K’La – Sweetest Poison

Pulling off a Frank Ocean remix is something that most artists could only dream of but then again, K’La isn’t most artists. Having kept a fairly low profile since her 2011 breakthrough mixtape The Coldest Winter Ever, the Def Jam rapper turned singer is back doing exactly what she does best, putting a female’s perspective to Frank Ocean’s Andre 3000 assisted Pink Matter, adding a sultry, progressive, slightly dark vibe to the Channel Orange fans’ favourite.

K’La was one of my favourite new artists to come out of 2011 and with her first non-mixtape single dropping back in October, the Nas assisted Blame, and now this, both of which have demonstrated a maturing in style, be expecting to hear a lot more of her going into 2013! In the meantime though, stream and download Sweetest Poison below and if this is your first time hearing of K’La, I’d highly recommend checking out The Coldest Winter Ever right here also.

    I actually listen to K”La and own “Coldest Winter Ever” as well as her most recent mixtape “Freedom”. She’s been very good at remixing songs but making them her own and no song represents that more than her popular “All Your Love” remix of Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low”. While this track here isn’t a favorite of mine by K’La, I absolutely love the fact that she made this song her own instead of mimicking Frank. For as much as I’m a K’La fan—I’m a Frank Ocean fan to the highest degree and my ear is very funny when it comes to other people singing his songs (i.e. Brandy covering his “Scared of Beautiful” track—just horried). This is the 1st time I’ve heard a Frank Ocean cover and felt like, “Okay, that was a cool effort”. It’s a sweet song—nice track to just vibe to in the dark of the night just before you go to bed when you’re sad and don’t have any Sade readily available or just need something different, haha. Go K’La! You remain consistent with the quality of work and keep your fans fed and I know you’ll be successful! Glad to hear your poetry again a well. : )
