alone” featuring Common and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, the winners of this year’s Best R&B Album Grammy (for Black Radio) are offering up another track, “Somebody Else,” with guest U.K. songstress Emeli Sandé, which you can hear exclusively here.
The roll call for sequel Black Radio 2, due October 29 on Blue Note, includes Norah Jones, Snoop Dogg (apparently not in Lion mode), Lupe Fiasco, Luke James, Brandy, Jill Scott, Dwele, Marsha Ambrosius, Anthony Hamilton, Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (yep, that one. Hey Theo!).
Listen to Sandé get gently jazzy with RGX:
