Billboard.com exclusively premiered the single, which is independently distributed via EMPIRE. Austin’s forthcoming Love, Sex & Religionalbum continues to explore these three central themes over a soundtrack of provocative, potent, and powerful R&B upheld by throwback soul and rife with modern energy.

“For me, it’s a refreshing take on R&B,” said Austin. “I wanted to add something to the genre’s resurgence. There’s a theme of love throughout the songs. I’m continuing the feeling I always put inside the music, which is the beauty of romance. The song is about how desire is angelic.”

Blige, Aaliyah, Trey Songz, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Quavo, Usher and more. He earned a Grammy Award in the category of “Best R&B Song” twice for Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” and Mary J. Blige’s “Be Without You,” as well as served as the Supervising Music Producer for Lee Daniels’ Star television series.
