Little Jackie vs. Little Dragon

Little Jackie – The world should revolve around me

Imani Coppola is no stranger to the music scene and has recently re-invented herself as Little Jackie bringing forth her 9th studio record. Although being deeply rooted in the left field underground her songs have been featured on Greys Anatomy which is a testament to the reach and popularity of her music. This new record sees her taking a more contemporary approach to music by blending R&B, hip hop, and pop for a new sound. July 8 is the official release date for the album, Little Jackie – The Stoop

Not to be outdone is lead singer Yukimi Nagano from the Swedish group Little Dragon. She has been steadily building her rep since collaborating with electronic group Koop and undeniably if you listen to the record you know they are onto something. The song “Test” is a testament to their genre bending style that displays various influences from electronica to R&B but what stands out most for me is the slick understated repetitive dub reggae baseline.
