Maty Soul Does Jill Scott and Lauryn Hill.

June 23, 2010

The good news:  this is not, as the title may suggest, a secretly leaked porn/sex tape of the world’s bohoest threesome (which would probably feature lots of raw shea butter so much incense smoke you could barely see what was happening [Editor’s note: ..thankfully]).

The bad news:  we found video of Maty singing one of my favorite Jill Scott songs.  😦

So you remember Maty Soul, right?  If you forgot, PLEASE TEACH ME YOUR WAYS. Her voice is burned into my dreams and nightmares and I can’t seem to shake it, not even after multiple trips to my neighborhood juju doctor.

Anyway, if you really do need a refresher, Maty Soul is a French “soul” singer who apparently has a talented producer, lots of money for snazzy videos, and one of the worst voices I’ve ever heard which now haunts me in the form of one of the worst neo-soul songs you will ever hear.  Ever.

I apparently did something to piss the universe off last week and was promptly cursed with this discovery:  Maty Soul singing Jill Scott’s “A Long Walk” then bleeding into Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” at some contest. Called “Sankofa Soul.”  Lol.  Of course it would be called “Sankofa Soul.”  Or “Incense Libation” or some such Mahogany card mess.

I actually  find this less offensive than that damn “Herbal Tea” shit.  In singing somebody else’s non-sucky words, I guess it kind of shortens her radius of ridiculousness.

Anyway, here it is.  I’m very sorry.

    Even when you watch this tofu-dashikiist* caterwauling in mute, it’s a train wreck. G’head, watch it. She looks constipated. Apparently she’s confused that with having “soul.” (*Term “tofu dashikiist” courtesy of Mr. Sean Padilla of Cocker Spaniels and Twitteh.)

    the fact that I can hear her inhale between each phrase reeeally bothers me. & also the ways she “sings” the word “relaxation”. her raw emotion is also killing me softly (no lauryn).

    I like all the bad hand gestures an’ … well … body movements.
    Even I can’t call that 2520-dancin’ …

    And I’m beginning to think we missed the French translation on this. I’m Sure this is to be Comedy, right? Please, tell me that’s so.

    Even if ya have to lie to me. I’d prefer that.

    Somehow I thought maty soul was a man. Maybe I was projecting the long hair/bikes of robin thicke’s 1st video. Robin, I’m sorry. I love you.

    Anyway, I finally watched herbal tea, even though everything said I shouldn’t, after finding out maty is a woman. She does not believe in a Key. She’s horrible. I will not listen to “long walk”. I love myself too much.

    She’s ruined “Long Walk” for me. And “Ex-Factor”. She sounds like a fucked up Alanis Morissette impersonator doing a Neo-Soul numbers in the stylings of “Jagged Little Pill”. Everything is now ruined forever.

    This sounds like a campy send off of Neo Soul one would see in a movie starring Liza Minelli or a Wayan’s Bros project.

    aaaaaaah sh1t! I also dislike the ending of every phrase and her “Hiphop?” hand movements. But that d@mn “reelaxashuhOn” just pissed me off! I will NOT watch the rest.
