The new Paloma Faith album has landed.

Paloma Faith

Already nominated numerous times for Best British Female Solo Artist and Best British Album at the BRIT Awards, Paloma Faith delivers the soul-goods once again and is sure to secure her third multi-platinum success. A Perfect Contradiction is a clear tribute to rhythm & blues/soul music.

As I traveled through the album song by song, I felt like I was on a magical journey traversing the decades.

Some of my personal favorites:

#1 – “Can’t Rely On You” (In your face, sassy, empowering, a UK Top 10 hit)

#2 – “Mouth To Mouth” (I’m passing through the ’80s, think Teena Marie or Stephanie Mills)

#3 – “Take Me” (Gospel influences reminding me of Candi Staton or Patti LaBelle)

#4 – “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” (True R&B that cuts to the heart & soul, a UK Top 10 hit)

#6 – “Taste My Own Tears” (Right out of the Motown handbook)

#9 – “Impossible Heart” (Energetic and moving dance. Very ‘Mary J Blige’)

Driving a business toward women 25-55? Paloma hits the target solid.
