From leading the multi-platinum R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné to working side by side with the likes of Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, John Legend, and Mary J. Blige, everyday should be a celebration of Raphael Saadiq. The very active R&B icon and producer became a sensation during the 1980’s. For almost 30 years, he continues to put the soul in Neo-Soul .
In 2008, Saadiq released his critically acclaimed album The Way I See It which featured artists like Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone, and Jay-Z. He’s a three time grammy nominee and the recipient of the iTunes Best Album of 2008 award. Saadiq went on to release his fourth studio album Stone Rollin’ in 2011. He has also been a contributing force to alternative R&B projects such as Miguel’s Wildheart and Solange’s A Seat At The Table.
