LION BABE is a vibe-heavy tandem hailing from New York’s over-saturated left-field market, distinguishing themselves with a pension for catchy hooks and soulful, sample-heavy productions. Today we’re graced with a visual for their latest single “Jump Hi” featuring an assist from the entertainment industry dynamo Childish Gambino taking over mic duties. Singer Jillian Hervey (one half of the team, alongside producer Lucas Goodman) belts out tenderly with her raspy vox, recalling the vocal stylings of Erykah Badu or Elle Varner. And we all know how Bino feels about those two leading ladies, so it seems fitting to have gotten the opportunity to cosign an act that bears those kinds of earmarks. We’ve yet to receive word on whether a full-length piece might be on the way, but you can bide your time with the uplifting official video for “Jump Hi” from NYC’s LION BABE.
