Afro-German songbird Joy Denalane is not a household name and that's unfortunate because she should be. Her 2008 album Born & Raised is a glittering soul-pop album that featured rap collaborations with Raekwon and Lupe Fiasco.
She's back with a new album titled Maureen and "No More" is the lead single from the collection. The album was originally recorded in Swedish, but for the U.S. release, she when back in the studio and recorded all the songs in english.
The "No More" video features Ms. Denalane introducing us to various people of all walks of life -- young folks, crabby senior citizens, religious people and the average joe. The message -- we are all the same, so let's stop fighting and give peace a chance.
Sounds good to me. Check out the video.
