[New Music]: Lorine Chia – Strange Fruit

Listen to this incredible new cut from Lorine Chia called “Strange Fruit,” inspired by the mixup earlier this summer that led to many thinking it was her vocals featured on Kanye’s “Blood On The leaves” rather than Nina Simone’s.

Lorine’s take on the Billie Holliday original was produced by Nate Fox – the Chicago-based producer instrumental in the rise of Chance The Rapper – and is jazz-inspired with a slight electronic edge. The Cameroonian singer delivers the lyrics beautifully, emphasizing and elongating syllables in a manner that simply could not be mimicked.

Stream the track above, and stay tuned for more from Lorine – you’re going to be seeing her name everywhere very soon.
