It’s been said that vulnerability is the root of creativity. Even once such openness is embraced, many artists remain their own worst critic and often question the quality of their craft. Singer-songwriter Kadija Kamara shuns this notion and reminds her fellow creative community to trust their magic and celebrate their unique gift. Her sunny single “Best Moves” brilliantly serves good vibes and inspiring lyrics over a catchy afro-pop style track. At a time when many artists are struggling to find new and innovative ways to maintain their fanbase and attract new ones, the tune offers a much-needed dose of warmth and reassurance.
This latest release follows her 2018 EP Nothing Left To Lose and is yet another example of Kadija’s propensity for positivity. Her sound, which she describes as “alt-soul,” is a crafty combination of both classic and contemporary elements, overflowing with optimism. Whether singing over a track or smiling for the camera, her gleeful energy is apparent and infectious. Having curated showcases and an entire festival for both underground and commercial female musicians as part of her Lady series, it’s clear that the London-based beauty also gets her kicks by paying it forward. With such freedom in both her thinking and her artistry, we look forward to hearing and seeing much more from her.

While there’s no word on whether the single is part of a rollout for a new project, she’s crafted her Show Them Your Best Moves playlist on Spotify to keep us dancing in the meantime.
