Singer Denitia Odigie has got an addictive voice and style that sounds something like a blend of Mara Hruby, Jennah Bell, Fiona Apple, and Norah Jones. The good folks of Okayplayer put us on to this lady with their premier of the studio version of her "Weekend" tune, which you can disappear into below.
The song will be on her upcoming album, Air, Light. For a look into where the song originally came from, take a listen to her Songs For Sunsets + Dream Suite EP below.
Your Facebook and Internet have nearly imploded with D'Angelo mentions in the last couple weeks, we know. But do the celebrations really have to stop? Who said we have to stop? No one. It's like, a healthy implosion.
Okayplayer and Sam Champ have graciously contributed to more D'Angelo happy times with their D'Angelo Live! mixtape featuring our man live across stages worldwide. Now you, too, can get up out of your bed-ridden depression for missing D'Angelo in Europe. Boogie!
