First Listen: Rahbi has found his "Weekend Lover"

(September 25, 2020) The year 2020 is a time for artists to address the serious social issues of the day. But it’s also a good time for some fun and sexy music. And Atlanta based soul man Rahbi gives us a 1980s era blue light in the basement slow jam with “Weekend Lover.”

The song’s title will connect with the children of the 1980s who recall the weekend fantasies that Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle, as well as the SOS Band, gave us. And looking at the video of “Weekend Lover” that comes with this First Listen, it’s clear that Rahbi also has a little bit of Prince in him. He loves the camera and the stage, and that love is requited.

Rahbi’s showmanship started at a very young age. His pastor grandfather had him singing in the church choir stand at a very young age, and thanks to the constant support his grandfather and parents, he was polished enough to catch the attention of L.A. Reid, who recruited him to be a member of the 1990s vocal group 4th Avenue. While that band never cut a record, Rahbi clearly knew that he had a future in the business, and he’s developed a following that includes some A-list talents like Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae.
