"Video: Kamilah Sumner – Never Bring Me Down"

The first single off Kamilah’s upcoming Once Upon A Sumner album, produced by SweatBox Productions. You may remember this joint from Coors Light’s Search for the Coldest campaign, and if you shop at American Eagle, then you probably heard it playing throughout the store all summer. - Fakeshoredrive.com

"Will You 'Love' How Kamilah Sumner Operates?"

Chicago singer Kamilah Sumner is on her grind. The sultry-voiced, Bounce-Worthy songstress recently released the video to "Never Bring Me Down," the first cut off of her album Once Upon A Sumner, which was also featured in the Coors Light Search For The Coldest contest. While that simmers, she's also preparing to put out her second single "Love Operator," a song that will have you bobbing your head from jump. "Love Operator" revisits the Mary J. Blige song "I Love You" (itself a sample of Isaac Hayes' work) to tell the story of a woman looking for love on the hotline. Kamilah has the same hunger and hurt in her voice that made this such a memorable Mary J. track and her harmonies are still on point. I look forward to seeing how her hard work and beautiful voice pay off. - SoulBounce.com

"Kamilah Sumner - Love Operator"

Wouldn’t it be great if all you had to do to find a soulmate was dial zero? On the third installment of her #StayHumbleTuesdays series (and release number two off her next project), soul songstress Kamiah Sumner does just that, calling up the Love Operator and ordering up her dream man. Sweatbox Productions handle things on the instrumental tip, crafting a head-noddable, hip hop-infused backdrop for Sumner’s vocals. Keep it locked for further entries in the singer’s ongoing series, as well as all the latest details on upcoming project One Upon a Sumner.
