The debate of whether R&B still stands strong in today’s era of music can be split right down the middle. Some feel the genre remains alive and well with new artists while others believe the talent pool is far from deep. We could go back and forth about it all day as most conversations in reference to music go, but Olawumi wants to put an end to the discussion and push R&B in the right direction with solid tunes. Hailing from New Jersey, the vocalist is on a mission to prove that good music within the new generation isn’t hard to find if you lend an ear to what she has to say. Her soothing voice and strong content is worth the listen; shining in the first installment of the Hate Me music series.
The first of three parts of the series before the release of her Crowns EP, the songstress kicks it off with a bang. With two Reckless-produced songs filled with frustration, pain, and redemption, Olawumi doesn’t just give quality records, she presents a story that women can relate to over some banging production. Her vocal abilities are constantly progressing and it causes the music to pop a little more for fans desperate for fresh R&B records. It may be only the beginning of the series, but if you’re genuinely looking for crooners to satisfy your listening ears, look no further than what this talented artist has to offer.
Keep up with Olawumi and the upcoming volumes of the Hate Me series here!
