Dakari Eli – “Why Him? (All I Want Is You)” | @dakarieli

Dakari Eli, Urban Magazine’s editor-in-chief, returns to her musical roots with her soulful new single, “Why Him?”

“Why Him?” was created not out of sadness per se, but out of utter disappointment. How can two people make love to the point of spiritual elation only to have one of them sabotage it out of fear,” Dakari explains. “It’s knowing the depth of the connection that was felt so profound by one person was ruined by the lack of emotional maturity of the other.”

The first song from a currently untitled project premiered Tuesday night on VPR Radio and is available exclusively on SoundCloud.
