Earlier this year, Hil St. Soul brought us her updated take on “Heaven Must Be Like This” by The Ohio Players. Now she’s back with something new and keeps that heavenly theme going on her latest single “Blessed” featuring Noel Gourdin. Following their previous collaboration “No Worries,” we had to wait seven years for their newest song together, but Hil and Noel reunite to give us Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell duet feels.
“Blessed” is a sensuous tête-à-tête between soulmates effusively professing their love for one another. The song opens with a smooth, sensual drum beat as Noel soulfully serenades his lady, caressing her with words of adoration and affection. After his verse and the chorus, he yields the floor to his boo, singing “Talk to me, baby.” On cue, Hil steps to the mic for the second verse to let her man know how happy this kismet, unconditional love has got her feeling. The two exchange joyful declarations about their divinely perfect love, harmonizing as they sing, “I’m grateful for everything you are / I’m thankful for you.” Soul and Gourdin have the special sauce that makes classics. The complementary richness of their voices on this grown and sexy tune makes “Blessed” a heavenly listen.
We are here for a love so good you can’t stop crooning about it, and that is what Hil St. Soul and Noel Gourdin deliver on “Blessed.” Noel said of the collaboration, “my feelings on the opportunity to work with my talented Soul Sister once again, can only be described with one word ‘Blessed.’ We made magic once again.” We couldn’t agree more.
