Term 2

Campaign season may be over, but Eric Bellinger is still partying in the White House. Instead of signing trade agreements or appointing ambassadors, he’s unleashing velvety-smooth melodies upon his unsuspecting presidential cabinet. Combining balmy beats with lush harmonies, Eric has created a sonic teleporter to a private island on his latest EP, Eric B. For President: Term 2.

For an instant vacation, stream the project exclusively via MissInfo.TV after the break and be sure to purchase your copy when it’s officially released on iTunes tomorrow.

Knitting together varied sounds from bossa nova, dancehall, reggae, and other beach-friendly genres, Eric B. For President: Term 2 is a breezier version of Eric’s woozy, sensual brand of R&B. Featuring appearances from Wale, Victoria Monet, Elhae, and Tayla Parx, Term 2 is the perfect soundtrack to a romantic beachside getaway. Earlier this week, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter teased fans ahead of the project drop with “Make You Mine,” following the Wale-assisted “Treat Yourself.”

“The vibe for Term 2 is island-y, fit for a tropical vacation. When Obama left office, he went jet-skiing on vacation. I’m taking that approach to give a sense of relaxation and chill and positive vibes in light of the new presidency. It’s a dark time, so I wanted to take the opposite approach and make something light and fun. Term 1 had the hip-hop approach with the reference to Eric B and Rakim, but for this one, I wanted to go back to my R&B roots.”
