MP3: Hadiya - Scream
Hadiya Nelson is a Chicago native preacher's daughter with a unique one-of-a-kind voice, an old soul, and a powerful/edgy sound. Her music is dark, edgy, and lyrical. She combines influences such as Aretha Franklin, Kanye West, The Clark Sisters, and Adele. Her music combines classic hip-hop break beats and samples mixed with timeless songs and modern synths. She was once a member of the group Tha' Rayne (replacing Yummy Bingham when she left in 2004) and as a songwriter she co-wrote the track "Sponsor" with The Clutch for Teairra Mari.
