Welcome to Joe Lington, a charming soul singer whose singing can turn any room into a party in an instant. Lington’s journey is the stuff of stories. It started with piano classes with Lisa Gold Gervais and ended with him singing solo in a church group.
Not long after Lington started to write songs about singers like Sisqo and Keith Sweat, he started to explore R&B and soul music more deeply. It didn’t take long at all. But he wasn’t happy with just copying what other people did. There is something unique about Lington’s music that comes from the way his serenades flow so easily between French, English, and Cameroonian. The music that Lington makes is more culturally rich because of this.
Everything he makes as an artist is infused with passion. The music that Lington makes is catchy, but the words he writes are honest feelings. He gets ideas from pop, funk, and soul, and he is a master at writing songs that people can really connect to. His music makes people feel both happy and sad after listening to it.
Lington has never been afraid to try new things. He loves combining upbeat beats with sad songs, which shows how creative he is. As much as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Prince shine a light on Lington’s music, his songs have a timeless quality that solidifies his place in the R&B pantheon.
Lington’s record “Black Desire” has a great song called “Je Pleure” that shows how talented he is. This song really shows how exciting it is to start a new relationship. Lington keeps us entertained with stories about meeting someone by chance, which lead to a lovely opening of the journey we all take through life.
His portrayal of strong feelings wrapped in a layer of vulnerability and sprinkled with fun gets to the heart of how people interact with each other. When it comes to love and longing, the song’s words tell us that it’s okay to be real, raw, and even a little dramatic.
At the beginning of the song, the singer tells their friend about a beautiful person they just met and how excited they are to meet this new person. People who are singing at the very end of the song sound like they are talking about how they feel about the new person they met and how much they want to spend the rest of their lives with them.
