Cecil Blutcher Takes On RnB

Actor and artist Cecil Blutcher is back. After being inspired by the new wave of rnb, Cecil took to the studio to pay homage. The multitalented superstar on the rise released his own remixes to SZA’s “The Weekend” and Summer Walker’s “Girls Need Love.”

It’s always awesome to see black men show love to black women and Cecil Blutcher’s new remixes do just that. Cleverly called “Cmixes,” Blutcher put his soulful twist in two of the hottest female rnb tracks.

While, Blutcher keeps “Girls Need Love” pretty true to what fans know and love, his version of “The Weekend” is acoustic and exactly what the world needed.
