In The Spotlight

Leven Kali – “Tears Of Joy”

Born in The Netherlands and raised in Santa Monica, California, this singer, songwriter and producer seemed destined for a musical career. His father, Jerry ‘Wyzard’ Seay, was a founding member of the band Mother’s Finest. As a teen he was already collaborating with Drake and Playboi Carti. Inspired by Parliament Funkadelic, The Ohio Players and Ty Dolla $ign, he debuted with “Joy” in 2016.

Recorded in an old-school manner, with three vocalists on one microphone singing harmonies, this track is a flavorful blend of classic soul and 90s R&B. Taken from his EP “Let It Rain”, it’s the pulsating R&B beat and a booming bass that instantly draw you in, before it unfolds into a jubilant chorus of soulful smoothness. And with his silky vocals, this jam is a delicious taste of R&B/soul splendour.
