“The line between R&B and Soul is carefully blurred with mellifluous vocals by Staasia Daniels. The young singer propels listeners into a state of utter bliss with airy vocals on aggressive 808’s… It’s only a matter of time before Staasia gets an opportunity to truly shine.”
“In fact, I’m willing to bet money that this soulful R&B crooner is the next big thing coming out of Toronto. She’d probably kill me for saying that, not because she doesn’t believe in her talent, but because she’s not one for bragging.”
“R&B has never sounded sexier. One of the smoothest projects we heard all year, full of chilled out r&b flavor reminiscent of Aaliyah and Brandy. We are sure we will be hearing way more from the talented songstress.”
“Staasia Daniels has quietly established a ‘one to watch’ tag for a collection of singles and videos in the past few years… Daniels is deserving of all the attention that’s coming her way.”
