A mood: Neo Soul zone

Going to Neo-Soul night at the Jazz Cafe early last week has really re-ignited the spark for the genre, similar to the first time discovered Neo-soul as a young 13 year old. Listening to ‘On & On’ by Erykah Badu on repeat, I cultivated a love for lyricism and spoken truths, different from the hum of surface level mainstream tunes, neo-soul gives you food for thought and space for the mind to wonder. Not to mention the music always so smooth and silky from the voices of D’angelo, Dwele and Maxwell to Goaple and Floetry. The old school classics of Neo-soul are timeless sounds that continue to manifest in new artists like H.E.R and Masego.

Check out my Neo-soul playlist here

On & on- Erykah badu

Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned

If your knowledge were your wealth, then it would be well-earned

If we were made in his image, then call us by our names

Most intellects do not believe in God but they fear us just the same

Cruisin’ – D’angelo

I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

Music was made for love

Cruisin’ is made for love

Closer – goapele

Closer to my dreams

Feel it all over my being, in my being

Close your eyes and seek what you believe

Just friends – Musiq soulchild

Just can’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you

You ain’t even really gotta be my girlfriend

I just wanna know your name and maybe some time

We can hook up, hang out, just chill
