Charles Bradley - Victim Of Love [Full Album Stream] + "Strictly Reserved For You" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Last soulman standing Charles Bradley drops a video for his newest single "Strictly Reserved For You." If you haven't heard the tune, I envy your first listen but I'll just quote myself to give you an idea: "with it’s amazing horn-work, fuzzy guitar tones and a bassline for the ages, “Strictly” walks more in the footsteps of Dennis Coffey‘s most sophisticated sonic struts than we’ve heard before, a subtle contrast from other recent outings, which have leaned more towards a classic Memphis soul sound." Serious or frivolous, every video has a subliminal message in it somewhere and I would translate this one into words as: "you may have the empty diner/endless refill blues but it's nothing that throwing on an orange Evil Knievel jumpsuit and zebra-striped loafers can't cure."

Even better than that--if such a thing is possible?--CB's new LP Victim Of Love is dropping imminently and today we get the chance to stream the whole damn thing (via Rolling Stone)--listen below and scroll down to watch the video.
