A legend of the scene, India Arie is a musician whom you can trust to speak only when she has something special to say. With ‘That Magic,’ she demonstrates the effectiveness of a simple love song – the heart-skipping realisation that your new partner may just be the one.

Classy and showing the right level of production restraint, her vocal dances over the delicate melody, paired with an afro-centric video (starring Lyriq Bent) that is being applauded for it’s celebration of natural hair, and depiction of black-on-black love that is neither stereotypical nor problematic. A champion of good, pure, love and settling for nothing less, it sure feels good to have Arie back.
