Following her previous releases “Joyride” and “You & I,” classically trained, Bronx-born and bred singer/songwriter Isa takes a page from two of her biggest musical inspirations Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston in her brand new, beautifully heartfelt ballad “Take It Slow.”
The piano ballad shows off her impressive range and penchant for singing about themes of the heart, in this case, being hurt after being left for another.
“‘Take it Slow’ was a song that I literally wrote and arranged within the matter of an hour,” she explains. “I was going through a separation from someone I was truly in love with, and the day I wrote ‘Take it Slow’ was the first day I had some time off to be home with myself to digest the situation and being left for someone else. There is no resolution by the end of [the song]. It’s literally a song about being still. There is no right or wrong move, there’s nothing really to do but let life flow naturally no matter how painful it may feel to not have a solid ‘yes’ or ‘no’ at the time.”
“Take It Slow” is the lead single for her forthcoming sophomore EP, Mirrors Volume 1.
