Do You 'Wanna Be Down' With Stella Santana's Brandy Cover?


We recently put you onto the Bounce-worthy Stella Santana and her soulful sounds, which are in stark contrast to the music of her father, guitar legend Carlos Santana. While her original music delves into bass heavy, futuristic R&B, Stella shows a different side to her style with a reworking of  Brandy's "I Wanna Be Down." The '90s R&B classic gets a modern acoustic makeover, with Stella keeping things simple with only her dulcet vocals and guitar playing at work. The result is a folk-tinged take on R&B that stays true enough to the original, while straying far from Brandy's signature vocal runs and riffs. Stella manages to pay homage to this quintessential '90s hit, while giving it an update that showcases her distinctive sweet vocals and phrasing. All of which comes together to keep us wanting to be down with this intriguing new talent.
