Jeffree’s + {[Aaliyah - (Melanin + Timbaland)] x 1/2} = LIZ

Seemingly influenced by 90′s R&B soul artists like SWV, TLC¬†and Xscape and with an affinity for hooky tracks – Jeffree’s signee and R&B newcomer LIZ is a refreshing newbie to the pop/R&B scene.

Her playful “Hush” video shot here in Los Angeles has just enough grit and grime to convince viewers and listeners that she’s not some manufactured addition to the Mad Decent crew (Jeffree’s is a Mad Decent imprint). Perez Hilton even described her as “doing a white girl version of Aaliyah.” LIZ’s channeling of teenager candy soul is SUPERGOOD and certainly may have been influenced by the amazing Aaliyah – but she’s got to release more music and dedicate more time to her before she should be put in the same class as the esteemed deceased Timbaland protege.

Check out her video for “Hush” and jump on the LIZ bandwagon by catching her open for Charli XCX at El Rey Theatre on November 4th!
