Album release date: August 28th, 2012
Label: eOne Music/RT Music Group
Detroit-bred singer, songwriter, and musician Dwele, [and the same voice heard on the hook of Kanye West's bass thumping 'POWER' from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy], is back with his fifth studio album, Greater Than One. Staying close to his roots, the production remains very eclectic, offering varying tinges of hip hop throughout. Having a way with words, Dwele is not shy about what he wants in songs like ‘Obey’ and ‘Takes22Tango’. Remaining lighthearted and playful, he cites his favorite choice drink on the track ‘Patrick Ronald’, where he flows through the night not taking himself too seriously as he meets different women with the slight help from his buddy. A perfect theme for your significant other, ’Special’ is a track that feels good. With uptempo vibes, he describes how to recognize that special person in your life. Although the album doesn’t have too many features, Greater than One shows Dwele’s evolution. New listeners can understand who he is musically while fans can feel complete.
