Rejoice! Luke James will be opening for Beyonce during the European leg of her Mrs. Carter tour!
Wait! Who is Luke James!? And why are we yelling!?
He’s the other guy — besides Miguel — who made your heart beat a little faster last year in the R&B Performance category for the 2013 Grammys. The N.A.R.S. Records/ Island Def Jam-signed singer is managed by Beyoncé”s own creative director/show director Frank Gatson Jr. and Greg Parks, so he already had that going for him, which would also help explain how he came to open a few of her Atlantic City shows last year.
But dude doesn’t even have a full-length album yet, so I’m curious how pre-mature this little spring run may be. Then again, James has penned tunes for Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Britney Spears, so he’s also used to royalty.
Spin this falsetto again on “I Want You,” “Make Love to Me” and “I.O.U.,” the latter out earlier this month. Think he’s a good match for Queen B?
