Ruben Studdard – “June 28 (I’m Single) – Full Song Stream

I have always found Ruben Studdard’s balladeering a little on the snoozy side.   The American Idol Season 2 winner’s voice is like buttah, but I just can’t get into that whole  “smooth R&B” thang.

That’s why I was super surprised listening to Ruben’s new single “June 28 (I’m Single) to find myself really digging it. This tune from the Season 2 Idol winner is pretty fantastic.

The song, which delves into the recent break-up of Ruben’s 2 year marriage is a throwback to those awesome soul jams of the 60s and 70s. Me likes.  It’s sorta like a male Amy Winehouse.  Very new/old soul.  I’m going to be downloading this one.

Here’s Ruben and Zuri’s wedding announcement. Notice the date of the blog post. Uh huh.

Ruben’s next album, “Letters From Birmingham” is set to come out in March.

Take a listen.
