Love Mae EP
Atlantic Recording artist Lauriana Mae is inspired by the likes of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Etta James and fuses those big soulful sounds with a modern pop/R&B twist. There is so much talent on the EP and it’s just Lauriana Mae with the assistance of producer Kwame (Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige). She doesn’t just belt out the punching pop tunes, she also penned all the tracks.
The EP kicks off with “Money Mae,” which is her moniker, and is something I dare you not to sing along to. “Like a Drum (Beat It)” and “Love” are the other two tracks to make this EP’s cut. “Like a Drum” stays with the same catchy beat as “Money Mae,” while “Love” is the smooth jazz ballad. Even though Love Mae EP is only 3 tracks, it’s a well rounded introduction and there is no reason to not pick up this gem. This EP won’t touch your soul, it’ll grab it and toss it on the dance floor. Now we just have to wait for the full length album. You can pick it up on iTunes here for $2.99!
