It’s funny how the music industry is ever changing and finding its role marginalized, yet many of its practices are still present and extremely necessary. Case in point : I recently shared the latest Cha’keeta B single, Pull Up, and one of the highlights from that track was the assist from Austin-based R&B newcomer Kiki Ambrose. Cut to a week or so later, and like a consummate professional, Kiki Ambrose had a debut single and video ready and waiting to drop. Numb is an exploration of how that natural physical and intimate attraction that occurs between people can be so all consuming that it literally turns the volume down on the rest of the world. The video, produced and directed by Cooly Films, bolsters the song with vivid and colorful visuals that’ll have you feeling the need for some sexual healing before you even realize it. Don’t sleep on this one, especially if you have a soft spot in your heart for soul and R&B… leave a like and a comment if you dig it, and spread it around for all to enjoy.

Many people are finding themselves having to face problems that have always existed while trying to survive in the shadow of COVID-19. For Suzanna Choffel, who self-admittedly knows her problems are lesser compared to those of many out there struggling, found that these times brought up ideas she explored in 2019 while preparing for the birth of her second daughter. During her first pregnancy, the red tape and games of health care opened her eyes to the true nature of the American health system, how politicians give lip service to the industry, and how it impacts women in particular. These ideas manifest as Good Problems, a dual attempt for her to recognize the bigger problems in the world and to inspire those going through them. As if this effort was not enough, $1 from each sale of this track will go towards the ACLU and their efforts to even the playing field and make life a bit easier for everyone. Support if you can, but definitely give this one a listen regardless of whether you can support or not, as Suzanna Choffel‘s immense talent cannot go ignored.
