Amoeba Review

10/04/2017

The solo debut from Chicago singer/songwriter and frequent Chance the Rapper-collaborator Jamila Woods is a jazzy, wistful, righteous breath of fresh air. HEAVN is full of warm, organic soul music, standing in stark contrast to the heavy, programmed beats and synths that populate current R&B. These songs are tender, angry, introspective, and political all at once. There’s no room for posturing on an album this honest, and though the trials and tribulations outlined within Woods’ songwriting are the stark reality of the Black American Female, the outcome is always hopeful. Like plenty of her Chicagoan contemporaries (Donnie Trumpet, the aforementioned Chance), the mood on HEAVN varies between uplifting and life-affirming. A blast of positivity in a scene crowded with nihilism and coldness.
