Ahead of the release of his second album, HONEYCOMB, jitwam drops its first single, “temptations”, on March 6th, 2019. A classic soul joint of the highest caliber, the song features his most sensual guitar work yet and Marie Bashiru on backing vocals. Taking R&B back to its roots, it’s a heart-melting homage to late-night love affairs.
“'Temptations' is an ode to the forbidden fruit we all face in our life…with focus, discipline and respect, you can learn to direct the changes that happen into something you can grow from,” jitwam says.
Co-produced with Natureboy Flako, “temptations” showcases jitwam’s songwriting chops and affinity for broken microphone blues, freeing him from the constraints of the dance floor and opening the door to new musical identities. Stitching together disparate ideas, he delivers some of the warmest music you’ll hear all year.

I might love this even more than Black Focus. Why? There is more of a focus on that Wu Funk sound, more melodies by the rhythm master, more hip-hop flavor, a chance for Kamaal to really shine. A perfect balance between hard hitting sounds with more melodic and meditative ones. One of the few albums I wish was 24-bit quality, that is how great this is. At the top of all the 2018 "best of" lists for a reason. Much respect HW. Edward
