"An extraordinarily ambitious, supremely self-confident debut. Ayo Awosika and her producer Scott Jacoby made an old-fashioned soul record worthy of the Masters. Her smart, rich, endearing songs swirl together like a lost Eden. "We Best Not WaiT" is a trapdoor of introspection, confession, temptation, heartbreak, faith and hope - always hope."
