And behold – the first truly amazing song of 2016!
Malaysian songstress Yuna unleashes her honeyed vocals on a gorgeously smooth baby-making extravaganza termed ‘Crush‘ – the new single off her highly anticipated third full-length international effort titled ‘Chapters‘ due May 20th – and this one’s all Sade-meets-Aaliyah-meets-Janet.
Heating things up a notch is Usher, who brings his sexy back (enough with the EDM already bruv) as the featured vocalist on the song – and the result is endlessly stunning! I mean literally bedroom-bubblebath-candlelights levels of stunning.
Easily the best Yuna’s come up with – the chorus and the bridge…Lord!! *moist*
Aural orgasm much? Especially when Yuna and Usher’s lush, sensual coos effortlessly blend in throughout the chorus? ‘I feel a little rush / I think I’ve got a little old crush on you / I hope it’s not too much / But boy when I’m with you I hear my heart singing‘.
‘Chapters‘ follows Yuna’s 2013 sophomore international release, the critically hailed ‘Nocturnal‘.
Feather-voiced Nu Soul chanteuse Jhene Aiko’s a featured artist on ‘Chapters‘ as well on a song called ‘Used To Love‘ – the album’s easily shaping out to be one of the year’s most anticipated for me!
