Scandinavian soul: David Jay & Awa Manneh & Aisha

Danish singer David Jay (born and raised in Copenhagen Denmark) released the first music video from the new EP “Evil Cirle” a week ago. The video “4 A Minute” is recorded in London by ANP Media.

Swedish singer/songwriter Awa Manneh (Swedish mother and Gambian father), released the track "Shook, Shook, Shook" on her three times Swedish Grammy nominated debut album called "Sounds Like Me", which was released in 2002.

Aisha, who has roots in Denmark and Somalia, released her debut album "Deeper Than Roots" in May 2012. The song "No One Loves Me Better" is the first track on her album.

  1. There is no reason why David Jay is not one of the top 5 R. & B. MEGASTARS in the U.S.----except for lack of U.S. recognition. Listen to his "4 a Minute"----it's "off the chain"! He's right up there with Neo, Maxwell, Musiq Soulchild, and, going waaaay back, Marvin Gaye. HE WAS BORN TO SING SMOOTH R. & B. LOVE SONGS!

    Same goes for Awa Manneh; I hear a little bit of Janet Jackson, Eryka Baduh (sp.?) Beyonce, even; all the top stateside current Black female singing stars. Again, the only reason she (Awa) hasn't taken her rightful place at the top of the American charts is because of lack of promotion and recognition. Aisha, who speaks English in the beginning of the video, sings WITHOUT EVEN A TRACE of an accent. AMAZING! (Do I hear America calling???????)

    Next year this time I want these names to be as popular as one-name phenoms like, Beyonce, Neo, Drake, and yes, even global music princess, Bajan native, Rihanna. It can happen----with the right promotion.
