[POP TAKEOVER] Sorry, haters, but I\'ve got news for you: New Zealand, of all places, is really the new hotbed of pop music. After the runaway success of teenage pop sensation Lorde, it’s hard not to hear fellow kiwi singer Karoline Tamati’s 2013 album, Automatic, and question why this show isn’t at, like, the Roseland. Often compared to Erykah Badu, Tamati—who records under the name Ladi6—balances nu-soul tendencies with a more futuristic R&B bent that is equal parts “Royals” and post-chillwave production. She may never be a ruler, but here’s to hoping more people call Ladi6 their queen bee.
