London Richards is back with 'In Love With Fire'

Posted on

Back in October we declared 17-year-old London Richards “the next big thing in R&B,” and he’s been keeping busy trying to achieve that goal. This afternoon he released a video for the second single from his debut love, London EP, and it’s a winner. The disco-inflected “In Love With Fire” has the understated confidence of a classic Michael Jackson or Bobby Brown single–the kind whose hooks slide up on you so casually that it’s almost cockier than if they made a big deal out of it–and Richards meets those comparisons head-on by busting out some fancy footwork.
