Passenger Seat – Niqa MorOctober 11, 2013
Last month, Niqa Mor released this song and it’s taken me this long to get wise to it. I share it with you now so you don’t have to wait any longer than I did. “Passenger Seat” is a sweet song based around a simple bell synth line over a satisfying hip-hop beat. Niqa Mor’s vocals are the crowning jewel of this song. She sings gorgeous R&B verses accented by touches of harmony. Her lyrics touch on the metaphor of driving through life together, though she hints with the final line that it’s not a simple question of who gets to drive but that partners shelter and drive each other in their cars as needed. It’s a sweet song with beautiful vocals, and a fitting instrumental. Check it out!
