If anyone in the neo soul/future R&B scene is holding Prince’s ideals closest to their vest it’s Rahsaan Patterson, whose 2011 release Bleuphoria is an eclectic mix of organic digitalism and funky soul. In fact, one could easily argue it’s the most exciting release of his career, or at least the most fun, and it’s new single “Crazy (Baby)”, featuring a heavily-processed Faith Evans is further evidence of that. Eschewing the PPP-style gospel of lead single “Easier Said Than Done” and ‘80s-chic of “6AM”, “Crazy (Baby)” is a straight up party jam with a bounce that’s reminiscent of early ‘90s west coast hip-hop. The track is a little too late to be the summer jam it could have been, but definitely try to sneak it into your last barbecue’s playlist.
