Andre Cruz & Chris Lujan
Can I Call You Rose?
We have West Coast soul supremo Chris Lujan to thank for taking our mind off all that's off kilter with the world right now and taking us on a musical journey through his various soul travellin' projects. His latest project has him cosying up with Andre Cruz for a very special covers LP entitled 'Heart Full Of Love'. This red hot forty-five is the first glimpse of that striking partnership.
"Andre Cruz & Chris Lujan are back with a killer double-sider of a 45. Can I Call You Rose (originally done by Thee Sacred Souls and one of the most listened to songs of 2020) is given the Rocksteady treatment as though it were always meant to be. After receiving the blessing from Thee Sacred Souls themselves, this new 45 is set to light up dancefloors across the globe. This song is about as well-known as could be on this new Souildies scene. And, the Rocksteady twist that was thrown into this one is sure to turn heads and have people asking, “What is this?!”, all while singing along to every word.
I Like The Way You Love Me is classic Brenton Wood. Suggested to Andre Cruz & Chris Lujan by J.M. Valle of Raza Del Soul, this is Sweet Soul at it’s finest. Baby making music. Tubular Bells and heavily-vibrato’d guitar flip this tune on it’s head, taking it out of it’s calypso/Caribbean origins and planting it directly into Soulsville.
Something old, something new. This is the first 45 from Andre Cruz & Chris Lujan’s upcoming “covers” album entitled “Heart Full Of Love”."
