Don't one of these come out every few months, aren't they all supposed to be really good, then everyone moves on to the next one?

I didn’t know who Alina was but I see she did that Urban Flora and this shit is crack.

It’s a shame I can’t remember names the days. If someone asked me to go to see Alina I would say no based off the name. Spotify has ruined me.

shut up already, damn

Alina seems like she is Jhene Aiko lite trying to break into slightly smoother soul space.. She had her success initially in the Chill EDM space (which is just r&b with harder beats and efx)... imo her direct comp is Snoh Aalegra

Jorja has always been straight forward hip hop adjacent soul like Corinne Bailey Rae with better social media and a tad bit "cooler"

Alina and Jorja aren't in the same lane.
Alina and Snoh though. Direct competition.
White euro, "strange" name.

Seems like they (the industry, overall) keeps trying the same thing, with only minor variations. FKA Twigs is the only one I've heard that sounds drastically different, but it's not my thing, personally.

Corrine Baily Rae and Lianne La Havas have really nice voices, but they keep making that Lite Soul elevator music.

but I guess it's like KPOP and all the artist looking like white asians.

I think the UK loves their lite women for obvious reasons.

Seems like a British thing no?

I mean you have Jorja, Raye, Mabel, Lianne, Ella Mai (is also British by way of Queens)

It started off slow but I think it really picked up with "February 3rd."

It works well as a passive listen. Her voice sounds great. The production isn't very interesting and the songwriting leaves something to be desired in a lot of places. I've been following her for 2 years, since her first songs dropped on SoundCloud so I wanted/expected more out of this project. 3 of the songs were released 2 years ago and the fact that they're, to me, among the best tracks, is disappointing. After On My Mind (criminal it's not on here), I Am from the Black Panther soundtrack, and the strength of her EP I thought this project would be better than it is. I think she's talented enough to make something GREAT. This is just pretty good to me.

so i peeped the album, and it's good but she killed the live performance. I tend to think that way about a lot of the Tiny Desk performances.
