Soul Clap: Gloria Prince – “XoGLO” Mixtape


Singer Gloria Prince’s new project XoGLO will take you back to some of your favorite R&B joints!   You may have forgotten about a few of the records that she recreated, but I bet you’ll still remember the lyrics once you hear them.

Gloria created her 6-track throwback mixtape and covered songs like Mario’s 2004 “How Could You,” and Omarion’s 2005 “I’m Tryna”.  Both of those records were two of my favorites! The country songbird also laid her vocals down to cover a  few  songs that certainly haven’t gotten lost in your memory.  Gloria hit the refresh button on TLC’s classic ladies anthem “No Scrubs” and did her thing on Queen Bey’s “Dangerously In Love”.

The best part about Gloria’s throwback mixtape isn’t the trip down memory lane, it’s that you can take it with the sounds of Gloria Prince’s amazing vocals playing in your ear.  Take it back a few times and listen up to her new mixtape XoGLO.
