10 Oct SoulTrain.com Q&A – Rico Love
From Usher’s “There Goes My Baby” to Beyoncé’s “Sweet Dreams,” it’s clear as day that Rico Love has established himself as one of music’s greatest songwriters. However, that’s clearly not enough, thanks to a slow yet effective transition into the limelight. It all kicked off last year with the release of his EP last year Discrete Luxury. Featuring the tracks “They Don’t Know” and “B***hes Be Like,” the project, re-released this year with more tracks on iTunes, proved more than enough that Love had everything it takes as a solo artist. It also helps that he’s working overtime as owner of his label Division 1 through Interscope.
Speaking with SoulTrain.com, Rico Love discusses the success of Discrete Luxury,Division 1 artist Tiara Thomas, and what he thinks is his most slept on songwriting credit.
