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: Right Way – Fortuno

Acting as a reinforcement of a much-needed mantra, LA based trio, FORTUNO, explores the unequal yet undeniably beautiful path toward success and self-exploration in their single, ‘Right Way.’

Eli, Ellis, and Tobi share a lot. Beyond being bandmates, the trio shares a taste for nostalgic tunes and ambient sounds as well as a passionate and genuine connection to their craft. That said, each of them has their own specific paths both as artists and as humans. That’s where ‘Right Way’ comes in. Simultaneously chilling yet warm, the final single off their EP speaks to the unique path each person must go down for their personal development. Echoing a sentiment that the guys’ hold onto themselves, the single shows that once you figure out that there is no ‘Right Way,’ you end up finding yourself exactly where you’re meant to be.

For Fortuno, the right place is LA. In 2018 on the shoreline of southern Maine, music majors and local cover-band mates Tobi and Ellis joined forces with their former high school classmate and current USC jazz guitar star, Eli. Together they celebrated and struggled, as young adults do, and eventually made their way to Southern California to dive headfirst into a full-blown music career. Not only was this the best decision they collectively made, but it also clearly created inspiration for their music. Their EP is a mosaic of their years of moving and committing to a “make-it-work” mentality, and ‘Right Way’ is both a gift to listeners as well as a gift to themselves. Like a mantra, the lyrics remind Fortuno of the good, the bad, and the ugly, yet the result is a harmoniously haunting hymn fashioned with modern trap elements and a soundscape of comfort.

With Eli and Ellis on production and Tobi on the mic ,the trio has danced throughout the Los Angeles music milieu since their debut and through the speakers of the millions who stream their songs. Playing at The Roxy, The Peppermint Club, and shows with Sofar Sounds, Fortuno cemented their unique sound as one that is here to stay in the So-Cal scene. Their single, ‘Home’ has amassed nearly 1.5 million streams while their previous songs have garnered applause from music industry legends and local fans alike.

This one’s a must listen…check out ‘Right Way’ below…
