Back in July 2017, James Reid caught all of us off guard with his latest album Palm Dreams. A surprise to everyone, the RnB-scored album from the Fil-Aussie celebrity deviated itself from the expected pop. With smoothly produced tracks, it’s safe to say that a new James Reid has emerged and is planning to take the local music industry by storm.
It’s almost been a year since Palm Dreams and James maintained his lowkey demeanor from music for some time now. His fans have been craving for more but his latest stint as an artist was a music video for The Life. But to celebrate his 25th birthday early, James finally broke his silence. Giving us presents for his birthday, 16B by James Reid is now available on Spotify.
