Why is it that the loveliest tracks are typically the shortest? Likkle Bangi's latest track, Not Mine, is a lovely combination of sensitive vocals over the saxophone and lyrics that connect to the pain of unrequited love — what's not to like? “Crying out won’t help anything, I’m trying not to cross the line,” she howls.

Bangi's dominating yet dreamy, sensual and enticing vocals take precedence over the saxophone, keys, and beat. Likkle Bangi's sound continues to evolve, with "Not Mine" serving as the prelude to an Afro-Pop kind of music that is rumoured to be on the horizon. This music demonstrates Likkle Bangi's continued evolution as an artist, and we can't wait to hear what's next.

Jazz great, Stan Getz, expressed one key quality of the saxophone by saying “if you like an instrument that sings, play the saxophone. At its best, it’s like the human voice.” On this track, Caleb Kigozi produced a melody that could sing, dance, cry, and be smooth, but above all, it was emotional.

In "Not Mine," Likkle Bangi and Caleb Kigozi show off their musical abilities. Bangi's calm melodies, which make "Not Mine" confidently breathtaking, dare her listeners to ebb and flow in a utopian trance. Bangi's breakthrough single UDK Featuring Cxnrvd is now a just memory thanks to her latest release, but I don't believe we can complain.
