Goapele – ‘Break of Dawn’ (Skyblaze Records/Decon)
Fans have been anything but patient as they waited over five years for Goapele to return with a new album. Finally she delivers the ‘Break of Dawn,’ an album revealing a sexy and sensual side of the “Closer” hitmaker. “I came into this business as a young woman who wanted to be taken seriously for my music, but, now I’m more willing to share my sexiness as well. I realize that it’s possible to be both complex and provocative,” said Goapele.
The album assertion of electric chords and fluid instrumentation allow Goapele’s vocal chord to shine as the main ingredient. The singles from the set “Play,” “Milk & Honey,” and “Tears On My Pillow” have already developed a cult following in a short time.
‘Break of Dawn’ boast production from Drumma Boy, Bedrock, Kanye West, Dan Electric, Mike Tiger, Bobby Ozuna, Malay, and Jeff Bhasker.
