new music – Nakia Henry

February 18, 2010

Nakia Henry

Last summer, I went to a party at a florist on 125th in Harlem (Pollen Nation; stop by when you get a chance.). It was a networking event and I knew the people hosting the function, so I decided to stop by at the last minute. When I walked into the space, they were announcing the special musical guest. A singer at a networking event? Work, Harlem! That’s wassup. I stood there, lost, as Nakia Henry took the mic and introduced me to her molasses-drenched vocals. Being the music aficionado I am, I was immediately in love. Two songs, and it was over.

Her debut project, Remember Me, came out in late summer 2009 and is available on CD Baby. I’ll wait while you click the link and make the purchase. Go ahead…

… you’re back? Okay, good. So, here’s the “new” part: A remix to Lily, track 2 on the album. Click here to to hear it.

Let me know what you think. Oh, and she is performing at Gospel Uptown in Harlem on Friday night [02.19.10] at 9 PM. Follow her on twitter for more information (@AfromanticNakia).
