I like to think I have great taste in Pop music, a lot of music I like tends to get popular later on (which I intend on writing a blog of all my correct assumptions on songs I liked that later became hits), so I would like to call out Katy B as another great pop singer to look out for.
At first I wasn’t sure what her voice reminded me of, and then it hit me, Rihanna. She’s a red-headed Rihanna. It’s not what you expect out of this sweet looking girl, and she’s definitely not a “Good Girl Gone Bad” at all. No, she just has a soulful, heart-string pulling quality to her voice, full of soul. This recent single that debuted at the end of 2013 is such a refreshing song.
It’s a ballad, and talks about dealing with the repercussions of not dealing with your emotions. I love this song and have been listening to it a lot over the months.
Check it out and let me know what you think. Unfortunately, out of the other songs I’ve listened to from Katy B, I have not found one nearly as catchy and interesting, so I think her success really depends on future follow-up hits and not past ones. Would love to see this girl become more mainstream.
