Video: Akua Naru "Poetry: How Does It Feel?"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


We leave you for the weekend with this silky jam from Ghanaian-American Akua Naru, best described by Okayplayer's Eddie "STATS" as a "wordsmith [who] slides her voice from singing to poetry to rapping in a style you would be hard pressed to fit in any one of those three lanes." It's got all the undulating synth grooves, thick basslines and raspy speak-singing to relax you into weekend hang-out mode. "Poetry: How Does It Feel” is the third single from Akua Naru's debut LP The Journey Aflame.
