If you let one of the most evocatively hard-hitting hip hop songs that dropped in 2021 slip you by, we’re giving you a second chance to slip into the arrestingly raw single, More Life, by the Ohio-born, LA-based independent artist, Bryana Arlette.
Through her music, she shines a melodic light on the experiences that shaped her and sank her into a silent depression. Her vision as an artist is bed by the hope of connecting with fans that have lived through similar experiences or worse. As much as she deserves to be applauded based on her candid bravery, her sound is equally as breathtaking. Her composed and neo-classic spin on RnB-laced hip hop amplifies the emotion in the lyrics while simultaneously creating a cathartically intimate urban atmosphere. We can’t wait to hear what follows.
More Life is available to stream on YouTube.
