Here's the first thing you need to know about L.A. singer KES: He's one of L.A. Reid and Babyface's first joint-signing in around 25 years. With their legendary track record, that might as well be all you need to know, but if you listen to "Arabian Paradise" from his upcoming EP Audio Justice, you can understand what caught their ears. He melds contemporary R&B with its ’80s equivalents—think Trey Songz if he were soundtracking a Don Johnson-era episode of Miami Vice. Check it out below. Audio Justice lands December 2 before the release of his first official single "Gimme Your Love" in early 2014.
