HEBA heats up the summer with classic R&B jam OURS
HEBA is an underground gem in her city of North Hollywood. She is a one two punch, able to sing and even spit some bars. She drops music sporadically, and today we've been blessed with her most ambitious song yet, OURS.
She calls it "a little silly," but this is one of the fiercest summer jams I've heard this year. Heba has strong songwriting skills, first taking us through her movie date with her man, then telling him she wants to "make love in the city in the summertime." This chorus is repeated for some time, but never gets boring. She encapsulates the beauty of when the sun goes down, and the night is still.
Fun fact: Heba recorded this while sick with tonsillitis, which surprised me, as her voice sounds pristine. Super producer Ohini Jones harnesses the best of 90's R&B for a slow, downtempo instrumental.
