The time is now to really start getting familiar with Rationale, R&B Crooner on the Rise.
The Zimbabwe-born singer-songwriter has been planting seeds of alt-R&B greatness for over a year now, from the stunning “Something For Nothing” to everything included on his spectacular 2015 debut EP, Fuel To The Fire. And now, after months and months of building up some well-deserved hype, Rationale is finally ready to unleash a full body of work via his self-titled debut album on September 23 (Warner Bros).
The album’s announcement coincides with the unveiling of its lead single: “Palms,” a warm and silky alt-R&B gem all about that point in a relationship when you truly let your guard down. “I open up my palms to you/ So I can let you in/ This window to my soul/ That I wear on my skin/ open up my palms for you,” he recalls across the slick, stuttering production.
The inviting, sensual 80’s-influnced number makes for some major late night love makin’ music, and Rationale‘s soulful reassurances provide the the most powerful embraces throughout – An instant Rationale classic!
