Today, platinum r&b recording artist Adrian Marcel releases his first single of the year, “I Gotchu”. Produced by 2Tall and Hightone and written by Adrian Marcel, Sonny B and Ryn Nicole, the track keeps Adrian’s signature sound with elements of both modern and classic r&b, and all of the makings of a Summer lover’s anthem. The lyric video is also out today. An official video for the track will debut later this month.
“From a man’s perspective, ‘I Gotchu’ is a very masculine take on vulnerability, assuring his woman that he will ride for her, protect her, and stay by her side, through the good, bad, and ugly,” says Adrian about the single. “This song’s for everyone that has experienced love at any and every level. It speaks on the sides of love that not everyone on the outside looking in sees. This song describes these experiences using unconventional & edgy metaphors. Love doesn’t always mean romance, yet if it’s real, it’s worth dying for in most cases,” he continues.
Adrian is gearing up for more music coming out later this Fall and has been keeping his calendar busy. He recently performed the national anthem at the San Francisco Giants game and headlined a sold out show earlier this month at The New Parish in Oakland, CA.
With almost 10 years in the music business and known for his buttery vocals and authentic r&b sound combined with a charming yet rugged appeal, Adrian has created a lane in the genre that differentiates him from his peers. His musical role models include Ginuwine, Al Green, D’Angelo, Maxwell and more.
Adrian has had a string of success with his 7 Days of Weak mixtape presented by Raphael Saadiq in 2013 and his first RIAA-certified platinum hit single, “2AM” (81 million + views on YouTube) featuring Sage the Gemini in 2014.
