Seinabo Sey – Truth
Swedish-Gambian singer/songwriter Seinabo Sey has a voice that will quite frankly take your breath away. Having introduced herself with the emphatic and anthemic single “Younger”, the artist went onto release her critically-acclaimed debut album Pretend which was preceded by two equally impressive EPs dedicated to her mother and father in the form of For Madeline and For Maudo. A magical blend of soulful R&B and pop, the record boasts Seinabo Sey’s poetic songwriting and magnificent voice, something that is ever present in I’m A Dream, her spellbinding sophomore album which released last September.
For COLORS, Seinabo Sey delivers a poignant yet powerful rendition of “Truth”, a heartfelt and utterly captivating cut taken from I’m A Dream. Opening with the mantra-like “This shit ain’t a lie, you love or you die”, Seinabo sets the scene for the track’s retrospective and reflective atmosphere as she relays her feelings after a breakup. Accompanied by nothing but the gentle cries of the piano keys, Sey’s golden tones offer a consoling hug, lifting your spirits ever so slightly with each and every word, line and verse. Enjoy the ardent performance of “Truth” above and be sure to give her incredible album I’m A Dream too.
