The versatile Nailah Blackman is at it again. This time she releases “O’Lawd Oye” a sultry, soulful record that draws from a distinct lineage of modern African music.

With her humming bird voice, Nailah tells a heartfelt love story, presumably set in a rustic African village. ‘O’Lawd Oye’ is sweet as a sugar cane, sultry as a warm southern night and soulful as the afro punk beats that pound through this record.
