Birmingham R&B Singer Ricardo Williams returns with his latest single “Sorry”, following the success of his track Raindrops.
As you may have guessed from the undeniable soul in his voice, Ricardo’s professional singing career began with Gospel music. In addition to these Gospel roots, the singer also draws inspiration from artists such as Boyz II Men, Donnie Hathaway, H-Town, Dru Hill, Jodeci, Tank and Dave Hollister.
Given the obvious 90s influence It perhaps comes as no surprise that his songs retain that old school R&B feeling. Speaking on this Ricardo
“I think a lot of people try to recreate the songs of the past. I try to recreate the feelings of what I loved about those songs. I try to make my own melodies that bring out those feelings in people. When I write I want you to feel whatever emotion I am going through. I want it to feel personal. I want you to feel like you are in my life”.
The R&B singer’s warm signature harmonies made an appearance but it was the comparatively minimal instrumentation that caught my attention. The focus instead was shifted to Williams’ vocal production. The crisp selection of simple riffs and decorative adlibs danced across the booming bassline, alongside a well delivered heartfelt vocal.
What is the song about?
As its title may have indicated, “Sorry” is a 2020 style apology letter, in which Ricardo admits his wrongdoings and attempts to make amends for upon realising his mistakes.
The track marks the latest single taken from Ricardo’s upcoming EP, scheduled for release later this year, entitled ‘Love Tape 2’.
