Tonia Victoria Comes Through With New Single, ‘U Cute’ + Video

Featuring Yorkshire-based rapper KDZA, solo artist TONIA VICTORIA‘s brand new R&B gem, ‘U Cute’, could be described as a worthy anthem for female empowerment.

On the surface, the single boasts carefree and flirtatious tones along with Tonia first expressing her interest for her potential lover. Beyond the eye-catching exterior, the Huddersfield-born/South London-raised songstress then questions if her potential love interest has the integrity to be a life-long partner.

Out now on all download and streaming sites, ‘U Cute’ is Tonia’s first single in three years, after headlining in Sheffield’s Hallam Shower as well as performing at Tramlines and Soundwave festival in Croatia. During the three-year break, Tonia became a mum for the first time!

Song of the Day: Shell – Marie-Clo

Singer/songwriter MARIE-CLO wrote single ‘Shell’ when she was incredibly sick with polycystic ovary syndrome…and just as her music career was taken off, she found a lump in  breast. As you can imagine, she felt defeated as well as petrified.

Possessing a soothing alt-pop drive, ‘Shell’ chronicles Marie-Clo’s above journey and her fears of death. Despite the uncertainly for the future, she pushed through her anxiety and trauma – along with a cocktail of emotions she was experiencing – and continued with her first love – music.

Taken from her brand new EP, ‘Shell(e) Pt II’, out now on all various download/streaming platforms, ‘Shell’ is a message for anyone – especially women – to keep on shining, no matter how great the battle appears to be.

Louise Golbey Shares Sassy Single, ‘Scarlet Woman’

LOUISE GOLBEY does not do things by halves. Her first single from her forthcoming sophomore album ‘Renaissance’ comes straight out of the dirtiest funk and soul school around. Think Prince and D’Angelo on a hot summer’s night and you will begin to get the picture.

This London based artist might not look like she can tear the roof off a sweaty dancehall or jazz club but after touring and collaborating with countless superstars from London and across the Ocean; from Omar and Ed Sheeran to Roy Ayers, Roberta Flack, Eric Benet and En Vogue, Louise has kept them all enamoured, as she does her adoring fans and continues to establish herself as a respected ambassador of the UK’s soul scene. Just before 2020’s lockdown Louise reached one of her live ambitions with her own name on the line up at London’s 02 Arena alongside Level 42, Kool & The Gang and Brand New Heavies and now after some time on her hands to record for the new album she takes things up to another level.

Her brand new single, ‘Scarlet Woman’ harks back to a sassy TLC belter fused with a neo-soul style groove. It packs a sexy punch, but feels incredibly on point, as we strive further forward away from the old macho stereotypes and nearer a destination of R.E.S.P.E.C.T which is still an ongoing quest for all.

Song of the Day: Third Degree Love Crimes – Lili Kendall

Australian singer/songwriter LILI KENDALL‘s single, ‘Third Degree Love Crimes’ chronicles the crazy things we do for love…we’ve all been there at some point in our lives – and if you pretend you haven’t experienced those feelings, then you’re in serious denial!

Produced by her good friend SLMN, the emotionally-charged soulful ballad is taken from her full-length debut album ‘Love, Herself’, released late last month. The project displays a transformative and healing body of work that chronicles womanhood, self-empowerment, love and life.
