Vicky Sola Turns The Heat Up In New Song 'Cooked Food'
There are different ways into loving someone. For new artist Vicky Sola, it’d be nice to be loved like you love your cooked food. It may be somewhat weird for some to give such an example, but it’s quite an interesting one too. And with the way the British artist has given that example in her new song ‘Cooked Food’, you’ll be surprised how true this all is.
Blending Afrobeats sensibilities with Pop melodies and soulful vibes, Vicky Sola is giving the audience a great first impression with this new single. Her voice rings with lush sensations combined with catchy and convincing lyrical content. The awesome feeling you get when you nod your head to the solid beat and the creative instrumental that follows, is relatable to any experience you may have lived through when it comes to eating your favorite ‘feel good’ food.
Written by Vicky Sola, and produced by Delirious, who has previously worked with Tinie Tempah, Lady Leshurr, Stylo G, Mista Silva, among others, ‘Cooked Food’ is an infectious R&B/Pop slanted offering, with unmistakable Afrobeats sensibilities, which is backed by lush piano arrangements and bass heavy drums, and held together nicely by Vicky Sola’s captivating vocal and lyrical performance.
Speaking about how the record came about, Vicky Sola says, “I wrote ‘Cooked Food’ when I recently took myself out on a little date, giving myself some self-love and care. As I was eating and listening to the Delirious beat, I thought of how it would feel to be loved how I love my food, and that’s literally how the song was birthed. I have so much love for my African culture, so it’s only right I added some of my favourite African foods into the lyrics – it made for a fun and quirky track”.
Excellently blending her British slant of R&B/Soul with the Afrobeats sensibilities of her Nigerian heritage, BBC 1Xtra and Capital Xtra supported Brixton Afropop and Afrofusion singer, songwriter and performer Vicky Sola is one to watch this year! She kick starts her 2019 with the exciting new music video for her latest single ‘Cooked Food’, premiered via Clash Magazine, and taken from her long awaited and highly anticipated debut EP, which is set for release later this year.
