Swedish-born R&B singer, LUCIIA, is no stranger to music. Her family in Malmö possesses generations of musical influence - something which largely derives from their Cuban heritage. Though she was raised, and is still based out of, Sweden, her talents have taken her beyond the country's borders to London and even Los Angeles. Today, her voice stretches its way across the Atlantic Ocean, all the way to our radio stream in Massachusetts, as her single "BRB" alongside Shawn Butler and Joel Malka is an exemplary addition to her young discography.
Embarking on her journey in music approximately a year ago, it's safe to say that 2020 didn't go exactly as planned. The combination of social distancing and travel restrictions really limited LUCIIA to writing music at home, however now that things are opening back up, so is her catalog of music.
Resting as her first release of the year, "BRB" puts her vocal capabilities on full-display. Both Shawn Butler and Joel Malka make excellent contributions on this track, truly helping to amplify the lasting effect that comes paired with LUCIIA's presence over the instrumental. Though I mentioned how her discography is still in its infancy, I don't want this to overshadow the fact that it is full of depth. Centered around the empowerment of women and challenging the traditional responsibilities of women in relationships, this offering does much more than simply sound good. It speaks on issues of true relevancy when we need it the most, which is something that puts a phenomenal emphasis on this track's release. Be on the lookout for her upcoming EP, as I expect the sentiment I just shared about "BRB" to be increased by tenfold.
LUCIIA isn't an artist that you come across frequently, and it's for this reason that the team here at Mass Music Radio is highly suggesting that you get out there and give her music a spin!
