How do we rate it?
The album’s sound is described as “hood pop”—the artist’s self-created style. A mash-up of hip hop, R&B and pop intermix and shapes what Ekelle calls ‘popular music for the streets.’
The majority of the tracks are produced by B. Morales and co-produced by Maizy F and Gee Wunder.
There’s no doubt that you can hear the influences of yesteryear’s Miami bass on songs like “Look’d So Good” and “Slide.”
Yet the blurring pop and disco sounds are unescapable on “Snow” and “Be Free” respectfully.
If you’re looking for some weight, you can find it on track five called “Scared Now,” featuring Maizy F, who drops a solid verse.
If you’re looking for a sonically good time, put your rollerskates on, and get your pods out—this could be a vibe for you.
However, if you desire lyrical prowess alongside her vocals, perhaps the next album will have a fiercer flow and delivery for the masses.
