RL is a member of the record-setting R&B trio NEXT.

This iconic creator has been a quiet voice and hand behind some of the popular music we enjoy daily. He is the producer/writer of songs by musical icons that we all know from, Usher, Jamie Foxx, Luther Vandross, Lil Duval to other big names like Destiny’s Child, Big Pun, Tupac, Keith Sweat, and countless others.

Venturing out of the group, NEXT, RL launched his critically acclaimed album entitled RL “EMENTS” on J Records. He then went on to collaborate with Deborah Cox on her gold single “We Can’t Be Friends,” and was also part of the single for the movie Best Man Soundtrack -“Best Man” alongside Ginuwine, Tyrese, and Case.

RL is going harder than ever. He is currently in the studio working on his solo album entitled “THE PROCESSION” which he states will give a sexy and confident feel while telling the story of his journey, the ups, the downs, the good, the bad, and the ugly. The project will set a new standard of creative quality with the support of his production partner Brian B-Flat Cook. The singer/songwriter is also taking dates for his national and international tour to promote his new project. Now, ladies and gentlemen, if you couldn’t tell, with his incredible talent, focus, and determination, it is easy to see that he’s here to stay.
