Hot on the heels of her 2020 emergence into the Neo-Soul genre, South African-born singer and dancer Mikhalè Jones is straight back onto the airwaves, dropping her new single, CASIO.
A sultry mix of sexy, crazy, and cool, the track has an invitational narrative that invites her lover over for the night. True to Mikhalè Jones’ style, the seductive track is a sonic throwback to the R&B that molded her, but with a modern twist that invites genres such as Rap, Trap, and old-school Soul to come out and play.
Free, whimsical, full of emotion, and goosebump-moments is what listeners have come to expect from this young Jozi talent in recent years. Young SA rap star Lucasraps steps up to collab with Mikhalè on the track, spitting an extra dose of spice for the fans. To add to this extraordinary single, Select Play added their magic on production making this single one of the best from her upcoming body of work.
Since her signing to Afroforce1 Records in 2020, Mikhalè has been dedicating her time to tweaking her April-scheduled full-length album, It Is What It Is. Her deal will see her album marketed in territories beyond South Africa such as selected parts of Europe, Nigeria, and Kenya as a priority artist for the label.
Since her signing, she has worked alongside producers such as The Cousins and Select Play on the album. She released her first single, ‘My Soul’, with a jaw-dropping music video that saw her social media numbers rocket. Her second single was the summer anthem, ‘Rock It’, elevating her further in her genre. All three singles are available in choice digital service providers.
A born performer, Mikhalè is a qualified singer, songwriter, and dancer, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts. As an experienced backing vocalist and dancer, she has been working relentlessly on producing a full-length album that stays true to her core values as a performer.
Molded from influences such as Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, and newer artists such as Snoh Aalegra, Mikhalè has ensured her goals and visions remain in sight, despite lockdown restrictions inhibiting her progress. The result has perfected studio work with two successful singles under her belt.
CASIO aims to take the Mikhalè Jones brand even further into the commercial public eye. Relatable and sexy, catchy with a hot rap verse, the track is ripe for 2021.
