The young talent who is almost effortlessly transitioning into an artist had kicked the year off well with her rendition of Baka’s LUTMN, Long Live. Though majorly praised, there will be doubters, and maybe the song’s lightheartedness or her dope personality overshadowed the music, with these two new drops however, her ability as an artist is further justified and those doubters proved wrong.
“All of this shit is not new to me, it’s new to you..”
Who Told You has the beauty flow cold over the laid-back production, as she showcases more dimensions of her voice. The lines between singing and rapping are somewhat blurred, especially for those capable of doing both, and Abby clearly can. She’s definitely on course to carve her lane, building upon her online stature, there is no denying she has a look, charisma in abundance and most importantly the music. Cinematic have clearly seen the vision to have taken an interest in her, and this new music shares insight into that, this time next year she could be easily be an XXL Freshman candidate (or surpass it even). As if one song was not enough, she drops another, (a personal favourite) titled, Dangerous.
Dangerous, on a similar tempo, is more sultry sounding, with shades of her confidence and twinkles of vulnerability present within the vocals. Raising the bar, this side of her also broadens the appeal, and has to silence any doubt or negative notion of her ability and potential. As much as I can praise the musicality, the content and expression is important, and you can see these tracks being relatable for young girls, who will naturally gravitate towards her.
A project is definitely in the works, while tracks like these help further establish her sound and presence as one of the hottest artists on the come-up.
