Daniel Caesar delivers his R&B album CASE STUDY 01. The album’s first single is “Love Again,” a duet with the golden-voiced R&B veteran Brandy. Leading with this track is a savvy move on Caesar’s part, since duets played a crucial role in his mainstream breakthrough. The singer’s first hit was “Get You,” a tranquil back-and-forth with Kali Uchis
Just a few months ago, Caesar found himself at the center of controversy after a video circulated online where he called out black people for being mean to his friend YesJulz who had been accused of being a “culture vulture.” Many didn’t appreciate his comments, but he soon issued an apology. “I expressed my opinion in a very pretentious…I was talking down to you guys,” he said. “I apologize for how I expressed my idea because that is where I went wrong. I believe in what I said. A real man can admit when he’s wrong. I can admit when I’m wrong.”
Caesar brings in a handful of features with some recognizable names including Brandy, Pharrell Williams, Sean Leon, Jacob Collier, and John Mayer.
