Phil Beaudreau is making a strong case as soul’s latest savior. The singer/producer has already started to make the rounds online, most notably on “Take It High” and a spot on Casey Veggies’ Life Changes mixtape. New original “This is Why,” however, is the real reason you need to remember his name. On the track, Beaudreau’s stunning voice shines over a vintage horn sample, which together feel like the perfect wedding between classic 70s soul and sleek modern-day pop-R&B. “This Is Why” also features verses from Grammy-winning artist/producer and frequent collaborator Dawaun Parker, lending some star power to the already-phenomenal track.
