Ronnie Walka was born in Brooklyn, New York. The oldest of four children, he had to face difficult times in the mean streets of Brooklyn, but before he became a dead statistic, Ronnie was able to leave the streets and the gang life behind. He learned the basics of filming and writing and his creative ability allowed him to merge photography and cinematography so well that he has become very much in demand. He took it to the next level and became the publisher for Caution Magazine, but he has also produced a short film, and he is a graphic designer for many publications and books around the country.
However somewhere along his journey Ronnie became an inspiring R&B artist, joining his first R&B group at the age of sixteen. Never losing faith ‘in what God had planned for him’, Ronnie has continued to record and release music. He currently has a series of creatively sexy songs that are playing in the clubs and radio stations which are sure to set the mood in any bedroom.
One such track is his 2017 release “Sex Tape”. What could’ve arrived as a corny, blue-balled R. Kelly parody song with innuendo in triplicate is, instead, silky as a boutique lubricant.
“Sex Tape” is one of the most mature, refined, and sexy male R&B projects from any artist this year. The track opens with an expanse of cinematic white-noise, and then goes straight into layered harmonies, followed by a banging bass drum beat which snaps to a mellow mood, only to reprise excitement with Ronnie Walka’s extended vocal flourishes. This dude can stretch notes and growl vowels, as well as flip into ecstatic falsetto lines.
Ronnie has created an instantly recognizable urban sound that seamlessly blends street language, raw sexuality and vulnerability. His sound is the type that the R&B crowd can always appreciate. The music Ronnie Walka and his ilk create is indeed the sound of America in love and lust.
On “Sex Tape” Ronnie taps into that vein with surgical precision and in the process delivers a fine, cohesive work. The song seems effortless and natural. It doesn’t want to change the world or leave any significant impression, it simply wants to entertain, and it wants you to have good sex, move your body and meet new people. This could essentially be a Trey Songz-type track, only this has much better vocals!
