Every R&B lover must know the legendary music of the singing group called DeBarge. And if you know DeBarge, then you know the silky smooth falsetto of Mr. El DeBarge. On this show, we welcome his son, El Debarge Jr aka ELove. Not only does the young man bare a resemblence to his handsome father, but he is coming to us with his first CD release. Yes ladies and gentlemen, there is a new generation of Debarge right here on Brunch on The Basement with JaVonne.
eLove aka El DeBarge Jr., namesake of the famous Motown singer El DeBarge, has released his first solo EP album on Industry Family Entertainment. The EP record is titled The Lion's Den and is a collection of original R&B and modern-soul tracks both written and performed by El DeBarge, Jr. The Lion's Den is an expertly executed, tastefully composed record that is sure to solidify young DeBarge as one of the year's most important up-and-coming R&B artists.
The Lion's Den EP is not his only recent activity, however, as he has also released a new video for his single, "Shawty R U OK." The video, like the track itself, as well as the entirety of DeBarge's material, showcases DeBarge's professional-yet-unpretentious demeanor. The music video, which is expertly directed by Will J. Smith, shows that El is obviously ready for the global arena of sound and stage performance. R&B fans, El DeBarge Jr. fans, and new listeners alike are encouraged to see the complete music video here (and on a myriad other music of websites worldwide):
