After a huge break out year, including a tour with Major Lazer just months after releasing her first EP Reservation online, Angel Haze is back at it with "A Tribe Called Red". Take a first listen here.
She opens strong, beats per minute soaring, taking you into cardio mode without warning. The message hits you dead on too:
I was once on the ground, now I'm stuck in the clouds
Aint it funny how suddenly something can change?
Then, the tempo of the track itself suddenly changes: The music stops momentarily before the song smooths out for a melodious refrain. She lets you know that all this change can happen for you if you make it.
Gotta make the decision to be the one difference in your life and turn it around.
Turn it around, turn it around...
I count her in the ranks with Queen Latifah and M.I.A, women who stand first behind a message of independence and strength, instead of the less constructive yet so common self admiration and risqué photos.
