1501's Rapper,Sanga, Martina Marie
Many know the Ohio transplant, Texas living artist from her car freestyles on Instagram. Which have been reshared by the likes of Jill Scott and countless celebrities. Martina Marie is the homegirl that everyone wants to have because of her realness and infectious personality. Many artists like to put on a facade which is why they don’t last. No one likes fake things or ingenuine people. Marie’s passion can be felt on certain lyrics whether she's rapping or singing about the hurt she experienced from a past lover or life experiences.
Some would let the hurt consume them but thankfully Marie took her friends' advice to channel the energy elsewhere. Not only that but she divulges details that most would like to deny. Her ability to be candid about her motherhood situation is something that every parent can relate to. They tried with all their might to make this relationship work. Despite the red flags that were being shown previously. At the end of the day, she knew it wasn't conducive for all parties involved and chose separation. This is commendable on so many levels because some of us stay in situations that we should've left a long time ago.
After every heartbreak, there’s a period where you get your sexy back. This is where Marie dug deep in her RnB bag for her single “Daddy”. This is a very sensual record, to say the least! It’s the perfect track to play for “mister right now” or “bae”. Marie is putting on for all the regular girls who love catering to their partners. She's making tracks where you can practice for your future or current mister.
F.E.E.L.S is an album that’s perfect for wine down Wednesdays or whenever you just want to vibe out. As an RnB head, I can appreciate all aspects of it. For a good album, it needs to have your relaxing songs, a good heartbreak song, and then a song that makes you want to text your ex. If the artist doesn’t make you want to do this. It’s a questionable body of work, it needs to touch you! Luckily, F.E.E.L.S has all these components for a nice RnB album.
