Executives at Warner Bros. Records loved Sabi’s talent and energy and wanted to continue the label’s relationship with her as a solo artist. Now she is pouring everything she has into working on her debut album, which she says will incorporate her love for pop, alternative rock, and urban music. “I’m a pop artist, but I want to bring some rawness and urban swagger to the table,” Sabi says. “I’m really inspired by artists like Lauryn Hill, Bat For Lashes, Florence and the Machine, and Lykke Li. They are strong women with a unique point of view who have something substantial to say. I want to be able to address real issues in my songs, but still keep it sounding fun. It’s okay to have party songs, but I don’t want to make cookie-cutter music. I’m looking forward to everyone hearing what I can do.”
The summer may be coming to an end, but the sun stays shining in California. Rising Inglewood native Sabi keeps the party going with her new West Coast anthem “Cali Love” featuring Tyga. The singer turns up with her girls in the land of palm trees on the catchy track produced Mark J. Feist (Beyonce, Kelly Rowland), which will surely have many putting their top down.
