Lamya - Empires  

Although this song was released in the UK, I never hear of it or Lamya these days. Her style is soulful, more like Alicia Keys than Ashanti, with a quirky something that led her to be compared to Kate Bush and Bjork. However, this is a one-off song that's not only great sounding but great fun too. You'll be chanting "Bring me men!" in no time, even if you have no interest in men whatsoever. This would make a great soundtrack single for a movie about an Eqyptian queen or something similar - Lamya pulls off regal demands perfectly. She's a classically trained singer who has lived in Oman, Kenya, Egypt (so my comparison was fitting) and here in England.
