Today we present the exclusive premiere of Robert Raimon Roy’s eponymous single, “Robert Raimon Roy.”
Robert Raimon Roy, previously known simply as Rob Roy, was originally discovered by Erykah Badu and her manager Paul Levatino in 2005 after they had obtained a copy of his first album/mixtape “Dollar Out of 15 Cents.” Robert’s first video, “Fur In My Cap” from his 2nd album/mixtape “King Warrior Magician Lover,” went viral after Kanye West posted it on his now-defunct blog at kanyeuniversity.com and was later featured on HBO’s Entourage (season 6, episode 10).
The “Robert Raimon Roy” single, from RRR’s forthcoming third album, “Le Tigre Blanc,” was produced by Luke Walker and RRR himself. It features Sergio Flores aka the “Sexy Sax Man” of YouTube fame who plays both saxophone and flute on the track.
The Peter J. Brant directed video features Rob’s nemesis/doppelganger, Rob Zabrecky, who won the Academy of Magical Arts’ Stage Magician of the Year this year, as well as, Bunny Gibson, one of the original regular dancers on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand and one of the first ever “teen queens”. You can watch above now.
The single is now available on iTunes.
