Whenever I hear people discuss Theophilus London’s music its always a mixture of good and bad remarks. Some people aren’t fans of his aesthetic while others understand the angle that he is approaching at. With me, I always think back to my favorite project from Mr. London, and that is his I Want You mixtape. That project from start to finish was the definition of smooth.
It has been sometime since we last heard a new cohesive project from Theophilus, that is until today.
Yesterday, London released the follow up to his 2011 Lovers Holiday mixtape with Lovers Holiday II. The project is a fitting release considering today is Valentine’s Day, the ultimate lovers holiday. The project features Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) whose Cupid Deluxe project I really enjoyed and the Force MDs on the instant slow jam “Figure It Out.” Stream it below and download at his official website.
