“Don’t think I don’t see them lookin at ya…all of them wishin they can have you…and as a matter of fact…a bunch of them itchin for you to scratch them…(All:Need)”
Out of gratitude for the support that Wondaland Records has been receiving, their own Roman GianArthur has released an EP entitled OK LADY. It is just so good.
The EP is 6 tracks & on most of them Roman samples D’Angelo. On the opening track he does his own rendition of D’Angelo’s Lady. Throughout the EP he also borrows from D’Angelo & Raphael Saadiq’s Be Here & Send it On. Yet he still manages to bring his own sound to things.
The songs are incredibly soulful, aided by his lovely falsetto & an awesome band. The guitar riffs throughout are incredibly dope & the feel is late 90s, early 00s neo-soul. The only feature is with record label leader Janelle Monae on a single titled No Surpr:ses. The EP follows together beautifully & by the time it was done I wanted more. I cannot wait for a full length work from Roman.
