First Listen: Christopher Williams helps Adika Pongo find "You"

(December 21, 2017) A few years ago we introduced SoulTrackers to the uber-talented, European soul band Adika Pongo, via their terrific album, Groovin’ Up. And so we were very excited to learn this week that they’ve released a new single with the great Christopher Williams.

This new track, called “You,” anticipates their new album coming out next spring 2018. It is an homage to the sound of famous artists such as Marvin Gaye and Earth, Wind and Fire. The band tells us:

When we wrote “YOU”, we thought about a male singer performing a duet with our lead singer, Ms Francy. We thought about a powerful voice, full of romantic and harmonic nuances. We thought immediately of a great singer who was an icon of New Jack Swing-Era and famous for his duets with Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans: Mr Christopher Williams.”
