Deena Ade proves different from the current roster, a music critic said last week. A smoky new voice in the Nigerian music industry. It is smoky, sultry and powerful in smooth runs with unique melodies throughout the record. Deena almost loses her mind in the emotion of Let It GO, but it is a vivid description of confusion in love. She moves from house to soul with ease, although genre-hopping isn’t new from this young superstar. Deena Ade has grown from strength to strength since her last project “The Side Chic”.Once again she does not hold back her feelings. Whether it be anger, need, or sexual desire.
NATIVE MAG “Everything from her sultry vocals to her to the lyrics screams sexual empowerment”
DJ Douglas of TheBeat 99.9FM “The music is honest, something that isn’t being done. Especially with female artists.”
Monstar of Chocolate City “The music provocative and it oozes soul”
Tec of SDC “This is the type of music that is missing from the sphere”
Down has been critically acclaimed and has been receiving continuous support from radio all over Nigeria.
The music on The Cries of My subconscious is a beautiful blend of Neo- Soul, house music, hip-hop, and Afro beats. Deena doesn’t compromise her signature style of soul and swag on the upbeat songs. Topics vary, from wanting and seducing a potential partner on MELO to almost crying on the track LET IT GO to a partner. She appeals to a partner to not play games with her on SHERE and competes in a game of mind LOVER.
All these songs have a common underlying theme of love and pain, as you see in the promo pictures. The music has been heavily influenced by Amy Winehouse, Tiwa Savage, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj. Artists she looks to for inspiration.
The reception Deena Ade has received from blogs, magazines, radio stations such as the Beat FM Lagos and Ibadan, Kiss FM Lagos, Ray FM to name a few. As a result, Deena Ade is planning a small concert of her catalog. This will be happening in June.
