Raheem DeVaughn Returns With New Album 'The Love And War Masterpeace' On March 2, 2010

NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ JIVE Label Group) - Jive Records singer/songwriter Raheem DeVaughn is set to release his third album The Love and War Masterpeace in stores March 2, as his first single "Bulletproof" featuring Ludacris rises on the charts. The track currently holds its place in the Top 20 on Billboard's Urban Adult Contemporary airplay chart this week with the video in rotation on the VH1 Soul and BET Centric networks.

"I named the album 'The Love and War Masterpeace' because I feel that where I am as a person and where we are as a people, we are all trying to master that internal peace and happiness in a very strange time," says the Washington, DC native. "Bulletproof" follows the politically minded thread of the album, addressing the social ills of the times. Scholar Dr. Cornel West weighs in on several interludes drawing from his background as a prominent leader in civil rights issues and expertise in progressive politics, jazz and justice.

Kenny Dope produced most of the album including "Bulletproof." Ne-Yo, Stereotypes and Ronnie "Lil Ronnie" Jackson also contribute to the production. His second single "I Don't Care" impacts Urban Adult Contemporary radio on January 25.

DeVaughn earned two Grammy nods from his sophomore effort Love Behind The Melody for Best Male R&B Performance for his No 1 smash UAC hit "Woman" and for Best R&B Song for his Top 15 Urban Mainstream single "Customer." With the success from Love Behind The Melody (which debuted at No 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart ) he garnered two 2008 BET J Awards for Best Male R&B artist and Album of the Year.

DeVaughn is primed for another high-profile year with the release of The Love and War and Masterpeace. The self-described "R&B/hippie/neo-soul/rock star" will make his acting debut this spring in the upcoming film Who Do You Love depicting the story of Chess Records.
