A Second Listen ... Carlitta Durand
Carlitta Durand is a classic find. I posted about her a few days ago but that was before I heard the full mixtape. Felt like I had to come back and tell you that after I did my first (second, third and forth) listen, I have to say "Carlitta's Way: The Prelude" is hot!
She is cool, fresh, upbeat and mellow. Solid vocals and real lyrics. The mixtape has that smoothed out R&B with a soulful feel and a taste of new school jazz that smacks you in the face. It's a pleasure to listen to. Your ears will thank you.
I was already feeling "What If" but that's not the only quality track on the mixtape. "Thinkin Bout Ya" is amazing. "Someone Has Your Heart" is a real honest track. And I can't even find words to describe "A New Life", but I can't stop listening to the track. There's a lot of god music packaged in Carlitta's Way.
She hits the ground running with a very soultry sound and never looks back. She is definitely not afraid to put it out there. Get the mixtape!
