- Ugh, those feels again
Born to Iranian parents in Sweden and now based in LA, Snoh Aalegra represents the hopeful global face of R&B. Early cosigns from both Prince and Drake (who sampled her song “Time” for his More Life track “Do Not Disturb”) gave her 2017 debut album Feels extra eyes and ears. Her second album, humorously titled - Ugh, Those Feels Again, digs deeper into the groove she created. Her satin voice doesn’t need gimmicky production, so producers like NO I.D., D-Mile, and Doctor O create an open canvas for Aalegra to attack. And does she ever, rising above relationship woes with sculpted grace (“I Want You Around,” “Love Like That,” “Situationship”). She works abdominals with the body-roller “Toronto,” while “Nothing to Me” raises both heat and BPMs.
