Jukebox Friday: Selah Sue - Fyah Fyah (live on SK sessions)

Sometimes, a new talent comes along and lowers your opinion of all the new music you've heard in the past five years.

Right now, that talent is Selah Sue AKA Sanne Putseys, a 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Leefdaal near Leuven. Her intense blend of soul and reggae has made her one of the most exciting new artist in this corner of the world for the past couple of years.

Selah Sue began touring the Belgian festival scene in 2010, with her eponymous debut album appearing in 2011. It peaked at number one in Belgium, where it went to triple platinum. The album was also a hit in the Netherlands and France.

This Friday's track is "Fyah Fyah", performed on Soul Kitchen Sessions (it's French) in December 2010. I will publicly question the sanity of anybody who doesn't feel like going to a Selah Sue show immediately after watching and listening to this.
