LÉON is a queen. I almost skipped out on the chance to uncover her amazing artistry. I first came across LÉON on Soundcloud, because of a remix that had been done to her song "Tired of Talking" with Skizzy Mars.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jLOOCADTGs I've never been one to love animals. I know, it sounds brutal. I like dogs, but I wouldn't say I'm one with dogs.
