Life & Music (Original​-​Unreleased Single)

by Rogiérs



On this now 14th ANNIVERSARY of my debut album, FMG is offering here the *Original, Unreleased* version of the album's title track, "Life & Music."

Between 2006 and 2007 this original version was in rotation on radio station playlists from Atlanta, GA to Birmingham, UK, Mexico City, Detroit Germany and Japan and circulating as a promotional single with a remix by rapper/producer Big Tone to garner press, radio support and "buzz" for the then debut effort. But at the time (due to nervousness and apprehension regarding sample clearance and licensing) Rogiérs's team opted to only include the remix version with Big Tone on the actual album, and not this version. This-the label hoped, would help steer clear of controversy or liability and encourage radio to "add" the single to more formats beyond Adult Urban/Contemporary formats. Over the years it's essentially been a hidden track only super-fans had access-to or memory-of. But as the album approaches its 15 year anniversary in 2023, FMG is confident this recording can officially be made available for everyone; fans, friends and acquaintances. It's a mesmerizing version capturing the essence of Rogiérs' voice in his plight as an artist AND the creative/collaborative height which produced this timeless musical work (Dre Bowman, Rogiérs). On behalf of Rogiérs and the entire team, we hope you enjoy this original version and support this and other works from his catalogue. The full album "Life & Music: All of It." is available on iTunes, iTunes Radio, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube and wherever music is bought or enjoyed.

*Special note from the Artist/Singer-Songwriter:

"There have been so many trials before, during and after but sincerely I thank every single fan, singer, musician, producer, blogger, radio host, promoter, stage hand, engineer and every friend old and new who made this album possible. With your help we did something no big-time “manager”, or “major label” ever could (or ever did) do. My biggest debt goes to my brother and collaborator, the award-winning Dre Bowman and Bojan Dugic for really making this album possible after 7 years of recording & being in/out of record deals. And to all of you whom I love in this video, I may never win a Grammy but this is truly one of the greatest gifts “life & music” has given me.

Thank you forever. 💕 -R"
