Selah Sue has only released three albums in thirteen years. She first put her career on hold to become a mother, and later took another break due to depression. However, with every release this Belgian soul singer proves she’s not afraid to try new things and that her impressive voice isn’t afraid of experimenting with new ideas. Persona has no shortage of these new ideas, that’s for sure. With the help of her husband and keyboardist Joachim Saerens and producer Matt Parad, she’s delivered an incredible record. It captures all of her worries and intrusive thoughts, as well as the complexity of human emotions: and she does it across an incredible range of genres. Her single Wanted You to Know, featuring fellow Belgian Damso, gives us a taste of her versatility. Selah Sue finds origiality even in the most clichéd of musical tropes, never choosing the easy option. The best example of this is definitely All the Way Down, a huge, poignant soul track that’s so brilliantly executed. It’s as if she turns everything into a playground: the offbeat drums in Catch My Drift, the dancehall vibe reminiscent of her first album in Kingdom, trap sounds in Hurray and even slightly distorted pianos in Pills… Persona is a broad, rich album, and a real credit to its creator. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

Philadelphia Soul, Funk with a Bow Tie

Neither Motown nor Stax Records! Philadelphia Soul offered a third voice of its own. Created by the Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff duo, this genre - the precursor of disco - made America dance in the early 70s by soaking it in silk and champagne.

Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, Two Chic Guys

There’s more to Chic than just “Le Freak”! In the midst of disco madness, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards embraced the genre wholeheartedly. Preferring to hide in the shadows rather than bask in the limelight, the duo produced a flurry of influential funky hits. Nile Rodgers, the sole survivor of the duo, is now resurrecting Chic after helping Daft Punk on “Get Lucky”.
