First Listen: Roosevelt Baker knows that "We Belong Together"

(February 28, 2020) Roosevelt Baker is looking to bring love songs back to the forefront of R&B music. With his new single, “We Belong Together,” Baker is off to a strong start.  This song is a true slow jam and one that is drenched in emotion.  

The message is straight-forward, as the lyric states that “I’m not ready…ready to let go of you. I’m not ready…to see you with somebody new.” It is the urgency that Baker has in his vocal, coupled with an arrangement that echoes R&B royalty like Eric Benet and Kenny Lattimore, that makes the performance even more passionate. 

Originally from Florida but now residing in New York, Roosevelt Baker is a preacher’s kid who has used his Gospel roots effectively to craft a song that tells a story of love. Check out ”We Belong Together” and keep your eyes and ears open for more from this balladeer.
