Probably one of the biggest songs of the year, Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ gets cover treatment from the talented Luke James. Luke has made quite the name for himself in the past year or so, opening for Beyonce on her UK leg, and for this guy it’s only the beginning. This cover is fantastic, and one of my favorites that I have heard so far. Luke brings kind of a R&B flow to an already soulful song, and while no one can touch the vocal ability of Sam Smith, Luke definitely holds his own on this track.
Luke James is a talent from across the seas, who definitely deserves all kinds of praise for his vocals alone. James first caught my attention after his acoustic greatness of ‘I Want You‘, before you continue reading this, check that video out right now and you will appreciate this post a whole lot more. Anyway, back to the song ‘Oh God’, which falls right into the category of Luke James, Amazing. Sounding a bit like Frank Ocean at moments, which is never a bad thing. James brings the soulful and smooth R&B vocals that we have needed for some time. ‘Oh God’ is one of my favorite tracks from Luke James, and I hope to hear more from him soon!
