BLACKBOOK PREMIERE: Sultry New Ruth Koleva Single ‘I Don’t Know Why’

 

 

Another Valentine’s Day is behind us, and as ever, it was a day filled with romance, despair, doubt – and in our case, the perfect soundtrack to go along with all of it.

Of course, nothing much changes once the calendar flips over to February 15. Which makes this the ideal day for BlackBook to premiere Ruth Koleva‘s alluring new single “I Don’t Know Why,” which is replete with all the uncertainties that love brings into our already confusing existences.

In her signature smooth, seductive vocal style, the sultry Bulgarian songstress philosophizes, “Need to learn from my mistakes / The mood is swinging with the wind / Now I have to pay the price for letting you inside.” Musically, the track is as sensuous as it is groovalicious, crossing classic jazz stylings with contemporary R&B vibes.

 

 

“Talking about love,” she explains, “my version of it comes with a lot of patience, understanding and being able to give time and space to someone. I wrote ‘I Don’t Know Why’ about the special moments, you have to understand their behavior, their mood swings, to be able to fit in their world. People are unique, and most of us are crazy in our own way. And real love to me is about being able to go through difficult times together.”

Of course, our love for Ms. Koleva (for the record, Mark Ronson is also a big fan) comes only with the demand that she keeps making more music just like this – a demand which will surely be fulfilled when her new album, Confidence. Truth, is released Stateside this March 30.
