Jillian Hervey, better known by her stage name Lion Babe, is a 23 year old singer-songwriter who is the daughter of singer-actress Vanessa Williams. Lion Babe released her first single “Treat Me Like Fire” in late 2012, and let me just say that I fell in love with this track within the first 20 seconds of my initial listen. When I first listened to the track, it’s very undeniable that Lion’s vocals are very reminiscent of the neo-soul legend Erykah Badu (whom she also covers) – something that I didn’t mind at all. The lyrics are sexy and sensual and her voice fits perfectly with the production of the song. Overall, I think the track is a complete hit and will take her far. As far as her career, the young singer definitely has what it takes to step out from under her mother’s name and make a name for herself. I can’t wait to hear more from Ms. Lion Babe!
