JUNO Award winner Dominique Fils-Aimé latest album's Three Little Words
Dominique Fils-Aimé today shares the punchy, brass-fueled track, “Mind Made Up” the latest single off her final album in African American music trilogy Three Little Words, just released via Ensoul Records.
Three Little Words is Fils-Aimé’s most musically diverse and eclectic album to date, largely thanks to acclaimed record producer, musical arranger and mixer Jacques Roy. On the album, Roy connects Fils-Aimé’s voice with the multitude of other sounds, from the heartwarming doo-wop harmonies of “While We Wait” to the spellbinding groove of African percussion, horns, synthesizer and expansive bass lines prevalent in first single “Love Take Over.” The album has already featured on Exclaim!, The Globe & Mail, and CBC Music lists for the most anticipated albums of 2021.
