The songbird of New Orleans is familiar to music lovers in the Big Easy. Her wings soar on her latest single, ‘What I Gotta Do’

Robin Barnes, “What I Gotta Do”

Soul-pop artist Robin Barnes sings wonderful acoustic R&B that will renew your chilly spring mood. This self-described “Songbird of New Orleans” has her own loyal local following, where the twentysomething performer is a mainstay at luxury hotels in and around the Big Easy. And it’s not a wonder why anyone would gravitate toward her bluesy, soulful sound. Her video, “What I Gotta Do,” features two actors navigating the terrain of their courtship from an amorous start to its kiss-off ending, with Robin narrating their journey. There’s lots of tender amour on display, so press play and take that walk down a jilted lover’s memory lane with Robin Barnes’s latest lovely visuals.—Sun Singleton
