NEW SONG: RANDY VALENTINE – BLACK CINDERELLAApril 10, 2015

“Black Cinderella” is the second track that listeners will receive today by pre-ordering the EP on itunes.
Music is best defined by the words of the listeners: This is how a fan on instagram (@eye_an_i) described the song:
“Black cinderella – this is an unexpected emotional and unapologetic ballad from Valentine. But don’t let the title or the fact that this is a classic ballad fool you. The track is not about a ditzy fairytale character. We hear RV express love and respect for his “African Queen / But she born and grow inna Jamaica”. I’m no musician so all i can tell you is the bass on this track is cool and deadly… In “Wake the town” RV says to take the music back to basics. And in my humble opinion, as a fan of the music – he has done just that!”
