Who is Luke James? Singer-songwriter Luke James has co-penned songs for the likes of Chris Brown, Britney Spears and Justin Bieber over the past few years, plus had a role in the video for Beyonce's "Run the World (Girls)," but after playing the background for awhile, he's making his own bid for the spotlight. Luke, who's a New Orleans native, was formerly half of the R&B duo Luke & Q, but turned to songwriting after he and childhood friend Quinten "Q" Spears went their separate ways. Now the performing bug has bit him again though, and he's expected to release his first solo album in the next several months. In the meantime, the first single, "I Want You," just dropped. It starts off a little slowly, but builds up into a strong, powerful ballad. Check it out via the link below.
