Giving Mad Love To Elli Ingram
Monday, June 17, 2013
Elli Ingram proclaims that she can turn your frown upside down in her brand new song, "Mad Love", and you know something? She's right. I was feeling a little of the Monday-Can't-Get-It-Together-Blues till I heard the swaying, melodic mid-90's R&B inspired beat (think Madonna's Bedtime Stories "Forbidden Love" mixed with TLC's Crazy Sexy Cool era) and in an instant my grouchiness just dissipated. Ingram has already made eyebrows raise after she did an amazing rendition of Kendrick Lamar's "Poetic Justice" and at the time we wondered if she had anymore tricks to pull out of her hat, well, today she dazzles with a song about loving those rowdy bad boys. Plus, any song featuring a saxophone in the mix automatically gets Brownie points from me and this track is nicely laced with that smooth sound.
Be prepared for Ms. Ingram's debut EP, Sober to take flight soon, as she is one fierce femme on the rise.
