Song of the Day: Cruel – Jessica Wilde

The third single taken from Wilde’s debut album, out later this year, ‘Cruel’ signals her delving back into her first love, a toxic relationship that inspired a harnessing of her bisexual identity but also led her to addiction – a subject she’s tackling on her debut album.

Co-produced with producer Jay Nebular and Grammy award winning producer Kiris Houston who have worked heavily with the likes of The Disciples and Little Mix, ‘Cruel’ has a nice lazy summer haze 90’s classic hip-hop and R&B vibe where Jessica is at her most cutesy, sultry but equally dangerous as her lyrics offer a little sting in the tail. The official visual tracks Jess wandering South London, paying homage to a nostalgic look & flava, shot on disposable cameras and VHS, it gives an authentic feel, themed throughout the album.

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.
