Raphael Saadiq


Raphael Saadiq

Raphael Saadiq could be best described as a contemporary neo- rhythm & blues all-round artist (singer, musician, record producer). He is apparently an ancestor of original or as we say today “old school”, rhythm & blues from the 60s & 70s who retains the legacy of that musical era and is living out his own legacy today.

Raphael Saadiq, American singer-songwriter.

Saadiq is probably best known for when he was in multiplantinum renowned 80s rhythm & blues group Tony! Toni! Toné! His solo work pretty much involved the release of three solo albums plus the production of songs of award-winning artists such as D’Angelo, TLC, Mary J Blige, John Legend and Joss Stone, just to name a few. He has also collaborated with renowned artists such as Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder and Q-Tip. Perhaps he is not what the media hungers for, but he is definitely worth the recognition of the amazing work he has done. I love him!

Check out the video below for his song 100-Yard Dash, if you are a late-reaction-kind-of-person like me at times. I heard this song on Ellen. If this song doesn’t make you wanna get up and dance or at least head-bop, there’s something seriously wrong with you 😉

Bon apetito!
