In honor of what would have been The Notorious B.I.G.’s 41st birthday, Melanie Fiona put up an a cappella looped cover of “One More Chance”. Her voice is the hotness. Now I need to go back and put one of my favorite songs of 2012, “Wrong Side of a Love Song” on repeat.
For damn near thirty years, London based songstress Sade Adu’s voice has been the epitome of aural pleasure. Her velvety voice, laced with hints of her British accent, has been a go to for music listeners hell bent on relaxing, escaping, and finding a refuge of love in a world of madness. Since 1984, the woman born Helen Folasade Adu, has managed to be a major force in music—albeit a quiet one—influencing a laundry list of recording artists in the genres of R&B, soul, jazz and hip hop. Simply put, she’s living the Diamond Life.
