Nneka - Suffri + Focus x U.S.A Tour Dates
First things first, 2009 MOBO award winner, Nneka will be performing LIVE tonight (Feb 2nd 2010) on the David Letterman show. So if you are in the States, make sure you tune in to CBS at 11:35pm EST. In addition, she is currently touring the major cities in America, see the tour dates below to verify if she is coming to a city near you.
Nneka's first USA released album hit stores on Feb 2 and you can get the entire album on Amazon right now. Her album is all SOLID music; I am impressed by the way she transitions from tempo to tempo on 'Suffri' and the sound of all the instrumentals involved. On 'Focus' she goes and spits a few barz and transitions (I had to repeat that word) smoothly into singing. The lyrics on 'Focus' touch on different distractions and stresses that you should keep your focus.

For those who missed Nneka's performance of her previously-posted hit single, Heartbeat, on the Late Show With David Letterman 2nite, here's the video recorded a couple of hours ago. Nneka was on top of it from start to finish. I smell a Grammy sooner than later.
