Canadian R&B’s newest star Mighloe shines on ‘Cruel’, her latest single and the focus track from her unmissable Desperate Times EP, accompanied by a stunning and intimate live visual directed by Zach & Phil.
A seasoned singer-songwriter and a burgeoning international star in the making, Mighloe is no stranger to music performance and composition. A graduate of The Remix Project, and SOCAN incubator, Mighloe has been featured on multiple popular R&B platforms such as R&B Radar, and EscapeTracks. And by the strength of her past two releases alone, Mighloe has also managed to catch the eyes & ears of big-name tastemakers such as Earmilk, Wordplay Mag and When the Horn Blows, to name but a few.
Determined to maintain her streak of success, Mighloe unveils ‘Cruel’, a pared-back and intimate R&B offering inspired by the power of resilience and the abstract beauty that can be found in the cycle of decay and rebirth.
Introduced by a delicate, string-led melody, Mighloe’s gentle, soul filled vocals narrate the story of a time now passed, when she was weak from the trauma of a toxic love and the journey to retrieving her self-worth. Throughout this record, we are gifted with Mighloe’s unique ability to transport us inwards and paint vivid stories using powerful lyrics that double as brush strokes of emotion.
Mighloe – ‘Cruel’
“Cruel is my empowerment. It is a reminder of who I once was; Broken. And of the strength it took to put myself back together. The resilience. I am better now. I am free. I am powerful. Your cruelness will never again take a toll on me.” – Mighloe
