As much as we’re a destination for dance and pop music lovers, we’re also open to plenty of other genres and one of them that we have a real soft spot for is R&B. It’s a mega diverse sound that can be a hype track, a break-up song, an empowering anthem or something that’s a little more personal. Adria Kain and her new single ‘Classic’ falls into this last category.
Adria explains in the quote below that ‘Classic’ and the music that she’s been working on lately is the production of being completely free and whole – embracing her identity as a queer, masc-presenting black woman. This beautiful coming-of-age (which can happen at any age!) story is reflected in the easy-going flow of this new track. The R&B melodies run fluidly along with backbeats and the feminine touch of guest vocalist Leila Day.
If you need some inspiration today to be yourself, then look no further than ‘Classic’.
“I’ve recently entered the stage in my life where I finally feel like I can be completely free and whole within myself, especially as a queer, masculine presenting black woman. I’ve also grown an even higher level of respect and appreciation for black women as a whole due to the simple fact that many of us hold a huge level of strength and perseverance that is unmatched and often unspoken. I wanted to create something not only for myself, but to help uplift and remind all black women that we are loved unconditionally regardless of experience and societal views, and to encourage the idea of continuing forward in all that we aim to do no matter what tries to interfere because we are classic examples of royalty and anything is a possibility. This video represents just that, two classic black women sharing special time together and uplifting one another in as many ways possible during a day in the city.”
