Liam Bailey’s gonna bring a little soul to your Monday with today’s song of the day “It’s Not The Same.” Its songs like this that make me seriously question how pop songs become popular in the first place. This guy has so much raw talent, yet it was made 5 years ago and no one has ever heard of it! In fairness he has several more successful collaborations with popular artists like Chase & Status, Delilah, and Shy FX where he was included as a feature artist. Still, he’s currently on a record label with Sony and he’s only being promoted primarily in the UK for reasons I cannot understand. His style strongly resembles that of classic artists like Otis Redding and Bill Withers, but with a little touch of reggae. Moral of the story with today’s SOTD: talent doesn’t always (and frequently doesn’t) directly correlate with success!
