[May 21, 2020] Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Ro James releases a new track “Too Much” featuring Grammy-award winning artist and label mate, Miguel. The track will appear on James’ forthcoming sophomore album MANTIC which is due out via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records on May 29th. Click HERE to listen.
Last week, James released “Plan B” ft. Brandy which was met with great critical praise. Variety explains “the soulful jam is one of [Ro’s] strongest tracks to date” including it in their “Top 5 Songs of the Week” while UpRoxx also included the track in their “Best New R&B Songs From This Week That You Need To Hear.”
At 15 tracks the album will include features from some of the most notable names in R&B including Miguel, Brandy and Masego. MANTIC will also feature previously released tracks “Last Time” which has over 10 million streams and video views worldwide and “Touchy Feely” which Noisey included on their “18 R&B Songs That Make Up for This Unbearable Year List” and explains: “[Ro James] has a penchant for sensual songs, and his sophomore album is shaping up to be just as sexy as his last.”
MANTIC also sees James teaming up with frequent collaborators including producers DJ Camper, Salaam Remi, songwriter Verse Simmons and producer Soundz, the same team behind James’ Grammy-nominated, RIAA certified platinum single “Permission,” which is from his critically-acclaimed debut album ELDORADO.
Ro James on what MANTIC means to him and the inspiration for the album: “The music I create evokes a feeling of romance, but I wanted to dissect that word and break it down by taking the ‘ro’ out of it. MANTIC refers to divination and prophecy—seeking knowledge of the future through supernatural means. Speaking things into existence and living forward, having faith in where you’re supposed to be and where you’re going.”

About Ro James
Born in Stuttgart, Germany to a military father turned preacher, Ro James found himself moving around for most of his childhood. From Indiana, California, Hawaii, Oklahoma to the place he now calls home, Jamaica, Queens, music was always in the forefront of James’ life. His musical inspirations come from the sounds of Johnny Cash, Prince, Tupac, Jodeci, and more.
His debut single “Permission” was released in late 2015 and catapulted his career to the next level with the track topping the Urban Adult radio chart for 10 weeks consecutively. “Permission” was the lead single from James’ debut album ELDORADO. Released in May 2016, James’ debut album ELDORADO entered the charts at #3 on The Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #8 on the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Chart. The success of the album earned him nominations for Best R&B Performance at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards Best New Artist at the 2017 NAACP Image Awards and Best New R&B Artist at the 2017 iHeart Radio Music Awards. He delivered an electrifying performance the track along with “Already Knew That” from ELDORADO on the Soul Train Awards stage.
James embarked on his own headlining North American “XIX” Tour with dates in Europe in Amsterdam, London and Paris in early 2017. He appears on Luke James’ latest single released last month “go girl” with BJ The Chicago Kid, which they performed together on the Soul Train Awards late last year. He’s now readying his sophomore album, MANTIC which is set for release on May 29th via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.
