Ro James - "Lisa" (Ft. Asher Roth) - Audio Download
New York based R&B talent Ro James teams up with “I Love College” rapper Asher Roth for his latest track, “Lisa,” produced by Blended Babies.
Taken from his new EP, Jack, the second of a three-part series titled Coke, Jack And Cadillacs, you can tell from the artwork alone – showing a suggestively posed Lisa Bonet – that the track is a sensual affair. Coupling a lo-fi drum beat and minimal bassline with some slow jamming keys and synth work, James flows smoothly over the slow-moving track, laying down falsetto refrains that create subtle yet infectious inflections.
Roth adds to James’ work by laying down a somewhat uncharacteristically seductive verse which sits perfectly on the glacial arrangement. Alongside explicit lyrics, “Lisa” also features some well-placed D’Angelo-style backing vocals and harmonies which combine to create a juiced up Prince sound. Take a listen below.
