Universal Playground’s album of the week 08 – 2020 is Snoh Aalegra – Ugh, those feels again

Iranian / Swedish singer and songwriter Snoh Aalegra is one of the most exciting voices in recent time. Her sound evokes the soulful essence of her idols such as Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, yet lined with an authenticity and raw emotion that is unparalleled and a deep sense of outsiderdom that is largely universal. Her music heavily draws from her life experiences and challenges as a person who’s long felt like an outsider and now coming into her own.
