Our girl Candice Pillay – who you surely heard all over Dr. Dre’s Compton LP (“Genocide” w/ Kendrick, “Medicine Man” w/ Eminem, etc) – is capitalizing on her recent placement by releasing her new EP, The High.
Continuing the wave she started with The Mood Kill last year, Candice delivers five more songs of love, lust and tragedy. An 808s & Heartbreak influence is present, but the South African songstress doesn’t use it as a crutch in any sense. Her vocals are strong, songwriting is off the charts – as proven by Rihanna’s “Cockiness,” “American Oxygen” and the countless other hits she’s helped pen – and with less than 20 minutes on the clock, she offers more than enough to convert this new audience into ongoing fans.
