Last year, YuYme introduced our readers to Selah Sue, the Belgian musician who crossed soul and reggae influences. Since then, she thankfully showed up on Cee-Lo’s The Lady Killer last year, and now she’s set to release her full length album in Europe. The debut effort will hopefully cross the ocean soon. I’m looking forward to it. (via The Maroon Cafe)

    I listened to her album and sadly I wasn’t blown away :( I’m hoping that her label will encourage her to add new tracks for the US release, a’la Ellie Goulding.

      Sigh, I’m sad to hear that. I thought she had a lot of promise and honestly, I think the track that she has with Cee Lo is the best on the album. I hope she gets to work with some producers that can work with her voice, and soon.

    You should check it out anyway, you may dig it more than I did. She definitely has a shit-load of promise, but with today’s competition being so steep (meaning there’s a new female vocalists popping up every second), these artists gotta realize that having one or two hot tracks out of 12 is just not acceptable – especially if we are expected to ‘buy’ it. I love Selah’s voice and I think she has a certain spark that will take her far… Which is why I’m hoping the US release will include new music showcasing some of that initial energy of hers that made me a fan from the jump.
