After the successful release of her 2015 Caterpillar EP, Iman Europe has found herself back in her hometown of Los Angeles, California putting the final touches on her forthcoming follow-up, Cocoon. During the intervening period of time, she has trickled a number of new singles out for fans of her soulful, hip-hop fusion that continue to attract new listeners. Her song "Oakland" received praise from Bay Area faithful, while "So Cool" is one of her biggest tracks to date. This week, the young singer-songwriter has returned with a brand new song that demonstrates her higher level of maturity.
"the devil be tryin'" is a serious record, one that reveals a little about its creator's current mindset. Iman is facing a number of obstacles in her path, but refuses to succumb to their evil. Instead, she is defiantly fighting the demons back. Although the message is a powerful one, the track itself is more languid in nature. Her out of breath weariness from her battles are nearly audible. However, Iman sounds better than ever and delivers a high quality performance. She soulfully dominates the track, making her victory over her personal struggles abundantly clear. Check out "the devil be tryin'" above.
