The last we heard of Nigerian neo-soul sensation Lindsey Abudei was over three years ago when she released her stunning “…And The Bass Is Queen” album to rave reviews. But as it would turn out, Lindsey has been quite busy cooking up new material for her fans and good music lovers. The singer is now back from her self-imposed hiatus with a refreshing ballad, ‘One On The Outside’ which gives us a taste of what she’s been working on for some time now. This is the first single of her coming “Kaleidoscope” EP which is scheduled for release later this year.
Speaking about the new single, she reveals that “I’m interested in human experiences in every sphere — my personal ones and of those around me.
“As an outlier myself, I am about (finding) freedom— in our selves, our stories, our conversations, our lives and our communion with each other. This song captures this and more.”
In this smooth but striking ballad, Lindsey draws attention to the feelings of an outlier wanting previous notions of expectations stripped away. Using a romantic relationship as its muse, ‘One On The Outside’ speaks to the feelings and desires of outliers to be accepted for who they are.
