French-Nigerian songstress Asa's sophomore release, Beautiful Imperfection, is out today in the U.S. via Naïve Records. The album showcases a shift in the singer's aesthetic from her politically-themed debut to the celebratory 60's soul of the new LP.

At its best moments, the new LP plays like a unique blend of Asa's dual upbringing — a large dose of Western pop with traces of Naija influences.
