The minute you hear her gorgeous silky vocals, you’ll turn into a fan of Alissa Cruz – at least that’s how it worked for me.

“Royalty” is an uplifting song, not only because of its emotional charge but also lyrically. The track combines r&b and neo-soul vibes, enhanced by the alto sax which spices up the composition even more.

The rising US singer/songwriter explores the soothing yet healing side of r&b while using her experiences as an inspiration. And with this brilliant track, being only her third release, I’d definitely keep an eye on her future projects.
