R&B artist, Ricco Barrino prepares his long-awaited return to the spotlight with new music. After contributing vocals to hits such as, T.I.’s chart-topping “Whatever You Like”, Colonel Loud’s “California”, and co-writing his younger sister Fantasia’s platinum selling debut album Free Yourself, the former Grand Hustle signee shares the lyric video for his single “You Let Me Down”.
“This song came from a time in my life where my world shattered. I lost my grandmother, as well as the one I thought was the love of my life.“Ricco Barrino
High Point, North Carolina native Ricco, got his start leading the choir for his family church and turned to open mics and talent shows as he grew older. After his younger sister Fantasia’s 2004 American Idol win, Ricco would go on the road as Fantasia’s Music Director. Developing strong relationships along the way, Ricco eventually signed to rapper T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint. When things came to a halt following T.I.’s jail time, Ricco was left to fend for himself.
Ricco and his longtime friend and industry exec Waleed Coyote released a string of regional hits until one took off, “California” and experienced instant success. Now Ricco is back with a vengeance and promising vocals on “You Let Me Down”
