An inspiring young Liberian and international artist, Skylett White, has dropped a hit single for her upcoming project. This single, called ‘Balance’, is a laid back, very chill song, with a little bit of funk to it. 'Balance' is an Afro Hip pop/Reggae Type and it has attracted more than 1600 viewers on YouTube.
This young female artist was born in Liberia, grew up in Ghana and currently lives in the United States of America, Providence Rhode Island. According to Skylett White’s biography on Facebook, her style of flow is rap/hip-pop and Afro beats.
Skylett began singing at age seven in her church choir. Going solo years later, She started off with American Rap/Hip hop and dropped her first mixtape, titled “Crown Me Queen”, in 2009. Her previous stage name was “La Reality (Queen of LIB)” but she later changed it to Skylett White.
“My song is about the everyday life, not only based on my life, but something that others can relate to as well,” says Skylett. “When I write my songs I like to think beyond; I'm not only writing it for myself.
“I listen to different genres of music: from African to Reggae, from Hip-hop to pop, and so on. Like how all my other songs come about, I was in the studio listening to some instrumentals and the lyrics just came to my head.”
Told dem dey go, Balance Balance
Me making noise leh say I, Siren Siren
We are not equal my Pekin, Balance Balance,
We are not equal my Pekin Balance.
“I'm giving my fans and supporters what they want to hear,” she says. “Think of it as a job if the customer is happy they'll come back and buy. Liberian music needed a push to let others know that there are really great Liberian Artists abroad who are doing it not for the fame, but because music is their life. The only way for folks to start taking us seriously is [for us] to first set the bar high and I feel that's exactly what I did.”
According to her, the Balance video “may be released around the middle of February, perhaps. My Team and I have yet to decide but the video is looking amazing. I can't wait for the world to see it, as well as all my fans and supporters out here in America and back home.
“I pray that one day I can come out there and give you all a concert In Liberia. That would be the greatest moment of my life. I love you all and appreciate the love shown me. Special thanks goes to my producer, Abdul, (aka Soupman). Like they say, ‘Behind every Great Artist there's a Great Producer.’ He cooked the beat and I ate!”
