The incredibly talented soul singer Ego Ella May, is back in a big way with her latest single ‘Girls Don’t Always Sing About Boys’. The single is the follow up to what has been a very relatively busy 12 months for Ego. Having taken a bit of a break from releasing new music for a few years, she returned with Table For One last year. Then her debut album, So Far, dropped in September. It was very well received by fans and critics of Soul music. ‘Girls Don’t Always Sing About Boys’ again showcases her signature Neo-Soul andJazz fusion sound.
The track truly optimises all of the ingredients for an exceptional soulful tune. With its laid-back, yet soulful hypnotic production the track serves as honey to the ears. Ella really taps into her Neo-Soul bag with flavours very reminiscent of the great Erykah Badu. Vivid lyrics such as “Will anybody listen at all if I don’t parade in a bra?” and “Girls don’t always sing about boys, What if I wanna talk about suffering, in the earth, the ocean plastic happenings?” paint a clear picture with the messaging.
A phenomenal track, ‘Girls Don’t Always Sing About Boys’ is the lead-single to another forthcoming album, and we are definitely intrigued for what that has in store. It just got dreamy visuals too. Check it below.
