Sola - About A Boy_cover

A little over two weeks after breaking ground with her “Boudoir” single, emerging Canadian songbird Sola Reign has finally set free her debut EP, About A Boy. But in the event there are still some listeners questioning Sola’s ability to, well, reign, the singer has allowed the full project to be streamed for free via her soundcloud.

Clocking in at exactly seven tracks and a little under 26 minutes in length, About A Boy is exactly what it claims to be – an EP that chronicles of Sola’s experiences with a lover. It begins with “Genesis,” a deeply personal spoken word intro in which Sola questions her judgment and admits that she’s crazy, but only because “she entered into something without a title.” From that point forward, it’s a “dark R&B” ride (to use the artist’s own words) through sensual highs and emotional lows. Lead singles “Boudoir” and “You” are stellar in their own right, but there are certain other gems on About A Boy that can’t be overlooked. Like “Open Letter,” which flips a sample from Usher’s “Confessions Pt. II”; and the Spanish guitar-driven outro “Muerto,” over which Sola’s voice simply flourishes.
