    It’s a shame that true talent like this is over shadowed by “rappers” like migos + “singers” like trey songz. I pray the industry is swept clean so tru talent and and artistry can shine again.

      He will always be an unknown and Trey will always shine. Trey is a TRUE talent with looks and this cornball not so much. He will always be the kid in the NE movie. Lol

        He could sing circles around Trey’s yodelling goat-like vibrato.

        What talent, hun? Being shirtless for more than half the day isn’t a talent (I’m not complaining because Trey looks good af). Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Tremaine is not really a ‘master’ at anything. He has an ok singing voice that’s become the subject of jokes because he still doesn’t know how to control that Scooby Doo ass vibrato of his. In addition, dancing was never prerequisite to being an R&B star so I don’t fault him for not being able to but even so, he’s a weak performer with little to no stage presence. Does he write, produce or play any instruments? Chris Brown is trash and a mess of epic proportions but he’s more talented than Trey Songz.

      Wait one minute sis. One thing Trey has over Luke is good music. With the exception of “I Want You,” everything I’ve heard from Luke has been lackluster. He clearly has no identity as an artist…..Trey does.?

        Isn’t that a fake reality show to promote his album anyway? Who cares. If he’s a nobody, Luke James never existed.

    I’ve listened to the first album and there are a few standouts. His range and control is amazing, I think he just needs better material this go round.

    I don’t think he’s all that….I guess ugly is the new cute. People go crazy over him….I don’t see it….but I can say he does have a voice box on him!

    Great talent! Since Frank Gatson has been his mentor it would be dope to see Luke James & June’s Diary do a tour together

    • QueenCici February 22, 2017

      A flop and a group of neverbeens with no music. Who will go to that?

    • XYZ February 23, 2017

      Does June’s diary still exist? Already forgot bout them

  6. Elsie February 22, 2017

    Is that Sheree son Cairo, and isn’t he gay because slept with makael and that’s his ex boyfriend off of the Skorpion show, they said that

    • SMH February 22, 2017

      Lmao no he isn’t Sheree’s son.

  7. tru.insiderbiz February 22, 2017

    Luke, has an incredible voice, but he is definitely down low.
    which i cannot stand, be out n proud hasn’t hurt Frank
    then he can sing yes. but is he a star NO
    He is arrogant. doesn’t date black women
    mayor nO NO for someone trying to build a fanbase.
    not even light skin women straight white so u need to get him on the
    Nick Jonas blog to go get them white girls to buy his music.

    • Chileplease (the first and only bih) February 22, 2017

      He sure is lol…bi at least. Shame he can’t be himself. I know someone who used to mess with him chile

      • Elsie February 22, 2017

        Ummm yes makel off the Skorpion show, they were lovers

  8. Chileplease (the first and only bih) February 22, 2017

    Beautiful man. Hopefully he has better material this go round.

    • Chile Please!!! February 23, 2017

      Somebody always trying to put a spin on my screen name FOH!

  9. Jamie February 22, 2017

    It’s his content/style. It puts him in that neo-soul genre which has always been unsung because of its less mainstream apeal.

  10. Coolnesss February 23, 2017

    Luke has the makings of my kinda MAN. Tall, smooth chocolate skin, great smile and has an athletic build. I doesn’t hurt that he can sing his face off too. However, I do think his material is quite weak sans I Want You. His debut album was a bit of a letdown for me. It showed that just because you have a stunning voice with the vocal ability to match you can get away with subpar music. Hopefully, he bring it this time around and use this new-found attention he gained from the New Edition biopic to the best of his ability. Good luck Luke.

    I cannot wait for his new material. I disagree and in my opinion, his last cd was very good. It is a shame that he is overlooked with the water down music industry as other vocalist and real talent has suffered. At the end I hope that this music industry come full circle to what it used to be!

  12. Now at youfr best game way tuesidnz February 25, 2017

    Nice song
