MINI REVIEWS ABOUT HER MUSIC

LOVE IT. SOFT ALMOST LATIN RHYTHMS BLEND INTO A SUBTLE R’N’B DROP THAT SOUNDS SO RELAXED AND READY FOR A GREAT ENJOYABLE SESSION. THE VOICE IS TOTALLY MESMERIZING, AND SHE CAN SING A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN BEYONCE AND HER PEERS. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR A FULLER VERSION OR EXTENDED MIX. NEIL BROWN IN MAIDSTONE UK NICE NEW TYPE OF SOUL. VERY SOULFUL ARTIST. IS THERE ANY CHANCE I CAN DO A REMIX TO THIS SONG?? MP MARCUS IN LONDON UK THANKS FOR COVERING THIS TRACK BY A SOUTH AFRICAN SINGER. THERES A LOT OF AMAZING MUSIC COMING OUT OF THE CONTINENT THAT NEEDS TO BE PROMOTED HERE IN THE US. BLESSINGS! DJ NEVA IN JERSEY CITY, NJ USA VERY GOOD VOCALS, SPIRITUAL AND SOULFUL AND FUN TO HEAR. MZN INDIE RADIO IN HADDON, NJ USA
