NEW MUSIC: Nakia Henry – ‘Love Letter (He Wants Me To Win)’

27/09/2010

Earlier this year I was introduced to Nakia Henry and her stunning debut , Remember Me. The album was a real breath of fresh air, containing well written, beautifully arranged songs all sung with Nakia’s distinctive vocals. While she is still pushing her debut, she has also been working on new material, and the first fruits of that labour can be heard over at her bandcamp page.

Nakia describes ‘Love Letter’ as a “love letter to the universe”, and it follows on from the spiritual/rootsy feel of the material on her debut. The track also uses a sample of a breakdown contained in a live performance of Erykah Badu’s ‘Otherside Of The Game’, which Nakia is trying to seek approval for from Ms Badu via twitter.

Take a listen below then PLEASE check out Remember Me, you will not be disappointed.
