Ex FNT blogstar, SeñorScoop, pushed this track in front of me a couple weeks ago.  He said dude, “Listen to this chick.  She’s the next Rihanna.” I took it with a grain of salt (as I usually do) and gave it a listen.  Decent, good at tops.  I was wrong – this song is magical.  The 22-year old Cuban-American boasts vocals equivalent to Rihanna’s deeper notes, continuously delivering honest, edgy lyrics over a slow piano driven production.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs.  Oh, and if it’s any indication that she’s destined for success, Sylvia Rhone (arguably one of the most powerful women in the music industry) was the one who gave her a platform and eventually signed her to a new division of Epic Records, Vested in Culture.
