2018 saw jazz infiltrate all forms of music. Aaliyah is a student of the current resurgence taking it towards day time radio and beyond by bridging the gap between R&B and jazz. Her sultry R&B tinged vocals are as much at home on an electronic backdrop as they are a more jazz based output. Fusing a lounge R&B sound with soul and trap. Energy is centred around Aaliyah’s sweltering vocals, twitchy drum patterns and shimmering synths. She conveys a raw emotion with her voice that sets her up for a huge 2019.
