Raphael Saadiq — the Grammy Award-winning musician, songwriter, and go-to collaborator/producer for some of the biggest names in R&B, including Solange, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, and D’Angelo — will release ‘Jimmy Lee’, his first album in eight years.. Jimmy Lee is a deeply personal, musically ambitious work inspired by his brother’s struggles with addiction that explores the razor’s edge people walk as they pursue pleasure that leads to pain — an incisive and empathetic work from a master at the peak of his art.
Jimmy Lee was self-produced by Raphael Saadiq and recorded at Blakeslee Recording Co. in North Hollywood. The album features contributions from Brook D’Leau, Kendrick Lamar, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
Saadiq has also been active as a producer, co-writing career-defining hits for D’Angelo (“Untitled (How Does It Feel)”) and Solange (“Cranes in the Sky”) and working with artists like Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder. Saadiq has been named to Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list and in 2018.
