Yearning for that true place that she feels comfortable inside, Essosa sings with so much class and promise, on the excellent lead single from her upcoming EP called ‘Belong‘.
Essosa is an East London-born, Toronto, Canada-raised dancer and neo-soul/RnB singer-songwriter who has that rare type of voice that will make you shiver in your spine.
Her crystal clean tone has you gazing outside the dusty window, wondering when you will find that elusive soulmate who you desire so much to stay warm with.
This is the story about feeling like you are in the wrong place in time, everything feels off and you can’t quite put your finger on it. You have been trying to get out there but are feeling despondent and people forget you too quickly. The world is moving so fast but you are an old soul who loves authenticity, rather than fake conversations about nothing.
She sings with such grace as she opens the snowed under window to let us inside — the freezing temperatures have her mood in a sad state of affairs — as she wonders if things will change around, so she can feel real love again.
‘Belong‘ from enchanting London neo-soul/RnB singer-songwriter and dancer Essosa, is that incredible real single that is too common in this socially distanced world. Life does indeed feel lonely and cold when you feel like you don’t belong, as you look for your tribe, that truly get you.
