Olawumi, the 24-year-old singer from New Jersey, says she's inspired by greats like Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, and Faith Evans. Her latest track is raw, honest, and relatable and will definitely have you in your feels. "Needed" is a love letter that takes us back to the moment Olawumi realized a past love had reached its end.
"This song is literally a snippet in time - it plays out the actual moment in which I realize that things with the love of my life actually might not work," Olawumi told The FADER in an email. "That moment of fragility when you know you have to brace yourself for the pain that lies ahead. It was a lot. Recording this record was a lot. It took a lot out of me."
