Wow, That’s a Good Song: Nneka, “Heartbeat”

Stop.  Do not do anything else until you listen to this song.

You said you’d be there for me
In times of trouble when I need you and I’m down
And likewise you need friendship
It’s from my side pure love but I see lately things have been changing
You have goals to achieve
But the roads you take are broad are heartless
That wants you make another way
You throw stones
Can you see that I am human I am breathing
But you don’t give a damn

I’d had some of her music in my “to listen to” folder for a while now and am kicking myself for just now getting around to hearing it. Wow. Wow is this some good stuff right here. There are some great beats in her song, but there’s also real feeling, meaning.

Check out Nneka in Chicago this Sunday at the Double Door. Local artist Jerome Holloway opens. I’m digging out my credit card to buy my tickets as we speak.
