Song of the Day: Duck Off – La’ Britany

Actress and singer/songwriter LA’BRITANY’s single ‘Ducked Off’ is all about putting herself first in the face of unrequited love.

The single debuted on ALLBLK network’s The Notorious Queens series which features some of the most talked-about women from reality TV, where La’Britney stars in the show alongside Stormey Ramdhan, Tonesa “Toni” Welch, and Mehgan James.

The former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star found online fame from her popular “LaMix” song cover and choreography videos– many of which went viral and earned her global attention and nods from 50 Cent, among others. This fueled her to release a string of hits, ‘Booty Drop’, ‘Xxxtra’, and ‘Actin’ Funny’. The latter accumulated millions of streams and channeled La’Britney’s voice over mainstream radio stations.

Song of the Day: You Get Me – Vaness

The soaring guitar riffs and the powerful vocal performance sums of the message behind VANESS‘ single ‘You Get Me’ – to be being loud, larger than life and most importantly, to be truthful to oneself. The single also is a tip of the hat for those – whether it’s a close friend or the one – who embrace all that personality.

Typically I write from experience, but this song was conjured by my idea of the perfect partner,” says Vaness. “I haven’t met this person yet, but they can use ‘You Get Me’ as a blueprint.”

Song of the Day: That’s On You! – Rei Ami

Released on Visionary Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Alt-pop singer and songwriter, REI AMI‘s standout new track ‘THAT’S ON YOU!’ shows off her range and versatility, opening up with a fierce yet playful rap verse before seamlessly transitioning into a soft captivating pop earworm.

The accompanying music video, directed by Kristen Jan Wong (Charli XCX, Nasty Cherry, Grace McKagan), portrays the fast rising musician as part of a bounty hunting duo who eventually seeks revenge on her partner in crime.

On the inspiration behind her new single, REI AMI shares, “THAT’S ON YOU!” is about recognizing your power again. It’s about being yourself to the fullest extent and if others don’t like it, then that’s their problem. I exist for myself and myself only. I refuse to dull myself down to make others comfortable. So if you don’t like me, baby that’s on you.”

Born in South Korea and raised in Maryland, REI AMI commanded herself into the spotlight in 2019 with the release of her three multi-faceted debut singles ‘Make It Mine’, ‘Dictator’ and ‘Snowcone’ the latter of which has since amassed over 15 million cumulative streams. Backed by co-signs from Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, and Zane Lowe, REI AMI continued to make waves with the eye-popping 2020 rap single ‘Mac & Cheese’, released via her new label Visionary Records, which led to a highly coveted spot walking in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty runway show that same year.

Her name is a combination of two characters from the lauded anime series Sailor Moon; REI represents her softer, more delicate side and AMI showcases her braggadocious and aggressive “bad bitch” style. REI AMI best reflects the two polar sides of her personality, while also representing duality. For her, it’s not having to choose between this or that, but rather embracing both and then modeling that in her music.

“THAT’S ON YOU!” follows REI AMI’s first release of 2021, ‘Do It Right’ featuring rapper Aminé, and is the latest off her forthcoming mixtape due out this summer. Check out the official music video for the fierce single here…

Jessica Wilde Drops New Double A-side ‘Wasted’ / ‘F*ck U I’m Sober Now’

With it being a particularly wild 2020 in more ways than one, singer JESSICA WILDE slides into 2021 in spectacular fashion with Double A side ‘Wasted’ / ‘F*ck U I’m Sober Now’

Not only are the singles’ titles self-explanatory but Wilde has opened a gateway into her past by returning full circle to her South London roots, combining her sharp-witted lyricism through Spoken Word/Rap alongside her more familiar style husky soulful vocals.

For those acquainted with Wilde it will be a pleasant surprise to many that she is not just one helluva Soul/R’n’B singer, but she has MC skills which are on par with some of the UK’s heavyweights.

Wilde’s raw, brutally honest lyrics in ‘Wasted’ and ‘F*ck U I’m Sober Now’ take you on a ride through her personal journey of mad parties, hazy drunken nights, addiction, toxic relationships, self-loathing, self-love, self-empowerment and going sober.

2021 looks to be another year of uncertainty but warrior princesses like Jessica Wilde can’t ever stay down. Now established as a singer songwriter, signing her deal with major publisher SONY ATV, Wilde has worked with artists from Ghetts to Tough Love. Her self-penned track ‘Strangers Love’ was released on renowned Korean k-pop label SM Entertainment and her co-write with Rudimental, ‘More Than Anything’ featured vocals from Emeli Sande. Jessica’s last project saw her wind up in LA writing at Ne-Yo’s Hollywood studio, with producer Kizzo. She gained support from The Daily Star, Wonderland Mag, ‘Record of the week’ on BBC Radio 1xtra, did a mini tour with a sold-out headline show at POW Brixton, and a final performance at Bospop festival, opening for Nile Rodgers.

It will take more than a pandemic to stop Miss Wilde from finding an inevitably huge audience, furthermore adding ‘gifted rapper’ to her illustrious set of talents. The combo knockout visual trailer for ‘Wasted/F*ck U I’m Sober Now’ had to be made within the confines of London lockdown but Jessica and video director Dylan Hayes used the 2020/2021 restrictions to spark their collaborative creativity. The dark deserted South London streets kick off ‘Wasted’ and then bedroom isolation inspires the ‘F*ck U I’m sober now’ section.

‘Wasted’ / ‘F*ck U I’m Sober Now’ is released as a double A side single and is out now on all digital and streaming platforms. Check it the official video for the single below…
