A lot of today’s R&B focuses on carnal pleasures, but back in the day the genre tackled social and political issues. Persian-German soul singer/songwriter Kaye-Ree, who I first wrote about here way back in 2007, is throwing it back to that era with her latest single, “One.” “One” covers the idea of unity, and true freedom, and it does so with a chorus that sticks with you, which is fantastic because it means the message keeps replaying in your head, as well. If you’re looking for something thought provoking, Kaye-Ree provides it with “One.” Listening to the song might even cause people to be kinder to each other!
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
