After she won the one and only Swedish season of X Factor in 2012, at only 15 years of age, Awa hasn’t made much noise in music. During this time, she’s released a total of three quite unnoticed singles and focused on creating a name as an influencer and fashion designer.
This time she releases her most well-produced track so far.
And she jumps onto what seems to be a current R&B-trend — a female Stockholm-singer in collaboration with a male London-rapper.
With music being globalized and mixed more and more, it’s clear that Scandinavia and the UK have a give-and-take-relationship in the urban stage. Such as with No Place Like Me by Molly Hammar and Big Narstie, and Conversation by Sabina Ddumba and Kojo Funds.
Awa, on her hand, teams up with Ebenezer on the track – F**kin’ Love Songs. But unlike these two previously mentioned tracks, Awa and Ebenezer don’t use the dancehall/bashment-influence, but rather make a pure blend of soul and R&B. A solid comeback for someone who’s grown from a teen girl into a woman.
