First Listen: Joe Leavy wants her to "Love Me 2 My Soul"

Share this article

    (March 31, 2022) Joe Leavy is still a hidden pleasure to many music fans around the world, but while the pleasure factor of his work is still sky high, the “hidden” part is thankfully going away. His last single, “Inside You” is a bona fide international hit and a SoulTracks Song of the Year nominee. And now his brand new song feels like it is going to be just as big.

    “Love Me 2 My Soul” is classic Joe Leavy: An midtempo that straddles the line between adult soul and contemporary jazz, with an irresistible hook and, of course, that instantly recognizable tenor voice upfront. Opening with a cool flute riff, the song settles into a steady groove as Mr. Leavy sings about a romantic evening between two lovers who are completely in tune.
