Asa’s music has previously had a more political bent than this new record. Really? Don’t you just want to hear some happy music? If I want misery I will call my broker right now.
Asa sings, on this record in any case, in English and Yoruba. She was born in Paris and returned to Lagos as a youngster. When you listen to any given song by her you hear a wealth of musical influences and she really has an amazing voice.
