Who Is Luke James?

Beyonce knows. Universal Music know. And, very soon, you’ll know too. For, the industry buzz surrounding this New Orleans native shows no sign of slowing.

Despite his humble age, the singer-songwriter is no stranger to the industry. Indeed, some may remember his J Records jaunt as part of R&B duo Luke & Q (their debut ‘My Turn’ still garners many a play here at TGJ HQ).

And while that venture didn’t propel James to the heights his talent called for, it also didn’t quel his desire to succeed. As such, he picked up pen and began crafting hits for a bevy of music’s biggest names – including Chris Brown (‘Crawl’) and Britney Spears (‘Kill The Lights’).

True talent, as the saying goes, can’t but be discovered eventually – and it wasn’t long before James’ abilities caught the attention of a certain Frank Gatson. Creative force behind the likes of Beyonce, EnVogue, Tyrese and the King of Pop Michael Jackson, Gatson spent a year honing and refining James, ultimately managing him into a lucrative record deal with Island Def Jam/Universal (by way of producer Danja‘s New Age Rock Stars imprint).

Now ready to emerge from the shadows, James posits a compelling package. For, in an industry which increasingly favours image over substance, his pin-up looks and undeniable vocal ability sees him dually tick both boxes. It’s this combination which has also garnered him a fan in none other than Beyonce; who not only featured him prominently in her ‘Run The World’ visual, yet more over is an actual fan of his music.

So as to whet apetites for James’ forthcoming material, ‘HIT’ play on the clip above for a visual exclamation!

    He is handsome, and his voice is beautiful. It’s the first time I’m hearing it. Luke James got my full attention now. I like “Crawl” and “Kill The Lights.” He has great potential to be very succesful in this industry.

    He certainly has the looks but most importantly he also has the talent. I have a feeling he’ll eventually be the hottest thing on the scene.

    He has talent but seeing the video you posted I just see another black artist trying to launch himself by flaunting his abs.Usher really ruined it for everybody, didn’t he??Btw, I respect Beyonce for giving him a bit of spotlight.That was nice of her.

    That screen cap of the video…

    Looks STRAIGHT out of the book of Christina Milian’s “Dip It Low”

    The hair color, skinnier looking face/arm/body, gold/brown background…doesn’t look like BEY at all there!

    Good Voice, he needs to come out and show these other R&B dudes (See Chris Brown, Trey Songz, & Ne-yo at times) how it’s really done.

    “Kill the Lights” was a boring track, but that can be blamed mostly on Danja’s lackluster production. For Luke to stand out, Danja’s gonna need to pull out all the stops. I’d say Luke’s writing compares to James Fauntleroy’s (they’ve even worked together), so that’s not an issue.

    There are many layers to Luke James. He is an extremely talented crooner with a style and spirited voice comparable to the likes of Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke and Donny Hathaway. He is a soulful writer and has a stage presence we all have been waiting for. He will light up the world as he tours Europe and if Rihanna were a shrewd business woman she would book him on her tour! He is honest, good looking and doesn’t mind revealing his vulnerability. Congrats Luke! Frank Gatson picked another spectacular winner!

    Luke james was in a music video before the beyonce vid, it was christina milian’s dip it low film where 8 have to say he looked nuts. The way he was looking at christina milian was a little scary it looked like he really wanted to f*** the s*** out of her bad. Nice to see him looking normal in a video for a change.
