Following a lengthy hiatus from music, New Jersey’s own Olawumi returns with newfound focus and “Took Too Long”, the latest release ahead of her impending Moody project.
Despite the droves of singers attempting to emulate a similar sound, Olawumi sets herself apart with unique vocals and honest songwriting on “Took Too Long”. The dark and brooding effort comes across as deeply personal, allowing fans of Olawumi to feel more connected to the woman behind the music.
Exuding heavy emotion over woozy, drugged-out, trap-influenced production from MNTRA, the songwriting savant allows her vulnerability to shine on “Took Too Long”, a hypnotic haze that strongly displays her signature sound.
Look out for her forthcoming full-length project, Moody, and play “Too Soon” below!
