With a title like â€œPicture This,â€ just the very name of Sontaâ€™s new single begins to pique oneâ€™s interest and allows the mindâ€™s eye to wander. Thatâ€™s a good thing. Best of all, the song does not disappoint musically and the visuals are stunning (again, great for a song titled â€œPicture Thisâ€). Letâ€™s get into this edition of the R&B music review.
As first listen, when the track drops, you are immediately brought back to the days of BETâ€™s Midnight soul songs. Not to be dated by that old-school feel in her sound, however, Sonta is undoubtedly a modern R&B artiste. On â€œPicture Thisâ€ he skillfully pairs her soulful voice with a modern flow and seamlessly floats over the often inimitable old-soul instrumentation. Itâ€™s a fitting combination, however, as lyrically, â€œPicture Thisâ€ graphically and skillfully explores sexual liberation, powerful womanhood, and the intoxicating highs of sex.
SPeaking of lyrics, Sonta is one of those rare R&B singers whose wit, and raw â€˜streetâ€™ appeal make her comparable to the best rappers in the game. The singer-songwriter has â€˜bars for days,â€™ and her lyrical take on R&B storytelling is refreshing and welcomed within the genre. With her unique combination of skills, it is hardly surprising that she goes more viral with each release. â€œPicture Thisâ€ is proving to be no different in this regard.
While Sonta is great all by herself, this track has a worthy feature from Ann Marie. Ann Marie is an equally talented artiste whose voice and vocal style flows just effortlessly over the beat. It also dosnâ€™t hurt that she is able to match Sonta as a dancer and visually stunning artiste. The combination between the two ladies made for a compelling song and visual. So much so, that when listening only to the track, the song flows seamlessly from one singer to the next. In a similar manner, the visuals which only feature the two ladies has nothing missing.
