I've heard a lot of good music recently but nothing has grabbed me quite like "Think of You" by unsigned Toronto retro soul singer, Tanika Charles.
Now there's plenty of throwback-sounding soul music going around since Mark Ronson re-popularized the sound with Amy Winehouse, from Duffy to Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings (Winehouse's touring & recording band), but this song, which admittedly isn't new, is the truth! It's the one song I've probably played at least 50 times since T.dot rapper, Masia One put me up on homegirl earlier last week.
Check out "Think of You" and tell me this doesn't touch your soul:

The above video is an acapella version of "Think of You" with Jessica Kaya which is cool but the original is the lick! Hear more heat from 'Mz. Chawls' at her MySpace page HERE.
