Kidä is a Los Angeles based producer, vocalist and seductress. The R&B goddess has the swag of Aaliyah and vocals reminiscent of Sade. Yesterday she gave us a taste of what she's been cooking up after graduating from Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal titled "Girls".

The track begins with a bevy of natural element sounding instruments. Wind chimes glistened in the background as the sound of rain comes pouring down. The intro blends together perfectly together with the tropical percussion of drums - giving the track a slight baile feel. If the production of this song had a video in itself, I would imagine Kidä somewhere in the Caribbean during a thunder storm with pots and pans as her drums during a storm.
Lyrically, the song touches on pretty much every issue I feel in a relationship. It sounds like Kidä maintained her cool by not letting her envy control her thoughts. Except everyone has limits, at some point you have to protect yourself. I appreciate Kidä's raw take on discussing jealousy and insecurities. We live in a world where so many people pretend to not give a fuck on both sides, and often lose the realness of the lust felt when you are in love.
In the beginning of the track, she sings about him "slipping away through her fingers". By the end of the track, she oozes ad libs over the production, and this is where we can imagine she is sonically letting go.
Stay tuned for more releases from the enchantress this year.
