Breana Marin Drops Infectious Track, ‘Work’

Pop/R&B artist BREANA MARIN‘s new single ‘Work,’ tells a moving story of the hardships that relationships go through while deciding if it’s a journey they want to continue.

“It’s about being in a relationship long past the honeymoon stage,” says Marin. “The point we reach where each person’s true colors are revealed, and deciding if you’re going to put the effort in to make it work.”

While the song’s context deals with a weighty emotional subject, it’s juxtaposed with R&B and pop influences mixed with a hint of island vibes to keep the tone light-hearted and fun. The lively melodies and beats paired with her lustrous vocals create a compelling dynamic that ties each element of the song together.

Breana Marin is a connoisseur when it comes to making hooks. Raised on Sade, Michael Jackson, and Prince, she honed her skills as a teen in the backseat of her parent’s car, singing lyrics to songs on the radio – and standing in front of the TV taking note of Michael Jackson videos. At 13, she began writing her own music, but it wasn’t until college where she began to find her stride. She’s taken the internet by storm from licensing hip-hop hooks to indie artists and is one of the top-performing vocalists and songwriters on the Beatstars platform, where her hooks have brought in incredible sales and racked up millions of views on YouTube. Marin is most known for her velvety smooth vocals influenced heavily by Sade and Imogen Heap. The songwriter’s impressive resume includes Fifth Harmony, Keyshia Cole, Phora, Brandy, and Letoya Luckett. Marin’s also had music featured in television shows on various networks like Starz, OWN, and Showtime.

Song of the Day: Fade Away – Zoe Zobrist

ZOE ZOBRIST‘s single, ‘Fade Away’ is both an exercise in self-forgiveness and an acceptance of unresolved trauma.

“It’s about what it feels like to wade through childhood traumas and the emotional turmoil they cause,” LA-based singer/songwriter further explains of her latest. “But it’s also about finding your light again.”

Zobrist’s dusty vocals and stripped-back acoustic guitar guide the track with a raw intimacy that immediately envelops the listener into her thoughts in a way that feels like a peek inside her diary. In keeping with her 2020 singles, ‘Fire,’ ‘Who You Gonna Be,’ and ‘All My Friends Are Dead,’ “Fade Away” is another defiant, deliberate, and deeply personal addition to her fast-growing repertoire.

Sinead Harnett Shares Single, ‘Last Love’, A Celebration Of Moving On From Heartbreak

Lifted from her sophomore album, ‘Ready Is Always Too Late’ – slated for release 21st May via Sony Music –   SINÉAD HARNETT dishes up her brand new track, ‘Last Love’ alongside a music video.

Speaking of her newest effort, the London-born/Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter says: There’s such a thin line between the liberation of having no one to answer to when you’re single, and the memory of the last person you loved,” says Sinéad. “When I’m single I fill my days up as much as possible, but those little moments where you remember being held by someone you loved can creep up. ‘Last Love’ is a celebration of moving on.”

Featuring previously released collaborations with EARTHGANG and Masego and VanJess, Harnett’s highly anticipated second studio album, ‘Ready Is Always Too Late’, celebrates her journey to embodying the best version of herself. Empowering songs with messages around individualism and unity exist alongside vulnerable snapshots of Harnett’s less confident past self, painting a picture of evolving self-worth that requires time and care to cultivate, all the highs and lows included. While her work isn’t over, Harnett’s hope is that her listeners will accompany her on this journey so they can begin to figure out where they are on their own.

Harnett’s 2019 debut album ‘Lessons in Love,’ found the rising R&B star in a deeply introspective place, learning to acknowledge and accept patterns in her romantic relationships to grow from them. Lessons in Love yielded break out single ‘If You Let Me,’ which has surpassed 70 million streams on Spotify alone.
