Andy Allo Tops Amazon Charts With “Superconductor”

Check out what our friends from Noise11.com had to say about "Superconductor" by Andy Allo.

With Prince as executive producer, Andy Allo finally unleashed her second album, Superconductor, on Tuesday, with the album going straight to #1 on Amazon’s Soul and R&B charts in the US, UK and France within hours of its release.

The album features members of Prince’s band, the NPG, as well as Maceo Parker, Trombone Shorty, Michael B (who plays drums on the title track) and the Hornheadz, who haven’t appeared on a Prince album since 2001′s The Rainbow Children. Prince co-wrote three tracks on the album, namely Superconductor, The Calm and Long Gone.

After several delays in the album’s release, the announcement went out via social media as promised on 20th November and, within hours, Andy was posting screenshots from Amazon sites in France, then UK and finally in the US of Superconductor in #1 position for MP3 sales.

Andy performed the lead single from the album, ‘People Pleaser’, on American talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, complete with Trombone Shorty and Maceo Parker – who was looking as cool as ever in suit and shades – but no sign of Prince himself.

  1. Feel Me!!??

  2. My favorite is “The Calm”. I like the wood flute, yeah I do. But why did Prince have Andy sound just like Bria? It’s like it was written for Bria’s next release.

  3. I like “Long Gone” ….. it really doesn’t sound like a Prince song at all. The production is clearly Prince though which so much more emphasizes that Andy did good on this. Did that make sense? I think it did.

    “People Pleaser” sounds like a recent Prince outtake (now that’s not bad in itself). Just plain funk and not really anything else. That’s cool but not moving me. I want more from Prince …. even when it’s a protege doing the song.

    “The Calm” is beautiful and soothing. Still I agree with the chorus: “How long? How long?” can you make it go on?

    “Yellow Gold” has Prince written all over it. From the arrangement to the bass (which I do think Ida did though) to the lyrics. Prince on background vocals too I think. Clearly my favorite on the album.

    “If I Was a King” with the Hornheadz all over it it is funky like it’s supposed to be.

    I didn’t comment on some tracks because … well I didn’t feel them.

    I like the Prince touch on most of the tracks, I like Ida’s bass – that is one funky bass! – I’m getting annoyed with Andy’s voice when she does the raspy one. But when she thinks for real she’s good.

    Best Prince protege for years.

  4. I got the mp3 download off Amazon and quite like the songs. My absolute favorites are the beautiful ballads co-written with Prince: “Long Gone” and “The Calm” – that’s when Andy’s voice moves me, while in songs like “People Pleaser” she just does not reach me.

    What bothers me about not having a physical CD is that there are no indications as to who played what in the songs, and so I am wondering whether Prince played guitar with her in those ballads? Doc, can you shed light on this, please?

  5. Andy Allo is a SUPERSTAR!!!

  6. So happy for Andy Allo! Superconductor is a really good album! People Pleaser is my fave off this record it’s so funky!
