YahZarah - Why Dontcha Call Me No More

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: YahZarah
Producer:
Nicolay and Phonte [for The Foreign Exchange Music]
Album:
The Ballad of Purple St. James

Does a song about heartbreak have to sound like as much of a downer as the experience itself? YahZarah, the NYC soul singer previously glimpsed on the hook of Camp Lo‘s Regulate, thinks not, judging by this album inclusion, her first solo feature. Here, the driving, ‘80s-informed boardwork of co-producers Nicolay and Phonte sets an incongruously upbeat (but undeniably infectious) mood as YahZarah asks her soon-to-be-former fella “Why Dontcha Call Me Anymore?,” painfully aware that the answer to that question involves another woman. Ultimately, she bids the man in question adieu without hesitation, voicing a sentiment that anyone who’s experienced a similarly rude romantic awakening will be able to relate to: “I hope you’re happy or whatever… on second thought, not really.” YahZarah’s spirited vocals, along with the compulsively body-moving beat, make this track hard to resist – the talk-box guitar solo on the back end is just icing on the cake. Those who like what they’re hearing can find more on The Ballad of Purple St. James, scheduled to hit stores and online retailers May 4.
