I'm a South Londoner now living in Sweden. I'm also a part-time DJ/ founder of Urbanlife Radio and co-founder of Scandinavian Soul. Music has always been my soundtrack to life and although I listen to everything, soul is always in my playlist.
The ballad is composed of lyrical heart, and a solid pop-soul beat to make it instantly catchy and reminiscent of Timberlake and The Weeknd.
R&B songstress Shaqdi brings her style impressively in the official video for her official debut single - Colorless.

The last time I saw Jarle Bernhoft, he was leaving a bar in Stockholm at 3 am.
He grabbed his jacket, tucked in his cravat and headed into the cold night air. The applause of the crowd after his performance at the Scandinavian Soul Music Awards earlier in the evening still rang in my ears.
I mention this as now I follow the Norwegian singer down the stairs to backstage area at the venue Nalen as we prepare to reminisce the past and talk about the future. Meeting artists is part of my job. However, with Bernhoft it never feels like work. It feels like sitting with a charming friend, who welcomes you in and invites you to his table. In fact, he offers me a drink as I enter. Courteous as always.
Despite the first impressions the name conjures of a solo artist, Fieh is, in fact, a nine-piece Norwegian collective and their second single 25 - is to good to miss.
Shining with the neon glow of the 80's - Andrea is the new single from Swedish singer NeverMann. Best described as 'pop/R&B fusion' this retro produced duet encompasses the electronic keys and drum machine effects direct from the genre's heyday.
The edgy, stuttered keys opening draws you into a soulful and lyrically captivating track, composed to expose Rebecca's emotional and expressive tones.
Albin Lee Meldau adds a little funk to his soul with his new single - The Weight is Gone - out today!
