I’ve been slightly crushing on Abra since the start of the year and the infatuation keeps on growing with every release. ***Especially with her new, experimental R&B, album “ROSE” that just dropped***. She started the year with her BLQ VELVET EP, which is on pace to be one of my favorite projects of the year. On top of that, the Darkwave Duchess has been steadily releasing tracks like “ROSES XOXO” and “U Ain’t Got to Lie” featuring Father. What draws me to Abra is not only is she surrounded by mostly male counterparts in Awful Records, but she also manages to produce a majority of her songs. It also helps that she’s from London.


This is one of my favorite releases of the year. No Lie.
