What happens when a Four times Grammy Award Winner, takes a gap of three years? Classic happens. And, one of the most interesting example we currently have is – Cocoa Butter.
Cocoa Butter, is not an unusual flavor but the first single to India Arie’s long-awaited fifth studio album, which is tentatively titled “Open Door“. The first time I ever heard India Arie’s work, was on a track titled “Little Things” off her second studio album called “Voyage to India“, for which she won herself a Grammy Award in Best Urban/Alternative performance category.
I wouldn’t want to disagree with the fact that, India Arie is probably one of the most under-rated songwriter, neo-soul/R&B artist ever. But that doesn’t stop her to bring in more and more interesting, soothing records to treat her fans.
Cocoa Butter, is just another justification of her talent in terms of singing and versatility. Where the over-all production value of the track is somewhat, colossally overwhelming. The seductive voice, with lyrics like ” Your love is like cocoa butter on my heart / Your touch is like cocoa butter on my heart / Your kiss is like cocoa butter on my heart / Oh boy, you’re like cocoa butter on my heart,” .. I mean, nobody would want to miss this one. And, things only gets better from there.
The track would act as the official first single off her upcoming album. Which is gonna hit the stores, somewhere in the summer, 2013. For now, we have an active stream of the track, scroll below to give it a go!
