10 Jun New Music: Jam & Lewis – “Somewhat Loved (There You Go Breakin’ My Heart)” [featuring Mariah Carey]
After decades of writing hits for others, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis are putting their pens to use for themselves. The duo is releasing their first album, but as you can imagine, they won’t be singing. If Calvin Harris and DJ Khaled can do it, why can’t they?
The album, titled Jam & Lewis: Volume 1, drops on July 9 and features a who’s who of vocalists that includes Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Heather Headley, Charlie Wilson, Boyz II Men and Morris Day, among others.
The third single from the album is “Somewhat Loved (There You Go Breakin’ My Heart),” which features Mariah Carey on singing duties. Mimi also co-wrote the song with the duo (along with The-Dream).
“Somewhat Loved” starts off very slow, but that beat drops and the chorus kicks in, and you quickly realize we have a winner. The song could benefit from stronger verses, but the book more than makes you for it. Check it out below.
