Spending time between both Los Angeles and New York would be adventure enough for most people, but, for Divinity Roxx, this was simply the start of a journey that would lead to incredible musical moments. The Bass Player and Musical Director for Beyonce from 2006 until 2011, a guest on such shows as Oprah, The Today Show, Ellen, The American Music Awards, Good Morning America, and many more, it would be a mistake to think that Divinity is anything less than a seasoned musical pro. With the release of her new and very inspirational album entitled ImPossible (pronounced "I’m Possible"), this socially-aware artist is looking to move some hearts and souls into action.
Divinity is currently promoting the inspirational and beautiful song entitled "We Are", and this is a song that matters and a shining example of the true power that can be found within music and all art, in general. From the catchy beat to the clean and ethereal sounding guitar riff to the perfectly placed vocals that sound a bit like the great Janelle Monáe, Divinity Roxx brings her all to this track, and, as singles go, this was an obvious choice. No doubt this will be an anthem for so many waking souls and for those who want something that is undeniably optimistic and present. The accompanying music video is a work of art in itself and should not be overlooked.
"Break Down These Walls" (featuring Anhayla) is my personal favorite on this incredible album. This is one juggernaut of a song, nothing short of a true inspirational journey, and -- dare I say it -- this is my choice for the next single Divinity should choose to release. It starts out with a slow piano, an emotional bassline, and the smooth vocals that elevate Divinity above so many others. As the song progresses, it speeds up, adds some distortion, and lifts off the ground. To say that I like this song is an understatement because I love this song.
There are so many tracks on this album worth mentioning in detail. From "Stinger" (so real) to the funky "Let U Go" to the worldly sounding "I Like It" (featuring Yani Martin), ImPossible has something for almost everyone.
The impressive and socially-conscious Divinity Roxx expresses herself through power and vulnerability. This is an artist that bares it all in order to reach out to her listeners -- a fearless performer that commands the respect of both professionals and independent artists alike -- and there is no sign of Divinity slowing down her steady rise to the proverbial top. In fact, from here, it looks like she is just getting started.
