Back in September Eric Bellinger released his Eric B. and Rakim-inspired LP Eric B. For President: Term 1. Now the Grammy winning singer/songwriter is ready for his second term as she announced part tow of his EP series. Hitting stores on March 10th, Bellinger forsakes the club for island vibes on Eric B. For President: Term 2. Borrowing sounds from bossa nova, yacht rock, reggae, and other beach-friendly genres.
The vibe for Term 2 is island-y, fit for a tropical vacation. When Obama left office, he went jet-skiing on vacation. I’m taking that approach to give a sense of relaxation and chill and positive vibes in light of the new presidency. It’s a dark time, so I wanted to take the opposite approach and make something light and fun. Term 1 had the hip hop approach with the reference to Eric B and Rakim, but for this one, I wanted to go back to my RnB roots.” – explained Eric.
Along with announcing part 2 to his EP series, EB released his Wale assisted single, “Treat Yourself.” Check out the new song below. Eric’s Term 2 album is available for pre-order over at iTunes now.
