After her success with the hit song “Bad” alongside Wale it was obvious that Tiara Thomas would snag a deal with someone. As a result she landed a deal with Rico Love and has spent the last year under artist development. This was once a process all artists were to adhere in preparation for public exposure. During her time under the radar Rico Love has molded the young talent with her writing, life experiences, confidence, and of course her musical direction.
In a time where music has been diluted to please to masses or influence sales Thomas aims to remain herself. With a musical comparison similar to Frank Ocean, but still authentically her it’s clear that she is aware of her goals. A sound that is infused with soul, pop, hip-hop, and folk Thomas has created a gumbo effect with her sound art that will present on her approaching EP Bad Influence. While taking a listen to her tracks the sound of assurance is present. Whether if the listener is already a fan or listening for the first time Thomas give a welcoming approach from the very beginning.
The first official single is “One Night” that will surely have heads bopping once played. Currently set for a late July/early August release the single is expected to run to the top. The track is laced with sassy lyrics and personality. She states, “Writing the album helped me figure out what I was doing. I did a lot of music at my crib in Miami. I had a studio set up in my house.” This showing her dedication to her craft only proves that great things are to come of this rising sensation.
