If you haven’t heard of the new pop queen in town, take a seat and let me educate you; Taija New is the name on everyone’s lips at the moment as she seems to infect her ever expanding global listeners with her irresistible charms. And don’t you think, even for a second, that everything that is happening for her is the result of a fluke; no, she deserves every bit of acclaim, attention, and adulation because she has been putting in the effort, working tremendously hard to be the best version of herself, and releasing timeless hit songs that not only highlight her innate gifts, but also her personality and versatility. Not one to be limited to just one sound, her style cuts across Pop, Hip hop and R&B, and she still has got that voice for days!
Taija is currently making headlines with her new single “So Long”—an authentically tapped banger and one of the best tracks you will listen to that blends pop and hip hop so faultlessly you just don’t want it to stop!
Right from the intro as she exercises unstained wide vocal range with her vocal harmonies that take a listener for a better 30 seconds of the intro, before the melodies engrossingly respond to her vocals in rhythm and feel is that inexpressibly beautiful intro in a nutshell!
The beats are heavy and bite with a modern pop and hip hop sting that just feels like Christmas! Taking center stage like the star she is, Taija drops her bars in quintessential hip-hop lyricism, showcasing herself as a wordsmith capable of doing the most over any type of beat. Confident and intense, this is a fierce personality on display here, and you just have to be here to experience it!
In between her hard-hitting flows, New delivers the memorable hooks, underscoring her competence as both a rhymester and singer. I don’t know about you, but everything about Taija is giving me Aaliyah vibes, and I’m head over heels for it!
“So Long” feels like a supporting single to something big because Taija New is actually preparing to drop her new album “Unsolicited Material” very soon!
