Currently based in LA, Annalé was born in New York and raised in South Korea and New Jersey. Being exposed to many different cultures and experiences growing up reflects her integrated sound. “I love music that I can feel and am pretty eclectic when it comes to the types of music that I’m into”, shares the 23-year-old. “When I discovered artists like Lalah Hathaway, Erykah Badu, Floetry, India Arie,Norah Jones, Adele, Sadè, Jill Scott, Brian McKnight, Mint Condition, Musiq Soulchild and Lauryn Hill, I felt something almost visceral. Their music, melodies, move and inspire me.” […]
With her debut album coming soon and the single “Roses” rising on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary Charts, Annalé is positioning herself to musically and culturally reach a global audience. With its Neo-soul groove, funky bassline, and jazzy sensibilities, “Roses” is gaining notable buzz on Billboard’s R&B Airplay charts, currently standing at top 27 with a potential to rise even more. It is also being played in multiple radio stations and all the AMC theaters across the U.S., gaining lots of attraction and attention from the listeners. Numerous amount of music blogs, magazines and websites are writing and sharing about Annalé, praising about her soulful vocals and the impressive debut single.
I read about Annalé @ singersroom.com and have just been listening to this track on repeat for a while and when I checked out her bio on Billboard, the single actually has jumped up another spot to #26 on the Adult R&B Songs chart.
Nice work if you can get it.
