Album: Love & Lust
Release Date: June 3, 2016
In Canadian Beats’ interview with Toronto’s Jadea Kelly; posted earlier this week, the singer noted that she “was processing a lot of heartache and pain during this writing process.” Although heartache is not the most pleasant thing to endure, it led to the creation of a gem – Love & Lust. Love & Lust was released via iTunes on June 3, 2016 under Darth Jadea Music and Fontana North. The release contains eleven tracks including the single “Make It Easy.”
When listening to the album, the question that immediately arose was “How did it take three studio albums to hear of the artist?” It is, however, better late than never. I was pleasantly surprised on the level of maturity in song-writing featured on the record. The lyrics are personal and [probably unfortunately] relatable to many. Jadea’s vocals captivate your attention easily through the emotion portrayed. The accompanying instrumentals blend well with her singing to provide a well-rounded album.
It is difficult to establish a stand-out track on Love & Lust. As I am writing this, my favourites are “Good Girl,” “Can’t Outrun,” and “Paper Thin Heart.” This will undoubtedly change after another listen or two of the album. I would highly recommend picking up a copy of the album.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
