Wanna know what's in heavy rotation on my iTunes? "Emotional" by Snoh Aalegra. This may be in part because Notion Magazine calls it, "the best single they've heard all year." That's a mouthful. But to tell you the truth, the words aren't far from wrong.

Swedish by ethnicity but apparently soulful from birth, Aalegra's vocals have been compared to Amy Winehouse. And while they both have a smoky element to their voice (and Amy remains one of my favorites), Snoh Aalegra's voice is uniquely her own. It's a fusion of jazz, soul, and blues as she mulls on her latest song, "what if he hurts me?"

The track was produced by RZA and together they are clearly a formidable duo. The ditty is enough to make Aalegra claim that she feels "a fever coming on." One listen to this perfect concotion of mid-tempo funk and you'll feel it as well. I can't to hear what else she has in store for 2015. 

Got any doubts? Check out what Okayplayer and Revolt.tv have to say about Snoh Aalegra.
