New Songs: India.Arie – ‘Just Do You’ & ‘This Love’

17c5766f661e19e904074b3701c7d87a New Songs:  India.Arie   Just Do You & This Love

 

‘Cocoa Butter’ – the smooth lead single from guitar wielding soulstress India.Arie‘s forthcoming album ‘Songversation’ – has certainly been the topic of conversation for faithful #Soulbirds anxiously awaiting more tastes of the Georgia beauty’s newest offerings.

Much to their delight, Arie makes them wait no more with the unveiling of two new tunes ‘This Love’ and ‘Just Do You’.

The latter, said to soon serve as the singer’s official second single, is already winning listeners over with its acoustic decorations and lyrics of self-love.  Reminiscent of many of Arie’s gems of the past (see:  “I Am Not My Hair”, “Private Party”, etc.), get your first listen below and weigh in:

While we definitely bobbed our heads to both tracks, we have to say ‘This Love’ is a winner.  Dramatic in its instrumentation and storytelling, we could only imagine how good its accompanying visual would be if ever chosen for “single-hood”.  Let’s not even mention the chills you get listening to Arie’s oft-underrated melisma!  Some of those runs and riffs are just not to be messed with.

‘Just Do You’ is arguably the more radio friendly of the two (and more of the Arie fans have grown to know and love), but we could tell from one listen that ‘Love’ will be what’s on repeat here at TGJ HQ.

‘Songversation’ hits shelves on June 25th.

    Music to my ears! (and that’s difficult to find nowadays ironically). India always brings it lyrically and vocally. This Love is really good.
