Lemar has enjoyed a career that has spanned a decade and he is back this week with his new album Invincible.
This album marks a new path for the singer-songwriter as it is not only his first record since 2010 but the first release off his own label.
The First Time is the first track on the album and there is an anthemic feel to the record - not to mention the production on the song is incredibly slick.
Lemar still has a great voice that is just so easy to listen to and he has mixed pop and R&B sounds - a combination that works really well.
He continues this mix of genres with title track Invincible and this is one of the best tracks on the record.
His smooth vocals are backed by a catchy hook as well as some beautiful strings that gives the song that little bit of extra something.
There is more of Motown feel to Keep On Luvin' and there is a real grit to Lemar's voice on this track.
This is a sound that is new for the singer and it is a genre that he really could find some success in.
However he doesn't really explore this and he goes back to what he does best - the pop ballad.
And where there is nothing wrong with the likes of Beautiful and Hurricane I would like to have seen him do something different having been away for a couple of years.
Invincible is a solid record from Lemar and there are some great moments on it but he too regularly went back to his comfort zone.
There is no doubt that he is a great song-writer and he has a strong voice it would just have been nice to see him deliver more songs in the style of Keep On Luvin''.
