New Jersey singer/songwriter Quiona “Suzy Q” McCollum has the blues on her new single, “If I Cry.”
On the song, the pain of being dumped for another woman has the singer at her wit’s end and debating if she should let all her emotions go. “If I cry / Will it be alright in the morning?” she asks herself.
As you can hear, Suzy’s soulful sound embodies the sass of Aretha, the range of Minnie, and grit of Etta, some of her musical inspirations. With five consecutive wins at The World Famous Apollo Theatre, Suzy is putting her stake in the ground as the future of R&B music, having worked side by side with Wyclef Jean on his new album "The Haitian Experience", U2’s chart toping album Songs of Innocence and deemed by Marsha Ambrosius formerly of (Floetry) one of the best singers she's heard in ages.
