Fresh New R&B Talent, Cleo Sol Teases with Promo Single #2
Back in mid April I called twenty year old urban pop star Cleo Sol one of my "Ones To Watch in 2011," and I continue to stand by that statement. Check out this live performance of one of her new songs, "Call For Me," the recorded version of which was produced by DaVinChe (Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah). Cleo Sol's vocals are tailor-made for this style of music, which is very clearly R&B. I'm not sure when this was recorded but you can see her breath when she's singing, so it was obviously a bit nippy out. Still...despite the cold and the extraneous background noise, Cleo Sol maintains focus and composure and makes it sound so completely effortless. I'm amazed. "Call For Me" is the second promotional single to be released by Sol, and the follow up to the electro-tinged R&B number "LoveBass." Look out for her first proper single, due out sometime this summer.
