Singer Chelsea Lenora White, simply known as Lenora to her growing fan base, is a self-described ‘90s baby but a true child of the ‘70s. That love for the bygone era of soul music is very apparent on her latest single “Relax.” The Houston-native has teamed up with her fellow hometown hero Slim Thug to deliver an intoxicating ballad that will help you take off your blues.
On “Relax,” Lenora becomes her Blaxploitation alter ego Suga Love, inviting listeners to let go of the stress of the world and lay back into her funk-based groove. The lush throwback production courtesy of Beanz N Kornbread is filled with bass guitar, horns and drums, with nods to "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You.” Against the arresting bassline, Lenora’s vocals float, often repeating the same lines to put your mind, body and spirit at ease. Slim Thug comes through with his own theme like a pimp in a Blaxploitation film. The whole thing comes together effortlessly and beautifully.
Ladies and gents, slip on your finest polyester outfit, put on your highest platform shoes and pick out your afros to perfection then press play to "Relax" with Lenora and Slim Thug '70s style.
