A Beautiful Gift From Detroit
When it comes to Detroit, Hip Hop has many success stories, but the same isn’t true for R&B. As more types of music pilfer the genre’s signature delivery — and its singers — for their own ends, it’s tougher for R&B artists to stand out. Aspiring singers are beset by chic, pop like rappers crooning hooks, and even vocalists laying out powerful melismatic runs on EDM tracks. Even indie rock, which traditionally wanted nothing to do with R&B, now regularly borrows from the likes of Sade.
But the ambitious, self-assured new EP from the Detroit singer Charity, Yellow, suggests that R&B singers from The Motor City still have plenty to contribute. Her subtle intensity and focused exploration of all, or nearly all her feelings and emotions, leaves one to only admire her vulnerability.
If you don’t believe me, take a listen for yourself.
