GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter/musician Mali Music is on a roll. With a new album due out next week, and the tracklist for The Transition of Mali revealed just days ago, he is preparing our musical palates for something extraordinary. After giving us a sample of the project with tracks "Contradiction," "Gonna Be Alright," "Still" and "My Life," we were already quick to hit the pre-order button. However, now Mali has released yet another track, this time partnering with Philly’s own vocal acrobat and songwriter Jazmine Sullivan, and we can't contain our excitement about his Transition.
The song “Loved By You” is the mellow-smooth goodness that we have come to love Mali Music for. The track itself seems to saunter along just as time slows to a standstill when in the presence of your lover. It’s as if both Mali and Jazmine close their eyes and simply bask in feelings of romance and gratitude as they sing, “It’s so good, so good / To be loved by you.” The sentiment behind the simple hook is driven home with the euphoric emotion heard in their voices. Jazmine literally sounds like love. The care and precision with which she frames every note mimics that of a woman mindful and attentive to the one she adores. This blissful tune is perfection and is sure to get the mood right when love is in the air.
In anticipation of the June 12th release of The Transition of Mali, check out the official tracklist below and pre-order the album on Amazon, iTunes and Google Play after you give "Loved By You” a spin.
