We have a really fire new premiere for you on this fine Friday. This one comes from R&B singer/songwriter Vanessa Elisha who has worked with the likes of Ekali, Falcons and XXYYXX. Now we have the pleasure of featuring a solo release from the talented Australian singer-songwriter for the premiere of her must hear new song “Butter.”
"I wanted to make something a little less dark, a little more fun, a little more sexy. I was listening to artists on Soundcloud and came across this UK producer, LOXE and felt like he was the perfect blend of R&B and 80’s pop. I was listening to a lot of Janet Jackson for the first time as an adult. I never realised how provocative and dirty some of her songs were – in the best kind of way. That probably steered me into making 'Butter.'" - Vanessa Elisha
Elisha shines with both her incredible vocals and on-point songwriting showing she’s an artists you should definitely be keeping an eye on. UK produce LOXE provides the rumbling instrumental and proves to be a perfect match for Elisha's alluring vocals as he’s impressed us in the past on his work with NAO, who’s one of our favorites. The production pairs growling basstones, bright swirling synths and crisp, punching percussion laying the foundation for Elisha’s vocals to float buoyantly atop.
Vanessa Elisha’s brings a powerful, soulful tone throughout while she displays incredible songwriting flexing her unique voice, hitting some almost screeching falsetto that will give you chills. Good luck getting this one out of your head this weekend. Keep an eye on this talented artist and enjoy!
