Doug C. Jr stumbles into passion on “I Fell For You”
Philadelphia’s Douglas Carpenter is into his third year of delivering suave and sophisticated modern soul under the handle Doug C. Jr., and his latest single feels like a classic in the making.
Released just a week ago, “I Fell For You” is a timeless story of encountering unexpected, unbelievable infatuation in one’s life. “I think you’re something like a dream,” Doug sings, later admitting to the object of his affection that it “wasn’t the plan to fall in love with someone like you.”
Over a slow and smooth D’Angelo / Bilal-style bump, Doug ruminates on awkwardly stumbling into love, and making room for it in his life. Listen below.
