Any word used to describe the sun would do as a perfect synonym for DeAndre Wright. The sizzling Houston native is on a long list of R&B sirens posited to inherit Beyonce’s tiara. But good looks can only get you so far. Luckily for DeAndre, singing is not an issue.

“Freedom Cry,” a new single sure to smack the paint off your SUV, just might be what this budding crooner needs to make some record label throw money at her. When the booming drums call out, DeAndre answers with a fierce request: “Unleash me from these shackles, let me out to be free.” Her music calls for timbre and melodic acuity, and she’s always more than happy to oblige. I don’t expect this one to remain under the radar for too long.

“Freedom Cry” is available on iTunes. Follow DeAndre on Twitter.
