Asiahn Delivers Sultry Track, ‘Fall Back’

ASIAHN turns up the heat on her sultry new single, ‘Fall Back,’ , an age-old tale of falling too hard and too fast.

Remarkably, the R&B singer/songwriter wrote ‘Fall Back’ in about 15 minutes alongside producer Dreek Beatz. “The story behind the song is, well, true,” she laughs. “I know we’ve all been in a situation where we’re trying to get to know someone casually. Then, of course, she falls in love anyways. It’s a song telling that person to ‘fall back, you doing too much.’ Let’s just get to know each other and see if getting serious is even something we want to do.”

‘Fall Back’ continues the Los Angeles-based artist’s transition from lovesick songstress to empowered star, as showcased on her Motown debut, ‘The Interlude EP’, released earlier this year. The EP debuted on multiple Billboard charts and earned Asiahn Billboard’s Emerging Artist Spotlight, started at #33 on Apple Music Charts, and received support from fans and critics like Halle Berry, Lena Waithe, and Keke Palmer, to American Songwriter, Essence, Nylon, Refinery29 and MarieClaire.

Asiahn will also be playing the title character in the upcoming Netflix animated series, Karma’s World, created by Ludacris. The show tells “the story of a girl finding her voice and using it to change the world.” Sounds like the ideal role for this 3x-Grammy-nominated talent who continues her steady rise, which includes being named Pandora’s Artist to Watch 2021, participating in Live Nation’s Black History Month, and Tidal Sessions performances.

‘Fall Back’ was released yesterday (24th September) via Since the 80s / Motown Records… Why not check it out below…

Song of the Day: Ziamonds – ATO

ATO claims the song of the day spot for the second time with single ‘ziamonds !!’, which touches heavily on mental health and healing to move forward.

Speaking on the track, ‘ziamonds!!’, ATO says, “I have found the power of the imagination to be vital to rediscovering myself. You can learn a lot from things that are not real. When I wrote “ziamonds !!”, I was in a dark and confused state. The song blurs the line between reality and fantasy. It makes light of living with mental health issues and finds a silver lining to begin painting something brighter and forward-facing.”

A follow up to the experimental, genre-flipped offering, ‘no caroline’, ‘ziamonds!!’ is taken from his new EP, ‘Side A’. Check out the official video below…
