It was over a year ago that Vali introduced herself to Singersroom with the pop-dance single “Polaroid.” On her return to SR, Vali scooped up labelmate Wiz Khalifa for “Dimes.” The original track is a gritty-pop music offering, on par with the current trends, and a complement to Vali’s cheery voice. The self-proclaimed “Urban Hepburn” quickly made an impact this week by charting on the top of Indie Rotation.
Typically, actors transitioning to professional singers are not given a pass, but Mack Wilds a.k.a Tristan Wilds is being endorsed for his music talent. With his album, New York: A Love Story, dropping September 17, 2013, Mack is releasing songs. The fresh cut “Henny,” reforms Mobb Deep’s “Burn” from the violent head buster to a smooth dating profile for ladies interested in a man that balances hood and presidential characteristics.
Jade Novah popped onto the radar with “Show Out.” The title matches the unfolding melodramatic tale of ending your legacy before it is earned. “I wanted to create a song that could allow people to be proud of their “spotlight moments,” whatever they may be,” state Jade. The single is attached to ‘In Search of Me’, a project due out later this year.
Also falling into the top ten indie songs this week are Arima Ederra, D. Woods, Ro James, Novel, Lyrica Anderson, Tiffany Evans, and Ginette Claudette.
Singersroom’s “Indie Rotation” is a weekly evaluation of the latest singles, leaks, and releases from independent artists. Each Saturday we will deliver a list that showcases the week’s hottest records based on our editorial staff, listeners feedback and spins.
