A honey-voiced singer/songwriter who has won the respect of the entire industry, Eric Bellinger is a rising R&B phenom. Today, Eric treats his fans with a quickly turned-around video cover of “Fake Love,” the new song by Drake. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Emerging from a cloud of blunt smoke in his tastefully decorated home studio, Eric shows off his silky smooth vocals and impressive flow over acoustic guitars gently plucked by , making up the difference between Drake and Jeremih. Rocking a Colin Kaepernick jersey in front of an illuminated Pac-Man ghost and a background showing of James Cameron’s Avatar, Eric gives a behind the scenes glimpse into his studio life. With “Fake Love,” Eric demonstrates his insane talent and his ability to effortlessly straddle the worlds of Hip-Hop and R&B.
A rising young R&B talent with silky vocals and prodigious skills as an emcee, Eric Bellinger returned to the national forefront with his mixtape Eric B. For President: Term 1. Premiered in September by VIBE, the mixtape is a potent fusion of Hip-Hop and R&B, featuring sensuous bedroom jams like “Remind Her” alongside street rap bangers such as “Snappin’ and Trappin’.” An accomplished songwriter with a Grammy win and an endorsement from Barack Obama, the Compton-born artist named the mixtape as a salute to “Eric B. Is President,” the classic track from Eric B. & Rakim‘s iconic Paid in Full. Featuring appearances from RJ, 11:11, ARoc, and Phil Ade, who guests on the lavish Billboard-premiered album highlight “In My Prime“, Eric B. For President is a fully-realized artistic effort, showcasing Bellinger’s considerable talents with melody and providing an ideal soundtrack for this election season. Earning over 10 million views on YouTube over his career, Eric has established himself as a bonafide hitmaker as an artist and a songwriter, penning hits for Usher (“Lemme See”) and Justin Bieber (“Right Here), eventually earning a Grammy for working on Chris Brown‘s F.A.M.E., as well as recording solo hits such as “Valet” featuring 2 Chainz and Fetty Wap. Eric B. For President: Term 1 is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.
