KeiyaA's debut Forever, Ya Girl (2020) is off-piste, experimental yet deeply listenable R&B that meditates over pain, divinity and self-preservation from an ultra special Chicago singer-producer. She's evocative of early Frank Ocean or Lauryn Hill; standout lines include “who is supposed to ride or die if not I?” She’s gaining traction for her evocative music videos that are as stylized as Solange’s and then some. She promises to have plenty cooking for 2021 and beyond.
