Fresh off the back of her show-stopping performance as feature artist for the incredible Taka Perry’s recent triple j Like A Version, Australian R&B gem Emalia has today released her latest single ‘Suga Rush’ via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Produced by ARIA award-winning One Above (Hilltop Hoods) and rising producer Thom Crawford, Emalia has never sounded more at home in this sweet, sugary track.
The R&B laced track is energetic yet seductive in all the right places, as Emalia’s compelling vocals and vivid lyrics explore the emotional journey she takes on her ‘Suga Rush’. Emalia, whoworked with Thom Crawford on the track explains “‘Suga Rush’ isabout a toxic love you just keep coming back to. It’s sexy, it’s addictive, it’s affecting you in all the wrong ways just as much as it is the right ways; it’s the epitome of dangerous temptation.”
‘Suga Rush’ is a bold statement from an artist clearly comfortable in her own skin and another powerful step forward following on from the release of her first ‘trilogy’ of singles – ‘Who?’ , ‘2am Habit’ and ‘Prima Donna’. In ‘Who?’ Emalia is seemingly trapped in an unfulfilling relationship, to which she makes the decision to prioritise herself and leave that life behind her. This change unknowingly leads her down a dark road which she passionately expresses in her track ‘2am Habit’. It is in Emalia’s empowering number ‘Prima Donna’ where we see her take control of her struggles and watch her come out as the fierce individual she always knew she was.
Excitingly, there is more music on the horizon for Emalia as she works towards the release of her debut EP, set for release later this year.
