TURN it UP TUESDAY: Corinne Bailey Rae
Dubbed as one of the hottest females to come out of the UK in the past 20 years, Corinne Bailey Rae, is a force to be reckoned with. She recorded and released an album, while unsigned, in 2006, and singles from that album reached the Billboard top 20. Whats the chances of that happening? She has sold 4 million albums world wide, and is releasing her second album at the age of 30.
Rae has gone through some very tough times, including the loss of her husband in 2008. She writes her own lyrics and plays the guitar. You can feel her heart and soul in every track. Good music is when you can feel that the artists feelings are real. Anyway, you can listen to her by clicking the link below. This track has not been released, the title of this track is "Till it Happens to You". In the spirit of the month of love, Valentine's Day, the song is about relationships. However, its not focusing on all the lovey dovey sweet parts of love, but on how love can sometimes turn cold. Everyone wants to be loved but we rarely think about the bad times you may encounter. She makes breaking up sound good tho! Take a listen!
