BROOKLYN // CUPID // VIDEO OUT NOW
LABEL: ACTUALLY MUSIC
The much anticipated visuals to Brooklyn’s debut single ‘Cupid’, have just dropped via her YouTube channel. The video set in London town, shows the stunning Brooklyn reflect on a past relationship.
Brooklyn, recently released 3 HUGE remixes of ‘Cupid’. Both the Grime and UKG mixes, take the track to all new levels of sickness and will have you bubbling and shuffling along, to Brooklyn’s fierce vocal.
Wonderland Magazine grabbed the premiere online: http://www.wonderlandmagazine.com/2016/11/audio-premiere-brooklyn-cupid/
“The song is made up of hypnotic trap high-hats and a revolving beat, coupled with Brookyln’s rich, mesmerizing vocals. The sprinklings of light, high octave piano notes give ‘Cupid’ a haunting, music box quality, pretty ideal for a song about the sting of betrayal. We can’t wait to see what Brooklyn has in store for us.”
Echoing a solid influence of R’n’B, Grime and Hip-Hop, the 21-year-old has relied on personal emotions and experiences whilst creating her debut project. A self- proclaimed walking contradiction, her ability to paint the darkest realms of a relationship on a song then in the same breath detail the beauty of discovering love, has her constantly converting voice notes to songs.
Following the online release of her single, ‘Hold Up’ – a remake of Neneh Cherry’s classic ‘Buffalo Stance’ – with the music video achieving viral status of over half a million views in a short period of time, Brooklyn embarked on a summer of live performances including a Summer Tour followed by a number of festival dates.
Blessed with strong soulful vocals in her petite frame and size 4 Jordan’s, Brooklyn is quickly emerging as a voice not to be overlooked.
