In The Spotlight

VIAA – “Animal Style”

Hailing from Dayton, Ohio, this multi-faceted vocalist and songwriter has been singing since she was little. Now based in Los Angeles she got to be a backup singer for artists like Anderson .Paak, Willow Smith and Doja Cat. Since releasing her 2018 self-titled debut EP, her solo career has truly soared. She opened for T-Pain and Marc E. Bassy and has been featured in Toyota and Footlocker ads.

Filled with genuine honesty and emotional sensitivity, her new single is a delicious sonic morsel. Written as a tribute to a close friend who took his own life, she blends a sunlit, shimmering soundscape of smooth synths and a sweltry rhythm with sultry vocals, ear-stroking harmonies and poignant lyricism. A stunningly beautiful melody with heart-felt sincerity, this R&B gem is charming and stylish.
