We are digging this new single from soulful singer Terry Dexter, who is set to release a new album this Summer. This beautiful and talented singer and actress, who is originally from Detroit, has been on the scene for sometime and we are happy she is returning so strong. While this single feels classic, we are skeptical about radio’s acceptance.
This tune feels like you have heard it before but not in that overly repetitive way like the radio. She lets the groove breathe but then fills in the silence with sexy vocals and compelling lyrics. In this song, she expresses a lot of the hurt feelings that many women have regarding relationships gone wrong. She ends the song with some good advice to me. In short, recognize when you have a good woman and appreciate her.
We really hope this is the one that puts this sister over the top. We’re on board and look forward to more.
Well done! Cop this one!
