Classic R&B Style: @IAmEdifon with “Let Go”


EDIFON, “Let Go”

Looking to find his way into the contemporary pop/R&B scene is New Jersey-based singer Edifon.  His latest song “Let Go” resonates immediately with its classic R&B style honed from years of listening to Stevie Wonder and Boyz II Men (though his smooth, diverse voice reminds me more of Montell Jordan).  The song digs deep with an identifiable emotional quality while still carrying an urgency through its uptempo melody.  To me the song is begging for a strong remix which could put it into contention for dance clubs.  You can listen to it on Edifon’s site right here and can pick it up on iTunes.

  1. […] I wrote about the New Jersey-based singer Edifon last year when he introduced me to his single “Let Go” and its infectious hook with low key charm.  With his new single “Tell Me” he has amped up the charm with a positive message and a laid back vibe, complemented by Riff Raph’s rap break.  “Tell Me” should really be subtitled “What Makes You Beautiful” if not for confusion with the One Direction song.  Anyone who knows about self-appreciation and self-worth will enjoy Edifon’s message and can share it with others who don’t feel that way.  The singer has also upped the ante with pop-crossover flavour that attracts listeners to singers like Jason Derulo, so you can easily picture hearing it on the radio.  Check out a snipped of “Tell Me” above, but I think you’re gonna like it enough to pick up the full song on iTunes.
