Though she’s already made a name for herself regionally with a slew of singles and an EP, Duval-based singer Ebonique recently released her much anticipated debut long player, alterEBO.

Featuring the previously-released singles “B.O.B” and “Respectfully”–the latter of which has earned heavy rotation on JME’s Saturday evening music programs – the album is a shining, local example of the kind of Millennium-era-R&B that’s currently en vogue, as a well as stunning showcase of Ebonique’s dexterous vocal ability.

The trap-beat-driven “Ville-ains” glistens with local love (neighborhood references, local landmarks), and deft features by fellow Jax singer Kenzie and Spiritxiii of Duval hip-hop collective L.O.V.E. Culture.

All songs featured in our Local Spotlight series can be found on our Fresh Squeeze Playlist and in rotation on our music discovery radio station, The Independent.
