Check out “Soul” from Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart: A song with a soulful grove and lyrics centered around her feelings about the split between she and former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius. Let us know what you think.

From the Press Release: While Marsha has tended to be vocal about their departure, The Floacist has chosen to focus on her art and not until now has she commented publicly on the events that led to their separation. Doing what she does best, The Floacist answers these much asked questions in the provocative self-penned “Soul.” “This is the first Floetry album, after a six year split, and Marsha has been doing a lot of excessive talking during that time, all of which has gone unanswered by myself. My silence could have been confusing to the fans, so I wanted to address the split, at the right time, in the correct medium,” she explains. “It was important for me to comment truthfully on the main issue…Marsha left Floetry, after so much joint success and foundation building, to join Aftermath Records, with no assurance of an album release. Ultimately, holding Floetry to ransom, to pursue a possibility of ‘mainstream’ success and all that was gained, was whatever they would’ve put into her pocket, and a mixtape release entitled ‘Neo Soul is Dead’. This to me is the perfect example of someone selling out, or selling their soul.”
