Lulu James - Sweetest Thing



Lulu James is a British singer specializing in glossy 80s r&b, citing Sade as a prime influence. Sound familiar? Ah yes, hello Jessie Ware of 2013. While these two girls share a lot of the same musical influences, their voices are quite different. James brings a soulfulness and (I would argue) a better vocal range to the R&b /dub hybrid field, while Ware thrives off a more breathy delivery. "Sweetest Thing," James' best song to date, has a catchy chorus complete with what can only be described as Alunageorge production. Although an up-and-comer in her native England, we will have to wait and see if she breaks America 1D style.
