Madia – Go Get It
When I review new music, I tend to apply my “1-minute” test. I usually put on my favorite pair of headphones, close my eyes, and listen until I feel I’ve reached a point to skip to the next song. Usually that moment happens after about a minute. Sometimes the lyrics grab my attention and other times I’m drawn to the melodies and arrangements. I’m especially excited when I find music that entices me in both areas, which is what happened last week when I received Madia Logan‘s new album, Go Get It. The album definitely passed my 1-minute test because I pressed the play button for the first song Love Again and before I knew it, 30 minutes had passed without me skipping a song.
Madia started her career in choirs and did not start performing and writing secular music until she attended college at Rutgers. Prior to Go Get It, the Philadelphia native released The Limit is the Sky in 2003 and On My Way in 2005. She also has writing credits on Yahzarah’s album, Blackstar. Throughout her new album, Madia exhibits confidence, sincerity, and passion for her dreams. One of my favorite lines is from the title song Go Get It, where she says “I wanna look back and see that I tried. Always moving forward, speak intentions to life.” The inspiration in that song alone is enough to make you want to hear more. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out some of Madia’s videos and her songs Fight for Me and This Love below. If her album connects with you the way I think it will, you can Go Get It from iTunes. I guarantee it will be time well spent.
