Good vibes and nostalgia fuse beautifully for this stylish and classic RnB offering from Cape Town artist and songwriter Carmelita.
Leading with a simple yet satisfying soundscape and chord progression, Got You stands tall on the strength of Carmelita’s leading voice. Meandering its way through various melodies and flows, from verse to pre-chorus to hook, the artist’s voice has a certain delicacy and confidence alike to it – showcasing genuine emotion yet a simultaneously faultless ability to drive with precision and melodic embrace.
There’s a kind of Ariana quality to the voice, but there’s also a subtle boldness to it that leans more towards the vocal legends of yesteryear. The very style and setup of Got You also tip their hat towards the bigger names of a simpler era, whilst making sure to hold close to clarity and a crisp, refreshing production style.
A really well crafted pop-RnB single, with a heartfelt and catchy hook – a strong introduction Carmelita as an artist.
