Song of the Day: Hunting You – Brianna Marie

Bursting with her empowered attitude and bold lyricism, New York-based singer-songwriter BRIANNA MARIE shares ‘Haunting You’.

Her striking voice blended with her captivating dark pop soundscape is put to full effect in the single. Speaking more on the track, Brianna Marie explained:

“‘Haunting You’ is a song I wrote about allowing past love to keep you hostage. Sometimes it is easier to hold on to a ghost than to allow yourself to be alone. It’s like the worst kind of self-sabotage to continue running back to someone who repeatedly hurts you, but we’ve all done it.”

A true force to be reckoned with and artistically at the top of her game, rising artist Brianna Marie creates powerful material that genuinely connects to listeners largely due to the passion, dedication, conviction and commitment that can be heard in every word she sings.

Chin Injeti Spreads Self-Love With Single, ‘For The Love Of Life’

Multi-Grammy and JUNO Award-winning artist CHIN INJETI‘s new single ‘For The Love Of Life,’ is a rallying cry of self-love and reliance. It wasn’t completed without some of Injeti’s tenured collaborative magic; he called upon fellow Vancouverite Teon Gibbs to feature on the track.

With a burgeoning catalog at 255,000+ streams across Spotify alone, ‘For The Love Of Life’ is Injeti’s first of the year, and follows 2020 offerings of ‘Let Go,’ ‘Serious,’ and ‘Falling’ — the latter of which featured Esthero on accompanying vox and Delhi 2 Dublin’s Tarun Nayer on tabla.

Born in Hyderabad, India and having to survive polio from birth, music therapy treatments helped facilitate his motor skills — ultimately changing his life. His path towards the craft became clearer when Injeti teamed up with then-partner DJ Khalil with whom he made multi-GRAMMY and JUNO Award-winning music with and for the likes of Dr Dre, Eminem, Drake, Pink, Aloe Blacc, The Clipse, Lecrae, K’Naan, and more.

Song of the Day: Make You Sad – Michaela Slinger

Co-written with JUNO award-winning Kevvy (Carly Rae Jepsen, Fake Shark) and two-time Polaris Prize listed Louise Burns (Haley Blais), MICHAELA SLINGER‘s single, ‘Make You Sad’, reflects on how we glorify relationships that appear easy or effortless, when—in reality—relationships with no attempt to try and really understand each other are destined to leave people feeling empty.

Through her honey glazed vocals, the Canadian singer/songwriter imagines the person inside of the song’s relationship dynamic is describing it as “effortless” to outsiders who interpret that as proof of a happy couple, while it’s actually tormenting the person inside.
