TheVoice is an independent hip hop and neo soul performer hailing from Denver, Colorado. Her latest studio endeavor, a three song EP entitled “World Wide,” released via Green Soul Productions, recently debuted and is available on all major digital music platforms.
“Hip Hop is truth expressed…. through the struggle. Whether you express that truth through lyrics, dance, style, music, graffiti, language, literature – truth being – who you are, where you come from, what you believe, what you stand for and what you can give back to the struggle,” explained TheVoice.
“Just Stop By,” the opening track on “World Wide,” is perhaps the album’s most obvious showcase of why TheVoice differentiates herself from the noise of her genre in such a unique way. She isn’t just a hip hop artist. The soul influence is abundantly apparent, and “Just Stop By” is an especially suave single that provides TheVoice a platform to exhibit her prowess as a soulful vocalist, too. There are very few hip hop artists with a lovely singing voice. TheVoice is one of them.
Lyrically, “Just Stop By” is very well penned, too. It’s an anthem of self-love and independence wrapped in a love ballad. This is a unique twist, because TheVoice isn’t just gushing over a romantic interest. She’s also making a stance about her own strength and individuality. This sets the tone of the EP as well.
“World Wide,” the second and titular track, is an especially articulate commentary on the dire social and politic of the world that doesn’t take shots across the bow at a specific party or individual. It’s a compassionate song… there aren’t enough of those nowadays, making it most welcome.
The final track, “Hater Syndrome,” lasers in on a culture inundated with judgement and hostility. TheVoice goes as far to argue that hatred is a sickness of sorts, one that’s best remedied through positive discourse and collaboration. The slick production suits TheVoice well, too. She doesn’t just avoid the lyrical potholes many artists drive straight into in the hip hop community.
Give “World Wide” a spin. It’s a superb indie hip hop record with a fantastic message that’s remarkably well performed and produced.
