New York-based Japanese songstress Nao Yoshioka has just released her sensual lead single “I Love When” from her upcoming third album “The Truth” set to come out this Fall. The soul bearing R&B ballad was produced by Swizz Beatz protégé Tyrone “Musicman Ty” Johnson, who has previously worked with Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg. The singer adds about the song:
”After my parents went through a painful and tough divorce, I became very guarded and skeptical of love. But eventually I witnessed true love prevailing when my parents rediscovered that special feeling that they could not deny and got remarried! This inspired me to write ‘I Love When.’ When you’re with someone you truly love, all these emotions flood in. From the goosebumps you get from the slight tough of their hand to being lost in their embrace, I hope “I Love When” transports the listeners to that special place.”
On the upcoming album, Nao Yoshioka also recruited Grammy nominated producers Khari Mateen and Carolyn Malachi to help her tell her most personal stories yet. This project finds Yoshioka letting go of all restrictions to finally tell the stories she’s been wanting to share.
