Nigerian-canadian Soul singer, Zenesoul drops brand new EP “Brown Sugar”. She describes it as the B side to her previous critically acclaimed project “Coffee” released last summer.
Coffee was about so much bitterness and pain I felt from love, whereas Brown Sugar is a manifestation of the type of love I want. I’m putting the energy out there. I’ve been learning that I need to be careful of the things I say and the energy I put out into the universe, so I’m working on being better. Coffee also had a lot of guitars which I love because guitars are so intimate and provoke story telling. Brown Sugar on the other hand is more vibes, more full, it’s not as intimate but still brings you into my world. It’s a mature Zenesoul.
She unveils the sweet side to love in this EP with effortless vocals and skillful songwriting.
