Premiere: KoraTheArtist Shares New Single ‘Sail Away’

Rising singer-songwriter KoraTheArtist has released her new single “Sail Away” featuring Flex Kartel. The mid-tempo banger is lifted from the D.C. native’s forthcoming EP that is slated to release later this year.

“’Sail Away’ for me means to rise to the next dimension or to ‘surf’ over the craziness and hate we face. I wanted to dig deep into the message but still give off a vibe that will have you replaying the song over and over again,” KoraTheArtist tells Rated R&B. “With this record, I needed to break through stereotypes and social barriers and put together an inspirational set of melodies and soulful vocals. Accompanied by EBM artist Flex Kartel, he truly uplifted the message with supporting lyrics that added what I call that ‘sauce.'”

Kora has been putting her pen to good use. She collaborated with producer David Knocks (Future, Trey Songz) to co-write all of the music for BET’s Eclipsed, which stars Danai Gurira (Black Panther).

702’s Meelah Returns with New Song ‘Desert Love’

Meelah, of R&B group 702, took a short hiatus from her solo career but she’s back. The R&B vet returns with “Desert Love,” a smooth jam produced and co-written by J-Trx.

Backed by an enticing beat, Meelah finds herself all in her feelings thinking about the good times with an old lover. She wishes she could take him back but she can’t seem to get passed the errors of his ways.

Meelah was on the verge of releasing his debut album a few years ago but the stars were not aligned for her to successfully drop it. Now, with the support of her new label home, SoulStar Music Group, Meelah is ready to share her new music with the world.

“Timing is everything,” Meelah said in a statement. “Releasing a project has been a long awaited moment for me so when SoulStar Music Group approached me I was truly humbled and excited to record my debut solo album.”

“Desert Love” is just an appetizer before Meelah releases the official first single from her untitled debut album, which is set to be released on SoulStar Music Group / eOne Music later this year.
