Novel – F*** With My Mind

Capitol Records’ Novel, has written for some of the biggest names such as: Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis and is currently on his way to London to work with Lemar, however, with this track, he shows why he deserves to make his own mark on the industry as an artist.

Rarely would anybody put such a title to such an instrumental, yet Novel pulls it off effortlessly, the song itself is powerful, soothing and full of emotion, musically it reminds me of the classic neo-soul efforts from the likes of Anthony Hamilton and Musiq Soulchild, however with most songs these days being sugar-coated, it is extremely refreshing to hear something with a bit more edge. A talented songwriter, Novel provides vocals to match, you can hear the Prince influence throughout the change of tone, one of the most recognizable elements missing from modern day music has been ‘soul’, this is not the case with this song and definitely not with Novel, listening through his collection, the singer, songwriter and rapper, displays nothing but reality and enough soul to re-kindle anyone’s lost love for music.
