Song of the Day: The Way You Love – Rèe Cliene

South London born singer-songwriter RÉE CELINE graces the blog with her debut single, ‘The Way You Love’ (#TWYL)

‘The Way You Love’ may be her first offering as a solo artist, but Rée has been enchanting audiences with her silky, soprano vocals for years. Often compared to Ariana Grande, H.E.R, Jhené Aiko and Brandy, the young songstress has worked on the UK Music scene providing backing vocals for Buddy, Jermain Jackman, Yxng Bane and Charlotte.

Showing lyrical and vocal maturity at just 19 years old ‘The Way You Love’, (#TWYL) explores themes of her first love and the idea of being lost in love. Through this silky smooth joint, Rée was inspired by diverse influences such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Brandy.

Out now on all download and streaming sites, ‘The Way You Love’ is taken from her forthcoming  EP ‘Deserve’. Check it out below:

Song of the Day: Control Me – BRKE

Adding to her rising popularity with bloggers and tastemakers after the success of her last release, ‘Cupid’ – which clocked over a million views on YouTube, BRKE launched her single, ‘Control Me’.

The last few years have been a progressive journey for BRKE, (pronounced Brooke) as she’s curated her sound, an eclectic blend inspired by the London Hip-Hop, Afro-swing and Grime movements, seen and heard in ‘Control Me’. Also influenced by, and echoing late 90’s to early 00’s R&B from the likes of Destiny’s Child (‘Writing’s On The Wall’) and Brandy (‘Full Moon’), her music sits in a distinct pocket, capturing the intricacies of love, sprinkled unapologetically with youthful undertones, as she openly invites you in to her own experiences.

BRKE’s attitude and determination is to never back down from a challenge and has a desire to have her voice heard, or as she puts it, “I just want my story to be heard”. With close to 2 million views on her own YouTube channel coming from just 2 previous singles her stealthy and unwavering approach to her music is unquestionable and clearly having the right effect.

Emerging as an entity not to be overlooked, BRKE has an ability to paint a vivid picture via her lyrics and with her sassy, loveable persona she is relishing the prospect of engaging new audiences, as she aims to become the defining sound of the UK.
