Raheem DeVaughn Talks New Album & Finding Loophole To Leave Jive [Video]

Raheem DeVaughn chopped it up about what he’s got in the works during a recent sit-down with VladTV. The D.C. singer began by touching on his newest album, Love Sex Passion, describing it as “some of my best body of work to date.” Commenting on going with indie label eOne Music for his latest project, DeVaughn said it was an easy choice because they made the effort of traveling to D.C. during a snowstorm to check him out. While on the subject of labels, DeVaughn recounted how he was able to break his contract with Jive Records after being signed for over a decade. “I actually found a loophole…I was able to give them an ultimatum, and they weren’t able to meet it…hence I was able to be released from my contract,” he revealed before adding, “I don’t have any regrets being there, it was a great experience.” When asked how he was able to find a loophole, DeVaughn joked that he did what most artists don’t; he actually read the contract. Speaking further, the Grammy-nominated singer said his decision was motivated by the label not being willing to spend the necessary amount of money to promote his career.
