Valntna Releases Powerful And Compelling Single, ‘Black Kingz’

Empowering, eloquent and unifying, VALNTNA conveys the world around her with considered hard-hitting lines and soulful softness in new single ‘Black Kingz’.

Premiered on BBC Radio 1Xtra with DJ Ace, the record made its poignant debut during Black History month ahead of the striking visuals, which are set to release in the last week of October. Lyrically dissecting the obstacles, the pain and suppression of black men, VALNTNA creates an uplifting message of unity, strength and power that can be accessed universally via her soulful and complex singing ability.

“I deliver a powerful message to shine a light on these issues, empowering all Black Kingz to come together, uplift themselves and each other & embrace the change that is distinctly upon us. Projecting Love, Healing & Unity” says the singer and songwriter from South London.

Produced by music duo, PINK87, who also helped curate VALNTNA’s previous single ‘CCW (Confidently Constantly Wrong)’, ’Black Kingz‘ flows with melodic variances guided by her R&B and soul influences, yet her customs and South London upbringing infiltrate her style making the product nostalgic but current.

Citing Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Lauryn Hill as some of her influences, VALNTNA is an artist of technique, growth, and emotion, and ‘Black Kingz‘ displays each quality exceptionally. Her ability to openly challenge important topics and call for unity within the black communities is bold, impactful and necessary. Check out this gem below…

Song of the Day: Antisocial Love Song – Alex Frew

When ALEX FREW first put pen to paper and notes to the melody for ‘Antisocial Love Song’, he couldn’t have expected the meaning that it would take on as the events of 2020 unfolded.

Pivoting between wanting to be alone yet wanting to be in love, ‘Antisocial Love Song’ depicts where Alex Frew is now and transparency with how he is feeling, partly inspired by the quarantine and the breakout of emotions after being cooped up for so long.

“This song is very important to me. It took on a new meaning after this global pandemic occurred. It wears its pop music qualities on its sleeve, but it touches on the difficulty of being alone and finding connections with others – a feeling which has only been amplified by the world’s current situation.” – Alex Frew

Alex Frew’s breakout release ‘Get Out Alive’ established his arrival, with pop influenced ballads fueled by honest emotions and teenage angst heard passionately on his debut track. His singer- songwriter abilities has steadily welcomed a host of new fans who can’t help but relate to his honest expression of feelings that are all too familiar.

Elthia Shares Brand New Single, ‘I Love You But You Make Me Cry’

Following the release of her debut EP, ‘Island of Mine’, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, ELTHIA shares her latest offering, ‘I Love You, But You Make Me Cry.’ The song is the beginning of her new venture towards indie-pop music with dance elements, showcasing delicate instrumentation coupled with soft, dreamy vocals and glittery guitar harmonics.

‘I Love You, But You Make Me Cry’ was inspired by the pieces of a broken relationship. It’s about trying to reach someone, but they keep putting up their walls, trying to protect themselves – and every time you try to dig a little deeper, it hurts a little more. Elthia explains, “The message of the song is to tell the story of what it’s like to love something that hurts you every time you try to understand it. I wanted to show the duality of the two ideas that are constantly at war while existing inside of you, and showcase what the breaking point would actually be, if there is one at all.”
