Harlem-based songstress Polly A debuts her new single “Brooklyn Sun” today via iTunes.
Growing up to the sounds of Bob Marley and Yellowman on her mom’s stereo, Polly A-aka Meleni Smith-moved to New York City, and immediately immersed herself in music. She began to craft a hybridization of her inspirations over the course of penning countless songs and has collaborated with some of music’s biggest names including J. Cole, who she co-wrote the gold-certified “Crooked Smile” with, as well as Alicia Keys and more who would go on to record her music.
Now, Polly A has emerged with an unpredictable and undeniable style of her own, reflecting everything from punchy lyrical poetry to an island swagger. Fierce, fiery, and fearless, this musical voodoo caught the attention of Interscope Records with whom she signed in 2015.
On her single “Brooklyn Sun” the songstress zig-zags between R&B, reggae, alternative, and hip-hop with equal parts grace and gusto. Her debut EP, Ghetto Gold Dream [Interscope] will be out this spring.
