East London’s mesmerising Kemi Sulola continues to prove why she’s on the rise within the UK’s R&B scene, gracing us with a gorgeous number dubbed “IF” – filled to the brim with chilling harmonies and funky bass lines!
Gloriously blessing the mic once again, Kemi offers a mind-blowing sonic experience that gives a taste of what to expect on the vocalist’s forthcoming project Room 3.
Oozing in a funkadelic ambience, the rising star turns to Brighton-based maestro El Train to cultivate the Kaytranada-esque soundscape; layering the foundation with a body-moving four-on-the-floor cadence with a thumping percussive groove. As Kemi brakes off into the goosebump-inducing hook, the instrumental transcends to new levels with a captivating baseline.
Throughout Kemi takes us on a silky-smooth journey, questioning ‘if’ that special someone in her life is truly willing to be there for her through those rough patches, ultimately touching on the warmth we all search in our relationships, whether platonic or intimate.
“IF” is a truly elegant offering that’s the perfect introduction to this blooming talent and you can take it in above!
