The Delfonics, Al Green, The Stylistics, The Four Tops, and Sam Cooke are cited as inspiration for the project. “Once I got into this, I got almost stuck ‘in character,’ the character of the old school singers I listened to. But I’m happy and excited it’s done. I put in a lot of work and I feel like I achieved something really great” says Saadiq.
