In the R&B/Neo-Soul world, Raheem DeVaughn is a familiar name with a loyal following and a level of critical acclaim most singers can only dream of. DeVaughn didn’t make it this far by thinking inside the box and, true to form, the singer spends his latest single addressing topics many of his peers wouldn’t touch. Leaked in January but presented here in its finished form, the track finds Raheem showcasing his strong voice as he decries social irresponsibility and warns against, “...living like we’re Bulletproof.” Backed by Kenny ‘‘Dope’’ Gonzalez’ sweeping boardwork and topped off with a guest verse by “Mr.Feature” himself, Ludacris, this positive-minded cut will leave listeners ready to change the world for the better. Raheem’s hotly-anticipated third album, Love & War: The MasterPeace, still has yet to receive a solid release date, but, if Bulletproof is any indication of the project’s quality, it’ll be well worth the wait.
