Kiki Rowe caught my attention a handful of years ago during a previous blogging venture and I’ve been hooked on the Canadian born songstress’ sounds ever since. To this day, I still find myself returning to her debut EP, both for the memories and the angelic sonic offerings the self-titled project provides. Despite popping up with a few loosies last year – including the buzz garnering “Kiki Do You Love Me?” – she’s been relatively quiet in regards to new drops as of late. So, please let “Creep On Me” be a sign that Kiki Rowe is preparing to grace our speakers with new music sooner rather than later.
With her latest release, Rowe provides listeners with a stripped down rendition of Gashi’s “Creep On Me.” While the original record features vibey production from DJ Snake and a guest verse from French Montana, Kiki comes through with a much more subdued, seductive and sensual version of the song. Rather than wrap her delivery in high energy instrumentation, Rowe lightly strikes the keys of her piano as she floats over the track with dreamy vocals. It’s like whispers from the wind, subtly engaging listeners with the airy softness of her voice.
Here’s to hoping Kiki Rowe liberates some fresh music of her own this year.
