Baeble First Play: The Shimmering Soul Pop Of Maya Azucena
  • TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2016

We don't get enough good funk/soul pop these days. Maybe it's cause I grew up on my family's Michael Jackson records, but we don't hear nearly enough dance-pop that shows genuine craft and instrumental ambition anymore. And that's why I'm grateful that I was introduced to the music of Brooklyn performer Maya Azucena.

We've got the exclusive premiere of Maya Azucena's latest track, "Favorite Song," which is a sparkling fusion of soul, R&B, and maximalist pop. Think Michael Jackson with a touch of Janelle and a healthy dollop of old school Whitney and you get the picture. The track is off of Azucena's upcoming LP, Unleash Me, which is currently lacking a proper release date but you can guarantee we'll want to hear more of it once it rolls around.
