Appropriately named, Cupid sees Orisha’s voice carry alluring lyrics along a liquid flow of reggae inspired instrumentals and infectious dance numbers. With an ample selection of hot-under-the-collar content mixed with feel-good vibes.
Simply put, the lovechild of reggae, dance and electro Orisha’s Cupid album stuns. Filled with ground-shaking bass lines, stadium synths and spine-tingling vocals, the singer’s latest body of art is sizzling hot, yet her story-telling lyrical style easily transports listeners. Orisha’s leading single “Beautiful Sin” was released prior to the album with her reggae remix making huge waves in the US and overseas. The pulse-racing music video for the single was as much of a fan favorite as the song and nabbed features on a plethora of music blogs and web sites.
The artist’s follow-up single “Make Me Moan” is a smooth, cool groove packed with attitude and spunk like the singer herself. Without effort, the fire cracker glides over the beat with dynamic harmonies and catchy hooks throughout the album. Each song flows into the other, but gives the listener a different side of the singer, from her guarded to more vulnerable states. Orisha creates a clever mix of genres and injects her own creative magic on her album Cupid. “This [album] took almost two years. It is a love child who for real almost got me killed in a process. I called it Cupid. Be safe and dream big and wild,” Orisha explains about the process of making the album.
