Roses sealed in water bags, sun-kissed shades, and midnight cruises post-sunset, are all part of the alluring visuals that come to life in Snoh Aalegra‘s new music video “Whoa,” featuring a hypnotic on-screen romance with Michael B. Jordan.
Filmed in Berlin, “Whoa” sees an exclusive relationship, perhaps true-to-life, delicately shared between the Swedish-Iranian singer, Aalegra, and American actor, Jordan.
“Whoa” paints the picture that RnB dreams are made of – finding a soul mate to immerse yourself within, while time is merely a measurement of the moments spent together; a passionate portrait only a muse as captivating as Aalegra could achieve.
Swedish-Iranian muse Snoh Aalegra, proves a pure ride-or-die for the new wave of alternative RnB with sophomore album Ugh, those feels again – a celestial, track-by-track portrayal of losing “the one” you didn’t plan on.
Ugh, those feels again, the follow-up album to her well-received debut FEELS(2017), sees an (even more) vulnerable Snoh; baring the complete spectrum of emotion that comes with falling hard (“Situationship“) for what feels like the love of a lifetime (“Find Someone Like You“), to giving it your all (“You“) only to find out that when you finally break all of the smoky mirrors (“Nothing to Me“) – it’s all over and here comes those feels again(“I Didn’t Mean to Fall in Love“).
And finally, when you’re really through… there comes a moment of enlightenment and self-discovery (the ultimate “Peace“).
Simply mesmerising, Snoh is one of the rare few artists that effortlessly demands attention all by herself with no special features in this album – just Snoh, her beatific vocals, a refreshingly-impressive range and of course, to top it all off… Snoh doesn’t just wear her heart on her sleeve, she puts every bit of it into her music.
If ‘Blues Hip Hop‘ is on the rise, then C.S. Armstrong is a name you’re sure to remember – diving deep into the heart-wrenching soul of bare-all blues, gripping gospel and ready to tell you the Truth Be Told.
For anyone and everyone who says “they don’t make music like this anymore,” you need to hear ‘Rain In The Ghetto‘. Armstrong renders and recreates the raw yet celestial sounds of rhythm and blues with deep-edgy vocals, before taking listeners on a tough trip down memory lane in ‘Real (Where I Come From)‘.
Simply unparalleled, merging emotion-fuelled melodies with gritty gasps of relief, the Houston-based artist reveals all; everywhere from an abusive upbringing and overcoming leukaemia to surviving years on-end in the army, to finally finding his feet and thus, the ultimate “reason to be here.”
And for this 32-year-old artist on the rise, that ‘Reason‘ couldn’t be any clearer to listeners – it is, and always will be, music.
