Grammy nominated artist, Ruben Studdard has announced a new album, The Way I Remember, which will be released Oct. 27.
The new project serves as a follow up to 2018’s Ruben Sings Luther, a collection of Luther Vandross covers. After taking some time to regroup and find a new label home, the American Idol winner has returned with a 10-song album via SoNo Recording Group.
The title track, The Way I Remember It arrived shortly after Studdard signed his new record deal. Written and produced by Belewa Muhammad, the tender ballad is inspired by the classic Luther balladry.
“Working with Ruben, I just knew that we needed the right partnership, and with all the buzz that the SRG/ILS Group has been getting on making sure that legacy artists in the R&B space still had a voice, it was only right for us to meet with them and speak about Ruben joining the family,” Muhammad shared with Rated RnB.
Muhammad also landed a co-writing credit with Studdard’s second released track, W.I.F.E.
Studdard and his American Idol alum Clay Aiken are co-headlining Twenty The Tour. The joint tour runs through October and November, with final dates scheduled for January 2024. For more information, visit rubenandclay.com.
