Atlanta crooner Sean Baker may be new to the Booth, but on his debut feature that includes a cameo from lyrical artisan Killer Mike his polished vocals might be around for a while. Influenced by icons like Sam Cooke and Luther Vandross, Baker describes himself as a combination of both street and soul and his DJBooth debut Don’t Leave Me Lonely is just that. It’s soulful enough to bring about memories of R&B greats yet street enough to resonate among a younger audience. Producer Arkatech Beatz provides the track with enough trunk-rattling bass to wake the dead and if you weren’t given a heads up, Mike’s guest verse on Don’t Leave Me Lonely comes across as a bit of a shocker. It’s not often that the Southern rhymesayer appears on a R&B cut, but his brief contribution serves as a lyrical icing on the song’s cake. You can find more of the singer/songwriter’s enticing mix of street and soul on his This Love Sh*t Crazy mixtape, which was released on July 30.
