Ayo

Folk-soul chanteuse Ay? emerged as one of Europe's biggest new pop stars of 2006 with her breakthrough debut LP, Joyful. Born to a Nigerian father and gypsy mother in Cologne, West Germany, on September 14, 1980, as a child Ay? absorbed the musical traditions of her parentage as well as influences including American soul, reggae, and Afrobeat, all staples of her father's extensive record collection. Ay? first studied violin before moving to piano and guitar. At 21 she relocated to London, later dividing her time between Paris and New York City and earning attention while opening for neo-soul kindred spirits including Omar and Cody Chestnutt. After recording a five-song demo reel, Ay? briefly receded from the live circuit in late 2005 to give birth to her first child. Early the following year she signed to Polydor, and with producer Jay Newland completed Joyful (the English translation of her Yoruba name) in just five days. Buoyed by the lead single "Down on My Knees," the album fell just shy of the German Top Ten. In 2008, Ay? opted for the Bahamas to record her sophomore album, Gravity at Last. Produced once again by Jay Newland and again recorded in just five days, the album went on to reach the number one spot on the French album charts. 2011 saw the release of her third album. Named after her daughter, Billie-Eve was once again recorded in five days with the help of rapper Saul Williams and Lenny Kravitz collaborator Craig Ross.~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Her voice is absolutely incredible, and the heart behind it is honest and joyful. Ayo is one of my absolute favorite artists.

If she is not good enough for german top10 then I want to know WHO is.
AMAZING voice, One of my favorites, and if you want to know another great you have never heard of, look up MEIKO KAJI or The A LA Menthe. Singers like AYO prove that MOST PEOPLE VOTING for top10 HAVE NO TASTE, I feel priviledged to live in the time of Ayo.

Yeah she is a talented artist. She's got reggae flavor in this compilation (joyful). Had I not heard her on Pandora she probably would not be in my collection. Pandora's got it going on. Keep em coming P.
