Nao Yoshioka – I Love When

New York-based Japanese songstress​ Nao Yoshioka is thrilled to debut her sensual ​lead single “I Love When” from her forthcoming​ third album The Truth (YAMAHA MUSIC COMMUNICATIONS/SWEET SOUL RECORDS) available this Fall. The ​soul bearing​ R&B ballad ​was produced by Swizz Beatz protégé​ Tyrone “Musicman Ty” Johnson (Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg).

​”After my parents went through a painful and tough divorce, I became very guarded and skeptical of love. But eventually I witnessed true love prevailing when my parents rediscovered that special feeling that they could not deny and got remarried! This inspired me to write ‘I Love When​,’” Nao​ ​Yoshioka explains​. ​”When you’re with someone you truly love, all these emotions flood in. From the goosebumps you get from the slight tough of their hand to being lost in their embrace, I hope “I Love When” transports the listeners to that special place.”​

“Working with Musicman Ty was an extremely collaborative process. He pushed me creatively and was able to help me express the exact feelings I really wanted to express​.”

For her album, The Truth , Nao Yoshioka also recruited Grammy nominated producers Khari Mateen (Jill Scott, James Poyser) and Carolyn Malachi to help her tell her most personal ​stories yet. This project finds Yoshioka letting go of all restrictions to finally tell the stories she’s been wanting to share.​
