Rosina B. Solomon Presents the Badu-esque “Kick It”

Canadian-Ethiopian R&B singer Rosina B. Solomon’s “Kick It” channels Erykah Badu and Sade. That’s to say, it’s got a real ’90s R&B sort of feel to it, both in its sound and its lyrics. The Toronto-based artist just wants to be with her special someone, because they’re special and not like other guys. It’s a simple idea, but the execution (like Tracy Lamont’s “Pray”) is what grabbed me. I am especially a fan of the production and vocal switch during the last minute of the song, as it adds a bit more weight to the subject matter (a simple key change can work wonders in the right spot, trust me). Check out “Kick It” below (along with its parent project, the aptly-titled Intro EP) and support dope music in all its forms.
