She calls this sound "Vintage Pop Soul" her latest single, "Be Here" and upcoming "Mama's House" and "Fiendin'" fuse this sound. "Be Here" is inspired by the perfect comfortable love personified by American couple, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Saycon's song "Be Here" is the perfect soundtrack to the movie of your life.
