Levina Lye is here with a real song all about using your ‘Intuition’

Levina Lye is here with a real song all about using your ‘Intuition‘ and never losing this basic instinct to survive this crazy world of love.

Written & produced by Levina herself, this is a soulful song that has beautiful R&B vibrations, with a whole bunch of sassy soul to get those ears wide awake.

You love this person so much but something is telling you to be careful. You are listening to your head but your heart is taking you to a different place. With so much love to give, you want this so bad but don’t know what to do now. You know you should be careful as you don’t fully know their intentions yet.

With a voice of a kind angel, I love how Levina is so calm with her delivery. This is not about trying to sing crazy high notes, she keeps it so soulfully pure here. This quality singer is trying to see through the lies and sings with such passion. This is an intelligent woman with an intricate style that fills the air with beauty. She has been through a lot and her music is so inspiring.

Intuition‘ from Levina Lye is a sterling effort and the topic raises interesting points about players and people hiding what is really going on. Always follow your heart but let your head and intuition lead you through the smoke and mirrors.

Head through to hear this on Soundcloud.

Diquan Julius shines so bright on ‘LaLa Land’

The soulful singer Diquan Julius brings us a melody and groove that is bound to make babies on ‘LaLa Land‘.

Diquan Julius is a DC-based soul-singer-songwriter who sings with such energy and love. With a love for all types of music, Diquan has ventured in both the R&B and Gospel industry where he became a billboard charting artist with his group UTK. No, he is fully solo and ready for more.

At the age of 3, Diquan started singing in every one of his church’s choirs except the senior choir but always felt that his mother forced him to sing on Sundays. Eventually, he became a lover of music as well as gained confidence in his voice
which has landed him great opportunities such as performing the National Anthem at the Washington Wizards basketball game and singing background for the legendary Eric Benet. Thank you for Mom for giving him the motivation needed to burst on the scene.

My only wish is that this song could of been a big longer. Perhaps that is the point? This DC singer shines like a bright sky after a huge rainstorm. Diquan Julius speaks of love on ‘LaLa Land‘. He washes our souls with a top performance here that is all about that feeling you get inside sometimes. That love feel that no one else can feel for you. This is a talented musician that is building up his name after each release.

Hypothetical is the latest single from Indie Soul singer songwriter Ivy roots.
