Raphael Saadiq is gearing up for the release of his new album, ‘Jimmy Lee,’ which is due on August 23rd. The very personal project will be Saadiq’s first release in over eight years, and is in part inspired by his brother’s struggles with addiction.
The latest single from the album brings that theme to the forefront. “So Ready” is written from the perspective of an addict, shedding light on the issue while also offering insight into the heart of addiction. In the song’s press release, the artist shared:
“So Ready’ is from the addict’s perspective. They know they need to stop and have tried countless times, but can’t.”
