Rising Houston artist Inayah is a talented R&B singer, who displays the full versatility and range of her vocal talents in her debut album S.O.L.A.R. Shifting work between leading the vocal pop choruses to even spitting on the rap verses, Inayah doesn't hold back. Still, every song on the 12-track project feels polished and complete. Her voice is soothing when it needs to be, while also having the mastery of switching it into a higher-energy delivery for the more upbeat tracks. Highlights include the slower, more vulnerable "Best Thing" and the confident, catchy R&B pop track "Levels."
On S.O.L.A.R., an acronym for Storytelling Over Lyrics And Rhymes, Inayah's floats between Ella Mai-like R&B cuts and fast-paced R&B records comparable to Tinashe. With writing credits being her own, Inayah makes every track personable and it feels like there is true intention behind every story she chooses to tell; this is undeniably her biggest strength.
