In his Critique of Judgment, Immanuel Kant states that fine art is something to be appreciated in a pure and disinterested manner, free of sensuous desire. Clearly, the man wasn’t an R&B fan. For a second opinion, we turn to rising soul star Jaiden, whose latest record finds him teaming up with a special lady to create a Work of Art that’d make the 18th-century German philosopher flip his powdered wig. On this bedroom burner, the inaugural buzz single off his forthcoming full-length, beatsmith Caligraphist blends understated percussion with ambient synths as the NYC crooner describes how he and his girl “paint the colors of love,” exercising their sexual creativity on the canvas of their bed. If the steamy lyrical imagery Jaiden evokes over Cali’s delicate production isn’t enough to get you in the mood for a little, uh, art of your own,- then the singer’s radiant harmonies and expert falsetto should undoubtedly do the trick. Those craving more soulfully fresh new material from Jaiden should, as always, keep it locked; Cure Suite II has yet to receive a release date, but you’ll be first to know when that changes.
