Do you need a pick me up? A little jolt of R&B to get your day started? Well, check out the new visual from multi-Grammy nominated hit singer/songwriter/producer Stokley. Featured on his sophomore album SANKOFA, Stokley released his new video “Cafe” featuring Wale, which he produced and wrote with hit songwriting duo Shakespeare! (Justin Beiber, The Internet). A fan favorite, Stokley delivers “Cafe” so seductively that it adds a bit of spice to arouse your soul. Wale’s verse is like pouring your favorite creamer into a cup of coffee. The two make magic together, so much so that the song debuted as the #1 most added record on R&B Radio. Directed by Josh Sikkema, the video showcases the beauty of black women, a narrative Stokley has always championed. The video also features TikTok star Nathan Davis Jr (@nathandavidjrNDJ), one of the many content creators who introduced Stokley to a new generation of music listeners with the “Breaking My Heart Challenge.”
A global R&B star and idol, Stokley has put his stamp on R&B music. With the release of SANKOFA, the album has produced several hits, including his #1 song “She” and Top 10 chart-toppers “Vibrant” feat. Snoop Dogg, “Cascade” ft. The Bonfyre and “WOMAN” featuring Ghanian superstar KiDi.
The charismatic and witty Stokley spoke with Rolling Stone and touched upon the impact that he has had on Black Music as the lead singer of the legendary Mint Condition and working with iconic artists like Prince, Janet Jackson, Usher, and more. A new generation recently discovered Stokley’s genius when he went viral on TikTok with the “Breaking My Heart Challenge.”
