Editorial Reviews

2014 release, the sophomore album from the Nigerian-born vocalist,. on SO MUCH LOVE, Douye (pronounced Doe-Yay) pays homage to the mellow blend of silk and soul made iconic by artists such as Sade, Dianne Reeves, Chanti Moore, Regina Belle, and Rachelle Ferrell. Featuring the musical prowess of fellow Nigerian and multi-platinum producer Dapo Torimiro, Grammy-nominated multi-platinum British songwriter Terry Shaddick, guitarist/ producer Chris Sholar and Grammy-nominated jazz keyboardist/ producer Philippe Saisse, So Much Love is a breathtaking tour de force that adeptly revisits the sound of early '90s Urban Adult Contemporary radio with a unique spin. Laced with Douyis smoldering vocals and seasoned with elements of Jazz, R&B, and a dash of spicy Afrobeat, it goes without saying that SO MUCH LOVE is destined to be one of the more feted independent releases of 2014.

The Nigerian born vocalist Douye proves equally adept at capturing the sound of her native land and the sensual sound of adult oriented[c1] soul on her second album So Much Love. The sound of Africa is probably never far from Douye’s heart, even while listening to her parents’ record collection that American soul and jazz artists such as Ray Charles or Rachelle Farrell, fellow Nigerian Sade and Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti.

Douye honors the music of Kuti, one of Nigeria’s most renowned artists, on the track “So Much Love.” The track captures the collision of elements that make Afrobeat familiar to music fans on this side of the Atlantic while remaining a distinctly African art form. There is the percussion and the chanting of “so much love,” where Douye seems to be calling up the ancestors. Both have roots in West African music and in American gospel, blues and R&B. The title track is Douye’s labor of love to an artist to whom she grew up listening and who became an influence not only to her but to artists such as Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney.

Douye displays her ample chops as a renderer of the jazz influenced R&B love song throughout So Much Love. The album starts strongly with the smoldering “Til Morning Comes,” a track that finds Douye setting a scene for romance and passion that will not let up until sunrise. With her smoky vocals clinging to every word, listeners might find themselves hitting the snooze button and asking for five more minutes.

Douye co-wrote the songs on So Much Love with Terry Shaddick, who may best known for writing Olivia Newton-John’s 1982 hit “Physical.” The two show throughout So Much Love that they have mastered the ability of telling a sensual story sans the explicit lyrics that often characterize contemporary music.

Here is an excellent album of Contemporary R&B from a talented singer. Growing up in the Nigerian capital of Lagos, Douyé was raised in a household where the sounds of legends like Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughn, and Ella Fitzgerald were everywhere.

In her album "So Much Love", Douyé continues that skillful soul with smoldering vocals that are flavored with elements of jazz, R&B, and a dash of spicy Afrobeat. One of my favorite songs on the album is "Love Rules" which is a soft and soulful tune that showcases Douyé's rich and expressive vocals. Her voice plays with the accompanying instrumentation in a skillful balance and it's simply wonderful. Well done Douyé.

This album offers everything you'll ever hope for, from masterful arrangements, exceptional lyrics and a voice that angels stop to adore. Douyé captivates you with her magical vocals from the first to the last note. If you are on the fence about buying this album I will have to tip you over, coming from a musician myself. It is a MUST HAVE to any collection... There is truly " So Much Love" and to love with this projects. - dm
