In a week in which we lost an incredible, uniquely inventive talent in Prince, it’s comforting to know that there are still artists out there making the sort of fresh new music that challenges the mind and forces us to embrace new sounds, arrangements and ideas.
Just like previous track Overcome, Laura Mvula‘s latest song, Phenomenal Woman, takes things in a whole new direction. Genre-busting but definitely including plenty of soul, funk and pop, it is ridiculously engaging.
Creatively, Mvula is on fire right now, gradually attaining the wider recognition her talent richly deserves – her good friend and supporter Prince would most certainly have approved.
