Kabwasa – “Is You Is”

Kabwasa tries to figure out what’s going on with his girl on his new single, “Is You Is.” A blaring trumpet riff sets the tone early, while he interpolates Louis Jordan’s “Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby” on the hook to add a touch of soul to his earnest bars.

The song is Kabwasa’s third single of the year, following up “Light” and “Function.” Last year’s Louder for the People in the Back EP showed the full range of his abilities, featuring groovy production as well as a conscious edge to his lyrics.
