LATEEFAH NEW SINGLE – THIS IS WHO I AM

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY JULY 14, 2014 THROUGH LATEKO RECORDS AND CD BABY DISTRIBUTION

This Is Who I Am is the third single from UK/St. Lucia neo-soul artist Lateefah.

A neosoul  groove, This Is Who I Am continues on the journey of helping those who have had to deal with issues of low self-esteem and confidence. It is hard-hitting and uncompromising in its message and Lateefah  delivers  the song in her own unique vocal style. Producer for "This Is Who I Am" is the impressive young UK based producer KING who was also responsible for the production on "Love Me Through".

‘This Is Who I Am’ is the new Neo Soul track from the always amazing Lateefah. With smooth soulful vocals alongside some laid back instrumentation,‘This Is Who I Am’makes for a deeply relaxing soul single. On this track Lateefah appears to show a new talent other than her gorgeous singing voice but she appears to rap a bit also! The song writing in this song is extremely mature and it really is a credit to Lateefah that her writing abilities are clearly way beyond her age. Having already seen some great success with her previous releases and the fact that she has musical genes (her dad founded the 70’s Reggae band, Cygnus) things are only looking up for the super talented Lateefah. With ‘This Is Who I Am’ due for release July 14th I will certainly be watching out for this young songstress. BUZZ JACK - Reviewed by Urbanfairy on 3 Jul 2014

Lateefah's This Is Who I Am is an excellent example of soul music at its best, with a super relaxed vibe and some incredible talent, it is definitely easy on the ears! Her voice is so soft yet every note is perfectly in tune and sung with real power behind it. The song writing is a step away from more traditional neo soul music but in an amazing way so innovative! Lyrically it is both very relatable yet inspiring also, showing the listener that you need to be true to yourself. The instrumentation is very simple yet sophisticated; this is excellent as it really leaves room for the fantastic vocal lines. Overall I am very impressed with this song and can see bright things ahead for this soul star!    Tony_D, Whisperin and Hollerin.
