Review Tea: Ka’Mel “What Do I Do? “ EP released

I like to use my music and love stories to help others on their journey of love or healing. – Ka’MeL

Commentary has been abridged by Ashley & Debbie.

There’s a pop artist on the rise whose sultry music speaks to both new and old souls. Artist Ka’Mel Lauryn provides a rich, gorgeous sound that— coupled with the intense, meaningful lyrics— makes for a thought-provoking listening experience.

In her new single “What do I do,” Lauryn provides her perspective and touching insight on the conflicting emotions one feels when in a relationship. The song holds a compelling melody, sucking listeners into Lauryn’s world of heartbreak.

Ka’Mel’s first single from her upcoming EP

Ka’Mel articulates the confusion and constant overthinking that a woman can go through if things are unsure or there is a lack of communication from the other party. She is entirely aware of her emotions and what she wants, but it doesn’t feel reciprocated. Therefore that leaves her confused and not knowing what to do; hence ‘What do I do?’ which is her song title and Chorus. It’s also one of those songs that stick with you, and it’s quite catchy. I found myself singing ‘What do I do?’ even as I was writing this- (prolong the ‘do’- you’ll know when you listen to the song).

Listening to the song reminded me of the mixed signals that have men and women overthinking in their relationships, ‘almost relationships,’ also known as ‘situationships’ or as Jada Smith calls it ‘an entanglement.’ Men! The 21st Century should probably have its Dictionary. Is there one already?

All in all, Lauryn’s music could appeal to a wide range of listeners, telling an age-old story of relationship turmoil while adding a twist of her distinct sound to the mix. Although her music holds a similar groove to that of artists like SZA and Ari Lennox, her lyrics provide insight into her unique perspective on love, and through her songs, it is clear to see she is making a space within the genre for her words.


Ka’Mel Lauryn’s single was released on July 8th, 2020 and will be on her EP ‘Love Playz’. You can stream it on all platforms.
