Vanessa Elisha ‘Latency’ Ft. CVIRO
VANESSA ELISHA is a name you had better get familiar with fast, because we are predicting her to be everywhere very, very soon. She’s previously teamed up with XXYYXX, Paces remix her track, tipped as an Artist to Watch for this year by yours truly, and now she’s busy working on her own solo material. This 21 year old R&B rising star is definitely one to watch and if you need further reason why, just listen to her new track ‘Latency’.
Teaming up with CVIRO for this smoky track, ‘Latency’ is a powerful duet that will have you moving but also have you feeling. Both artists have incredible sets of pipes, and they are shown off in all their glory in this track. The pair – who are actually brother and sister – also joined forces with producer GXNXVS, who laid down the tracks warbled, synth driven, soft trap style beats.
Drawing influence from the likes of Kelela and the future R&B movement, Vanessa Elisha is perfectly suited to the steady tinkering and careful drops in this track – her husky voice proving a sublime match for the forward thinking production of GXNXVS.
She’s already hit #2 on Billboard’s Emerging charts, and it looks like things are only going to get bigger and better from here. Vanessa Elisha is an artist is tipped to really take off, and with this track now under her belt as well ahead of her forthcoming EP, we can’t wait to see what happens next!
