Bajan singer Lagoon Wavey sends us off into the depths of this lazy Thursday with a calming vocal tone that can make you want to fall deeper in love with who’s in front of you. Inspired by the way women’s skincare rituals, the Barbados-native artist sings about it being hard to focus when the love of his life is in the room because she looks so damned good. “Skin so smooth”, he sings, the Indie R&B crooner celebrates the texture and clarity of her flawless skin. If you’re a fan of PARTYNEXTDOOR like me or anything that sounds remotely like that brand of R&B, you might like Lagoon Wavey’s ‘Aloe Vera’. To me, it kicks off like ‘Closer’ by the beautiful Oakland-native singer, Goapele.
