Soul singer Ryan Shaw is preparing for the May 15 release of his third album, "Real Love," and he's given Hip Hop Media Training a first look at a live video for his song "Evermore."

Shaw said the song sets the mood for June. "Evermore is a classic romantic soul vibe. You don't hear much of that these days. It's a summer night on the beach with the one you love," he said.
Okayplayer described Shaw as a funky mixture of Sam Cooke and Cee-Lo Green.
The twice Grammy nominated Georgia singer released his debut, "This Is Ryan Shaw" in 2007 and its follow up "It Gets Better" in 2010.
