DaShawn Shauntá comes from Grant Prairie Texas, birth place of Selena Gomez, and is one of the most interesting artists that you’ll ever meet. She incorporates rap, gospel, and R & B aspects to her music, her sensual voice being the spoon that blends them together like she’s stirring cake batter. The results are breathtaking — she moves like a cat, urbane and delicate, throughout her songs, enunciating certain words and phrases to thrilling effect. Her tenacious aesthetic is in conflict with her soulful demeanor and it’s unlike anything in the game. She’s new to the industry, but she’s absolutely necessary to facilitate the change we need and to open the floodgates for artists who don’t fit neatly into one category, especially women who are frequently thrown into one.
