Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
DSD readers should recognize this Nigerian-singer/songwriter (now based in the UK) from her collaboration with Bankyondbeatz that we talked about back in March. Well, Lady Donli returned earlier this month with a new single called "Ice Cream", and it it pretty wonderful.
Check out the track below:
Neo-Soul/Jazz blended together with a mellow pop beat, "Ice Cream" is really a special song; from the A Cappella opening (and rhythm), the R&B kick-in of Tomi Thomas, all wrapping around Lady Donli's beautiful vocals. This is a song that was exactly what I was looking for to compliment summer playlists: it's catchy, it's chill, and it's got a uniquely awesome sound that just makes me feel good just to listen to it.
Like having an ice cream.
Lady Donli is one of those artists that I always look forward to hearing what she releases next, as I have yet to be disappointed: her combination of genres into something wholly her own makes every song a treat.
If you're new to her work, be sure to check out Wildflower EP which she released late last year for more chill R&B/Soul/Jazz.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
Remember, if you want me to put these playlists on other services (like Spotify), let me know on Twitter (I've linked it below)
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
