Oakland stand up! The East Bay native we call Raphael Saadiq came a long way from Tony! Toni! Toné! and Lucy Pearl to drop his fourth LP entitled The Way I See It featuring Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder & Joss Stone. This release feels so throwback with influential sounds hinting at The Temptations, The Delfonics and The Stylistics. Even the album artwork adopts the same throwback appeal. Saadiq has six shows left in his tour US tour promoting this album. Check him out if he happens to be in your city.
