Luke James

Luke James (aka Luke Boyd) injected some maturity into early-2010s contemporary R&B. As a child growing up in New Orleans, Louisiana, he was inspired while watching a Showtime at the Apollo contestant perform Donny Hathaway's version of Leon Russell's "A Song for You." While attending high school -- Frank Ocean was among his classmates -- he was part of a trio that opened for Brian McKnight. Following graduation, James moved to Los Angeles, entered the industry as a background singer for Tyrese, and formed a short-lived duo with Quinten "Q" Spears. Once Luke & Q split, following a deal with J Records and a 2006 single titled "My Turn," James gained major traction as a songwriter and background vocalist. He either wrote or co-wrote Tank's "I Hate U," Charlie Wilson's "Love, Love, Love," Britney Spears' "Kill the Lights," Chris Brown's "Crawl," and Justin Bieber's "That Should Be Me," among others. James eventually signed to Mercury and released his first single, "I Want You," in 2012. The song announced the arrival of an exceptionally skilled singer -- one who could hit a soaring falsetto like few other active vocalists. The song was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best R&B Performance, but lost to Usher's "Climax." James followed with two more singles in early 2013: "Make Love to Me" and "I.O.U." ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
