One thing that really makes an R&B artist stand out is his or her voice, and many of the biggest stars out — from John Legend to Tony Braxton — have solidified successful careers much in part thanks to their signature vocals. Enter Antonio Ramsey, who immediately strikes listeners with his powerful baritone and self-proclaimed ‘Funk Trap’ sound. Currently, the Florida born-and-bred, Atlanta and Los Angeles-based singer is pushing his new single “All Night Long”, a funky, very grown-and-sexy cut that speaks of never-ending tryst with a willing companion. The song is also accompanied by a visual that sees Ramsey living out the lyrics in a desert motel.
Via email, Ramsey broke down the track’s creation:
As soon as I heard the guitar riff that plays the record in, it just felt sexy with that classic throwback-feel to it… Then of course the Hennessy and cranberry kicked in, giving us the melody “Imma give that girl this d***” and from there the song just fell into place [laughs]. The song is on the premise of how us as men should be upfront with a woman without sugar-coating what we want and how women should do the same.
Coming up in south Florida, I had no choice but to grow up a very straight forward type of person. I grew up listening to icons like James brown, Stevie Wonder & Jodeci! So me being able to put pieces of my life together to create Funk Trap music is a journey that I look forward to.
Enjoy “All Night Long” below and pick up the single via iTunes.
