Often being compared to greats like Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, Empress Naima is assured to make major contributions to R&B and Soul music. Breathless, her first single from her forthcoming debut LP Soul Beautiful, is reminiscent of the classic neo-soul music that was made in the 90's. It's an homage to the pioneers of contemporary soul music with it's live instrumentation, funky drum rifts, and minimalistic keys under an elaborate vocal line. This coupled with the earthy warmness of Empress Naima's mezzo-soprano voice and her passionate delivery makes for a very refreshing listening experience. She finds musical inspiration from the things that she and her loved ones have experienced with love and life and she is anxious to share her unique views with the world.
