First Listen: Nyla Thorbourne Of Brick & Lace Releases Solo Debut, Innuendos Abound


Remember Brick & Lace, Akon’s first signee act to his Kon Live Distribution label? The dancehall/reggae fusion duo of Jamaican¬†sisters Nyla (formerly Nailah) and Nyanda Thorbourne dropped off the mainstream music radar after releasing a pretty solid debut album featuring one of the most ubiquitous singles of 2007, Love Is Wicked.

It’s 2013 and younger sister Nyla is making her first move as a solo artiste with Stand Up, a very sexual reggae track on which she asks her man to, ahem, “stand up” in more ways than one. Is the new single going to catch fire or are the sparks for nothing? Listen below.
