Anyone in the mood of a little hump day R&B? If so— and even if not—you need to get familiar with the name Aby Coulibaly. Our newest addition to the site comes to us all the way from the Emerald Isle, but her latest single, “Long Nights,” is a tune that anyone from any corner of the globe can most certainly get behind.
While this is only the Dublin-based artist’s third release, her songwriting is that of a seasoned vet—an ode to the natural talent and passion for music brimming inside her. Aby does not shy away from unpacking complex issues in an impossibly smooth manner with her gold-tinted vocals and candid spoken-word rap. This vocal prowess is only enhanced with an enticingly breezy rhythm of warm resonant keys, rolling bass, and a pleasantly calm drum kit—all produced by fellow Chamomile Records member, Moyo. This contrast of deep topic and lightweight production is accented by the light-hearted music video that accompanies the track.
This Irish up-and-comer has heaps of potential in her corner. She’s founded her own label, Chamomile Records. She’s gifted with a deep well of talent. And she’s committed to doing music her way. It’s hard to stop someone with those pieces in play, but then again, why would you even want to? Stream and watch Aby Coulibaly’s irresistible new single, “Long Nights,” below. Enjoy!
