Review: "Don't Worry" - Winnie Ama
Life is stressful and we all deal with our own demons, but sometimes we are lucky enough to have a person that makes life just a little bit easier. "Don't Worry" by Winnie Ama poetically tells a story of looking back on how far you've come with the one you love. It might not be exactly where you want to be, but the progress made is something to be proud of. You find yourself appreciating your partner even more than usual in these moments of self-doubt because they are by your side to tell you that you'll be okay. Without them, you may not even be where you are today.
Winnie Ama takes us back in time in the soundscape of 'Don't Worry'. Her unique and jazz inspired vocals remind you of a young Ella Fitzgerald mixed with Amy Winehouse, and a hint of rasp like Nina Simone. Old-fashioned soulful and urban instrumentation surround Winnie's voice, bringing a sense of nostalgia. The groove throughout the song makes you feel like you're being transported into a club in the late '40s. Slow and sensual RnB music fills the air, you can almost smell the cigar smoke and whiskey.
