Hip Hop soul-R&B artist MODLEE has unveiled her new album, SOUL URGE, which was released via Disques 7ième Ciel.
Marking her arrival as the first female artist to sign with the label, the release is the fruit of a visionary, one-of-a-kind co-production alongside producer, DJ, and long-time collaborator, Vlooper.
A hymn to beauty, growth, and surrendering to your inner desires — the desires of the heart and soul — the LP shares stories tinged with inner healing and bearing a message to the other.
At 11-tracks tall, the album pulses on the foundations of its hip-hop and electro influences before soaring into the expansion of soul fusion styles; SOUL URGE immerses you in a parallel universe of Rhythm and Blues and lulls you with MODLEE’s velvety vocalizations and imagination.
With roots in Quebec and Jamaica, as well as frequent travel to the U.S., MODLEE has been greatly influenced by jazz, soul, R&B, gospel, and reggae.
Weaving together musical styles that have long been marginalized in Quebec throughout her singular journey, such as hip-hop and R&B, MODLEE continues to be a dynamic force contributing to the scene’s rich cultural diversity.
