Lincoln Jesser - Baby Boy (ft. Yuna)

1/31/2016 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Good morning and Happy Sunday. Do you, like me, feel you have been kissed by a dementor? Cure your hangover with a bloody Mary and this new tune from indie acts Lincoln Jesser and Yuna. "Baby Boy" is their second collab together (the first being "In My Dreams" on Jesser's 2013 EP), and lightning has struck twice! This is a rare feat and should be applauded. Think of the number of movie stars that work together perfectly in one movie, only to release garbage for the next 4 movies. Exhibit A: Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore. 50 First Dates: YES!! Blended: made me want to put my head in a blender. Anyway, the point here is just because a partnership works once, doesn't mean it will work again. But it does for Yuna & Lincoln Jesser, unlikely yet amazing musical comrades. I would like to close this post with a shoutout to Yuna. I first heard of this girl in 2012, when I came out of a weed blackout to find that I had downloaded her entire album and listened to it three times. She possesses the vocal tranquility of Feist, and her unique sound brings this song to another level.
