‘Show Me Love’ is the impressive first showing from the new Soul songstress on the block Naliyah.
Naliyah could really be one to look out for if ‘Show Me Love’ is anything to go by. Naliyah is a 21 year old Ethiopian born, Stockholm raised, and currently London based talent. She grew up with strong Ethiopian Jazz influences but also a strong affinity towards Gospel. This eventually led to Naliyah joining the youth branch of Swedens famous Tensta Gospel choir, a group that has performed at festivals and across the world.
She brings all of these nuances into her music and it is this blend of cultures as well as musical genres that help Naliyah stand out. On ‘Show Me Love’ we get the Soul element most strongly in her vocals, which ensnare you with their appealing tones. This then sits in slight contrast with production that blends some Jazz, Hip-Hop, and even notes of R&B creating a track you need to hear.
With this genre melding approach, Naliyah is set to pave her own lane through traversing soundscapes that are yet to be explored. If you’re going to give one track a listen today, make sure it is Naliyah ‘Show Me Love’. She is an exciting artist with an abundance of talent, and at just the start of her career she has already set the bar high. So the fact that she still has more to show and room to grow means she is an artist you can’t help but keep an eye on as her career develops.
