Long Live R&B: Tone Stith x 'Can We Talk'

"Can We Talk" will set the mood with tracks like "Birthday at Midnight" all the while keeping it fresh with "Get It Right".  Finish the 11 song album with "Miss California" and press replay.


While this is the second project from the 21-year-old artist, producer and song writer, Tone Stith isn't new to the game. Stith has already been credited with song writing and producing credits on Chris Brown's 'Royalty' using his talents for "Liquor" and "Make Love."

Produced by Houston-based PRBLM SLVRS, "Can We Talk" revives a lifeline that has been missing from the R&B sound waves.

Signed to Young Empire Music Group (YEMG) for more than a year, Stith packs a punch with his multi-faceted voice that is inspired by soul greats from the past. But it doesn't stop with his singing, Stith also exudes major confidence on the dance floor with his choreography, marking his place as an entertainment powerhouse.

But don't take our word for it, here's his 2016 ballad "Ooh Ahh (Thru The Door)" from his 'California 70' project and while the video takes place in California, his moves gravitate towards his audience smoother than the New Jersey shores where Tith grew up.



Be sure to hear more from the album after the jump below! "Can We Talk" drops at midnight on July 13. Preview the album and songs below.
