Watch: One- Esperanza Spalding (@EspeSpalding) on @JimmyKimmel

Esperanza Spalding is her own genre. 

Spalding performed her new song One on Jimmy Kimmel recently and blew me away. I am a new Esperanza Spaulding fan, and it’s because her style can’t be mimicked. Her performance of One is from her upcoming album Emily’s D+ Evolution. While the lyrics seem more like a blues ballad, the electro-jazz sound combined with her falsetto voice takes her audience to another planet. Like the “one” love she talks about in her song, her voice “stops the world and my heart spinning." The lyrics are poetic and it’s complemented with a mysterious composition as well. Puzzling and enticing us, Esperanza has made one hell of a first single that makes her listeners want to come back for more, because only she can deliver it.  Check out the video below and look for my review of her new album soon.
