Charles Bradley Returns With "Strictly Reserved For You"
When you listen to to as much music as we do on day-to-day basis, it's easy to forget why you love it so much. This morning, when the new single "Strictly Reserved For You," penned by the R&B singer Charles Bradley slid across our desks, we were up for a reminder. The 64-year old "Screaming Eagle of Soul" also has his highly anticipated new album, Victim of Love, being released April 2 on Daptone Records. Check the stream below to start your morning off the on the right foot.
