VanJess

WHats Up?

A While back when I was listening to the Are and Be playlist on Spotify I came across a gem. That song is called Addicted and its by a duo called VanJess. That’s play on their names Ivana and Jessica Nkokike. Ever since then I’ve come across a couple of their singles from the album they  just recently released on the 27th of July called Silk Canvas.

Who are they like? 

When going through their music I can only think of music from the late 90’s and early 00’s by people like TLC, Destiny’s Child, SWV, Aaliyah and them. I’ve got to say I fell in love with their music because they actually do it perfectly unlike a lot of musicians who tend to take a bad turn when trying to go back in time.

Silk Canvas has 14 tracks with features from GoldLink on Through Enough, Masego on Touch The Floor, Berhana and Leikeli47 on Easy and finally Little Simz on Rewind Time and if my ear serves me right KAYTRANADA produced Another Lover. Please bare in mind that I am only naming those tracks because they are featuring my favorites.

If you loved RnB music from the years I mentioned earlier on I suggest you go on and listen to their album. I promise you, you will not be disappointed by the album as a whole.

Below is audio from Easy (Feat. Berhana and Leikeli47) I hope you enjoy it.
