RJD2 - Dame Fortune

Veteran producer RJD2 has announced the release of his sixth album, titledDame Fortune and arriving on March 25th on RJ’s Electrical Connections.

This first single is pretty Soulful thanks to a really swinging strings section and the smooth vocals of Jordan Brown. Speaking about new song “Peace Of What,” RJ says:

The best thing to say about this, is that its simply brilliant.
