Got soul? Soul is one of those types of music that tells stories through song – sometimes you may even find yourself being able to relate to certain experiences a soul singer croons about. Now there’s a new soul-stress in town. Her name’s N’dambi and her goal is to sing about issues some other musicians may be worried about bringing into the open.


Soul Story

In her latest album, Pink Elephant, soul singer N’dambi wanted to write about the elephant in the room that people see but refuse to talk about. Her songs mainly speak about observations she’s made rather than experiences from her own life. For example, one song on the album called Nobody Jones is about a girl with big dreams who won’t let her humble beginnings stop her. Another track called L.I.E. is about a man living a double life. And Ooo Baby is a smooth-grooving tale about reconnecting with a former flame.


The daughter of strict Baptist ministers in Dallas, Texas was only allowed to listen to gospel and country growing up. Church was the center of N’dambi’s family life and there was no middle ground. Popular music was forbidden but it eventually trickled into her life and started impacting the young singer.


Her independent streak led N’dambi to college and a degree in English and creative writing. She then sang back-up and collaborated with another rising soul seeker, Erykah Badu, while slowly building a fan base. She released her debut solo CD Little Lost Girl Blues in 1999.


Video: Can’t Hardly Wait By N’dambi

N’dambi’s lead single Can’t Hardly Wait (watch the video, below) is about being in a relationship that’s gone sour and how hard it is to be true to yourself and get out of a situation like that.

    • Old School!
    • New school rap is way better.
    • I like both.
    • I don't listen to rap music.
