J. DAPHANEY (real name Joaquina Daphaney) is a real soul singer from Chicago’s south side. Ms D boasts a decent CV. She’s sung BVs for David Cassidy and worked with UK chart toppers MS1 Project. Out on her own she debuted with an album in 2018 and she’s enjoyed two UK soul chart hits – ‘Love Star’ and ‘Can’t Wait 2 Luv U’.
Her latest single is a tough, R&B-ish groove, ‘Supa Love’ on which her powerful vocal is the highlight. Soul purists will probably baulk at the (anonymous on my copy) rap, but that, as ever, is their loss! Out now!
