Just in time for your summer celebration, South African female emcee Lorreta drops her hit single titled Mood.
Backed by vintage and tightly produced track, Lorreta’s flow was serious business from the get go, letting you know that she’s got the flow and ready to have fun.
The song aptly titled “Mood” is one of those new, yet familiar rhythm that is comfortably played to a busy dance floor, yet at home on a sunny afternoon barbecue.
Lorreta can be described as an individual that is not only equipped but truly destined to impact this generation and the next. Her debut single “Mood” is a creative rendition of rap legend Tupac Shakur’s “Do For love” track playing homage to 90’s RnB, Hip-hop and local Kwaito greats TKZee.
