I came across Nakia Henry during the Myspace heydays — before Muphoric Sounds was even thought of — and remembered her name based on her risqué style, where she turns voyeurism on its head with stunning photography that one has to stop and take note. Her most recent release, Love Letter EP, is a lush track that has all the elements of a 70s groove, reminiscent of William DeVaughn’s “Be Thankful for What You Got” or a Jill Scott track from her first album, where Nakia speaks a perfect love, with someone who’s understanding, supportive, someone who allows her to be free. In part two of “Love Letter,” Nakia stretches the song further vocally and lyrically, where a heavy bass groove, in care of producer, Kenneth Bentley arrests the tune as Farrah Burns and Saddi Khali provide equally compelling lyrics in rhyme over the track. I don’t know how I missed “Love Letter”! Check it out below, if you haven’t heard it yet!
