Kemi Ade Keeps Cool in "Honest."


Odd Nugget Social-done

Love on the rocks and thoughts uncensored... Kemi Ade's "Honest." is all passion and pondering.

"...Keep me up all night."

Head immersed in a pillow; you're down and its downy folds feel hollow.

You know he'll return. You can't refuse him. Can you?

He knows the drill. No deal. This time, it's over.

"I can't even complain."

"Honest." drips honesty with candid creativity. Kemi Ade holds nothing back with adult-rated, unadulterated candor. Lyrically, "Honest." flows through anger and frustration to understanding and nirvana.

Soulful singing floats on a current of smooth, satin sounds. Guitar notes like celestial harps, chimes and bells like spilt sunlight and phased keys with tailwater wobble combine to make Kemi Ade's track a true coup.

Something like Jazmine Sullivan's "Insecure", "Honest." hangs on hangups with crisp mellow style. So much to say, and it's nothing but cool Ade brings to bear.

If soulful R&B sounds sweet, this song will suit your tastes nicely. Listen and enjoy.
