British R&B newcomer Cartaé drops her debut single “All I Have,” a sparkling, yearning love song about romantic negotiations of the heart.
On the song, Cartaé sings about giving her heart away over gossamer synths and an 80s new wave 808 drum pattern: “Anybody wanna buy a heart / I don’t need it anymore …Maybe we can make a deal / There’s no guarantee that you’ll find someone to hold / It’s not worth very much, but it’s all I have to give.”
The track was produced by her friend Ragz Originale. Alongside Oscar#worldpeace, they form the affiliated crew/ label from North East London Mini Kingz.
Cartaé hails from Wembley in North West London. An early love of music saw her start as a rapper before she realized her talents lay in writing songs instead. Influenced by groups like Little Dragon and Blood Orange, she started writing top lines influenced by indie rock and pop.
