Three-time Grammy Award nominated 368 Music Group & Entertainment One recording artist Raheem DeVaughn is one of the most exciting R&B artists of the 21st century. His fifth studio album, Love, Sex, and Passion, released in February 2015, debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart and #2 on Billboard’s Independent Album chart. It continues to be propelled by radio hits “Queen” and “Temperature’s Rising”.

Leela James’s explosive 2015 saw her new album Fall For You reach #1 on the iTunes R&B chart, three top-15 singles highlighted by the smash hit “Set Me Free” (currently at #6 on the Urban AC charts), a starring role on TV One‘s R&B Divas LA, and a BET/Centric Awards win. She has often been compared to soul legends Etta James and Mavis Staples, and cites them alongside Aretha Franklin and Bobby Womack as primary influences. Her passionate and deeply emotional performances have connected her with fans worldwide. James’s most recent album Fall For You recently re-charted #1 on iTunes’ R&B chart following a critically acclaimed performance on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
