Divina – Praying for Amnesia: Lyrically Sharp, Resonantly Piercing R&B Soul

R&B & Soul tracks this resonant can only be born out of the dark, dank depths of despair, whilst you would expect plenty of sonorous emotion from a Soul track, the amount of weight behind the lyrics of Divina Blackson’s latest single Praying for Amnesia nearly floors you.

As a lyrical snob, I’m almost impossible to please, yet the wit and pain which went into the lyrics of Praying for Amnesia proves that the London, UK-based artist is anything but your typical songstress. The instrumentals had just as many hooks as the wounding lyricism, through a pioneering mix of smooth R&B Praying for Amnesia progresses through the rattle and snare of 808 beats which give the standout single a contemporary feel with a timeless R&B root-deep charm. Polished off with a pitch perfect production, you’ve got a radio-ready hit with Divina’s latest work of soul-driven alchemy.
