Soul Fixin'

Saadiq Jams With 'Love That Girl'

Try to imagine an impromptu jam session at the old Motown studios in Detroit with Smokey Robinson on lead vocals, Florence, Mary and Diana playing the role of background singers, The Funk Brothers serving up their trademark sound and a young Stevie Wonder watching from the sidelines. Raphael Saadiq's latest video for the Motown inspired 'Love That Girl' is reminiscent of a 1960's Motown jam session. Saadiq keeps it simple and takes you back to a time when music was music. The soul brother's upcoming release is a complete throwback to the beloved sound of the 60's and 70's, The Way I See It drops September 16. Treat yourself to a slice of vintage soul and let us know what you think.
