This time she’s advancing her album “The Eargasm”
This is not your average R&B record. The content of the album touches on a wide array of issues near and dear to the singer: from gender inequality to self love to her resistance to social norms, this loud and proud bi-sexual woman holds nothing back. The emotive sweetness of her voice, the rawness of her lyrics, and Green’s hard-hitting beats offer a delicious musical contrast. Corina recently released her first single, The Familiar, along with a full-length music video shot entirely in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn where she now proudly calls home.
Internationally acclaimed BackWoodz Studio resident engineer Willie Green handled the bulk of production. Green, typically rooted in edgy independent hip-hop, took a delightful departure by sketching Corina’s unique soundscape.
This sort of departure is a common theme among the guest producers featured on the album. The unique involvement of hip-hop based beatsmiths, from Has-Lo, the critically hailed Philadelphia MC/Producer who gained accolades everywhere from Pitchfork to XXL, to Steel Tipped Dove, the highly buzzed about Brooklyn producer known for his work with Kool AD of Das Racist and Big Baby Ghandi, has created an entertaining, hard to pin down, and unmistakably original sound. Rounding out the roster on the boards is Connecticut’s Dirt E. Dutch and Brooklyn’s Urban Miracle. Musical contributors maintain the effort’s diversity, with LA-bred female MC Eagle Nebula dropping a guest verse on the standout track Love, Love, Love!, Dan Costello of Kale Records joining Corina on the piano for the stripped down gut-wrencher Royalty, and Jesse O’Neal providing guitar on the album’s bonus track, a surprise cover of D angelo*s Me and those Dreamin Eyes of Mine.
An across the board dynamic offering, The Eargasm is certain to be the defining moment in Corina Corina’s burgeoning career. Unique yet accessible, the Eargasm will provide just what its title offers.
