Obenewa’s “He” is dulcet in its tone, giving us a first taste of this London songstress. So the story goes, she was sick in bed when she started singing some lyrics a cappella, these lyrics would form “He,” the sultry record we have today. With an influx of DJ’s strutting their newest gadgets, Obenewa firmly puts her flag in the sand, letting us know that an emotionally and talented voice can still captivate an audience.
The debut track is deeply felt, where she talks about a break-up. It’s a fluid combination of soul, R&B, and snarl of rock. Of course, we are awaiting what else Obenewa has in production, with only one track up on SoundCloud Obenewa is poised to shake things up a bit.
