If you want to hear the epitome of empowering pop, take a hit on Janel’s latest single, The Signs. The Philadelphia-hailing independent 23-year-old singer-songwriter transfuses her love for 00s pop & RnB into her always soulful tracks. But her sonic signature falls to the wayside of her unique voice and motivation to build up her listeners by sharing her experiences with love and self-identity.
The snapping beats give the softly composed melodies plenty of body under her sonorous yet shimmering vocal timbre, which you can’t help getting emboldened by.
The Signs was officially released on July 26th; check it out for yourselves by heading to Spotify.
