I LOVE this.
Not only is “Why Are You Leaving” by Colette Carr a modern hip pop triumph, it also teams up my favourite urban hip pop group Far East Movement with Colette by way of Kev Nish. I must say too, it’s a perfect pairing. Not only do they both flawlessly mesh together on vocals, but they make quite the cute couple as well – at least on camera.
There is something quite haunting about the piano intro too on this track, immediately it reminded me of old Heart power ballad tracks which again, I loved. Intentional? Don’t know, but it’s surefire brilliance.
All-in-all, it’s so great to see Colette Carr progressing as a musician through her Skitzo EPs. If you loved ‘Skitzo Part 1’ as much as do, you’ll love the fact that ‘Skitzo Part 2’ is out now too…it’s downloading now…
