“The lyrics fully describe how special one’s significant other is” – Ruben Studdard
After making his grand entrance on the American Idol stage in 2013, R&B singer Ruben Studdard won our hearts with his soulful love ballets and was the winner of the musical competition’s second season. 20 years later, Studdard is still a winner in music, in life, and in love, as he continues to live out his purpose of making music that inspires people to find love, stay in love, and embrace love with the release of his 8th studio album “The Way I Remember It” on October 27th.
Earlier this year, we were first introduced to the newly updated sound from Ruben Studdard, with the album title track, “The Way I Remember It.”
The Way I Remember it is a classic storytelling song. It describes the moment a man meets the woman that he plans to spend the rest of his life with. I think this song is beautifully written and produced and Mr. Belewa Muhammad did such an amazing job on it. I literally heard the song at 1:00pm and by 1:30pm, I was already recording it. I knew from the first listen that my core fan base would love this song, mentioned Studdard.
The album features 10 tracks of soul-filling amazing R&B music from the balladeer with two of the tracks previously released garnering massive support “W.I.F.E.” and “Masterpiece.”
Studdard shared that the single “Masterpiece” is a song that I instantly fell in love with in the studio, the lyrics fully describe how special one’s significant other is. It’s one of those, yes, that’s it songs.”
“Cause baby you’re a masterpiece, you don’t even need no filters/ Something like a centerpiece, a perfect figure/ And Michael Angelou couldn’t paint it, bet your last dollar Shakespeare couldn’t say it/ Strike a pose for the camera, smile and say cheese/ You’re a masterpiece to me,” he sings in the hook.
On YouTube, the single has already amassed thousands of views. “The legend Ruben, his voice is just splendid,” one fan commented. “Ruben is sounding good and looking good, much love. This song will be added to my playlist,” another fan wrote. Music fans from all over the world describe his latest hit as “real music, a classic, a masterpiece.”
Today, his impact on music culture is strong and relevant. With over 413K monthly listeners on Spotify, Studdard’s music is proof that R&B and real music still matter.
