Following the Grammy-nominated "Best R&B Album," The Love & War MasterPeace(2010), A Place Called Loveland, is sure to be a chart-topper with production offerings by top producers such as: Carvin and Ivan, Adonis, Mario Winans, Jay Fenix, and Dre King and a special songwriting credit by Ne-Yo.
The first single off of the new album was the vibrant, up-tempo, #1 Most Added single at Urban Radio, "Love Connection," produced by Carvin & Ivan.
"I released 'Love Connection' first because I thought it was a great way to re-introduce me, my sound and create a sonic connection between people," shares DeVaughn.
On the second and current single, "Ridiculous," Raheem teams up with Ne-Yo, who wrote "I Don't Care" on Raheem's 2010 album release. Top markets for early airplay include DeVaughn's hometown of Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit and New York City. The video for "Ridiculous" will premiere on Vevo on August 21st.
"I think Ne-Yo's songwriting ability is a blessing to R&B music," states Raheem. "Ridiculous" is a beautiful love song that speaks for the brother's who don't know how to express their emotions into words. Raheem promises, "I think it will be one of those records that you'll hear forever."
Other standout tracks include the sexy and provocative "Pink Crush Velvet," which Raheem likens to Bobby Brown's smooth classic hit, "Tenderoni."
"After you hear it a few times, you'll figure out what it's about," Raheem teases. "'Pink Crush Velvet' a very seductive and poetic song."
