Yeah, she’s the other Knowles girl. Beyonce’s lil’ sister has been living in the shadow of her big-deal big sister. And after a few years of seeming a touch lost, it looks like she’s finally found her way and is picking up steam. This week she put out an excellent EP – True is seven songs that have a lot of class, artistry and intrigue. Four years ago she gave us Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, a retro-pop number. At the time, it kind of captured a lot of the charm behind a growing trend of ’60s soul revivalism. But at the same time, it was just that – it was almost like a concept record. It didn’t have the timelessness that True has. And with a new announcement, tickets are on sale TODAY and she’ll be here in two weeks time.
The success story of this EP is already written on the wall with “Losing You.” Man, it’s good. And the video is so damn charming and well-done. The looks, the dancing, the styling, the light – it’s all just right. Seeing her perform it in Philadelphia is worth the price of admission alone.
