A couple of tracks from the imminent Amanda Blank album, 'I Love You', have been leaked. To be honest, I'm surprised there's not more hype surrounding the release because, although Blank's mostly been a 'featured' artist on other people's tracks, there's every reason to believe she's poised to become a superstar in her own right.
'A Love Song' is basically an extended version of Diplo's remix of Santigold's 'I'm A Lady' but, in my books, that's certainly no bad thing.
'Make It Take It' is a more upbeat number, sounding like a sassy distant cousin of Santigold's 'Lights Out'. It's different enough from Amanda's other material to suggest she can keep things interesting and avoid the saminess that rap artists sometimes lapse into.
This track, along with previous single 'Might Like You Better', can be downloaded for free from RCRD LBL.
