One of our most talented 2018 ESSENCE Festival voices has teamed up an equally-as-talented fellow musician for a rendition of an R&B classic.

Music lovers are in for a treat this spring, as soul music crooners Ro James and BJ The Chicago Kid recently announced that they’ll be heading out on tour together this May. However, before they bring “The R&B Tour” live to a city near you, they’re giving everyone a little taste of what to expect.

Taking to social media on Thursday, the pair also announced the release of their cover of Jodeci’s 1991 hit single, “Come & Talk To Me.” While not everyone can take a classic make you fall in love with it all over again, these two certainly did the song justice….and then some. 

The joint tour announcement and cover collaboration come just 3 weeks after James released his latest EP, Smoke, which he plans to follow up with a second EP, Mirrors, before releasing his sophomore album later this year.

Take a listen to the remake in full, above, and then be sure to grab your tickets to see Ro James do what he does best at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
