“I know you love me. I don’t need proof.”

“What You Don’t Do” by Lianne La Havas | Before I get accused of wrecking childhoods for being not-so-complementary about their choice of pop tunes, I’ll switch to something less mainstream. Lianne La Havas is also turning 30 this year, and good timing, because a few weeks back (calling it “last year” is too much?) I rediscovered this song. I missed the confidence and the swagger of this song; I ended up going back to her two records and enjoyed a couple of hours in bed with them. Is asking “whatever happened to her?” too much? She hasn’t entirely disappeared, but it’s been a while since the release of Blood, and being taken under Prince‘s wing before his untimely death must be a sign of confidence from the cosmos. Lianne, we need you back. Maybe as a birthday present to me, too? [NB]

Got something?
