ALBUM REVIEW: Tanika Charles’ ‘Soul Run’

We review Tanika Charles’ New LP ‘Soul Run’

Tanika Charles is a soul singer from Canada. Her release ‘Soul Run’ has been primarily produced by Slakah The Beatchild, who was one of Drake’s first producers.  The album has a brilliantly funky soul vibe and Charles’ smooth vocals have shades of Rebecca Ferguson’s.

The LP tells Tanika’s brave story of how she fled to Toronto to escape an abusive relationship. She “borrowed” her then fiancee’s car and left rural Canada for Toronto. Since then she has never looked back and now she is ready to tell her story to the world via her music.

The autobiographical album is both inspirational and touching. It gives listeners an insight into what Tanika Charles’ life was like during and after her abusive relationship to her fiancee. It’s a brave decision to share such a private part of her life with the world.

‘Money’ is one the standout tracks on the album and shares the same vibe to something Fleur East would put her name to. But the absolute best song on the record is the fantastic ‘Darkness And The Dawn’. The track has a super sick beat and the lyrics are very thought provoking. It also showcases Tanika’s flawless soul vocals.

RATING: 3.5/5
