Professional R’n’B/Soul revivalist and overall stunner Solange Knowles has just unveiled an insane compilation album through her Saint Records label, titled ‘Saint Heron‘, and quite unsurprisingly, the album is just everything!
Featuring brand new cuts from genre-defying R’n’B visionaries like Jhene Aiko, BC Kingdom, Kelala, India Shawn, Sampha as well as Cassie (check out her slay-worthy collab with Solange titled ‘Indo‘ on the album), the album is nothing short of an Indie-R’n’B-Nu Soul impregnated sonic extravaganza.
The Indie-Soul laced ‘Cash In‘ is Solange’s brand new single on the album, and as per usual, the song is a sparse and gleefully left-fielded experimental production.
Solange’s vocals are a giddy mix of breathy and crystalline – Aaliyah and Erykah Badu would have been proud.
Get yourself a copy of ‘Saint Heron‘ if you’ve thrived on music by Amel Larrieux, Lalah Hathaway, Mary J Blige, Ledisi, Floetry and of course, Badu and Aaliyah.
The futuristic yet minimal vibes, the diversity, the stellar vocals – this is what Nu Soul is all about!
Easily one of my fave albums of the year – expect it to rank real high on my year-end charts!
