On the track, Goapele sings, “As bright as the sun (Power) / Just be who you are (Free).”

In an Instagram post, Goapele revealed her daughter inspired “Power.” My daughter is my daily reminder of this,” she said, before offering words of encouragement, Don’t let anyone dim your light.”

On Dreamseeker, Goapele will return to the adventurousness that is reminiscent of her early material.

“I’m a woman, but I’m also a whole person who won’t be confined to any one box,” Goapele said in a press release. Nobody is just one thing. Within any race, within any genre, and within any neighborhood, there’s so much diversity. As artists and especially as women of color, we have to be proud of that. I’m coming from an honest place and expressing the different parts of myself that make me whole.”

Dreamseeker follows Goapele’s 2014 album, Strong As Glass.

R&B legend Toni Braxton teams with her alleged boyfriend Birdman for her a new track, “Heart Away.” Produced by London On Da Track, the edgy tune is an interpolation of Cash Money artist Dez Deshon’s song “Hardaway.”

“He took my heart away, bad man with good manner / Played me like I was a habit / Middle finger, he could have it / I used to dream of livin’ lavish / Now a girl’s a livin’ legend,” Braxton sings.

Birdman raps, “I got something worth more than money / Go to church, free the birds on Sundays / So much pain I took you away from it / When I pull up on you I’m stunting.”
