GRAMMY nominated soul singer Raheem DeVaughn has a new album “Love Behind the Melody” out now on Zomba/Jive. Fusicology got to ask Raheem a few questions in our exclusive interview.

FUSICOLOGY: Tell us about the Prince Tribute Event that went down in DC on January 5th.

RAHEEM DEVAUGHN: I was the special surprise guest and sang “Adore” and “Kiss”. It was an event put on my MN8 and Marc Powers that had Martin Luther, Eric Roberson and my man W Ellington Felton performing – it was great!

FUS: Tell us about this new album.

RD: I am excited and glad that it’s out!

FUS: What do you think of the State of the Industry?

RD: I will continue to keep doing it like I have been from Day One – no one can sell you like you can.

FUS: You have a major tour coming up right?

RD: Yes, with Jill Scott starting February 5th. A full on US 30-city tour. Then I will continue onward worldwide.

FUS: Who do you want to work with that you have not had the pleasure to do so with yet?

RD: Sade, Dr. Dre, Dave Matthews Band…there are many people I’d love to work with.

FUS: Are you going to perform during GRAMMY weekend?
