Ash Leone falls somewhere between girl-next-door and unattainable goddess status – she is relatable yet ethereal in her delivery, reaching new heights in her latest single “LA RAIN.” With a gorgeous voice that feels like a hybrid of Ariana Grande and Amy Winehouse, the Philly-native artist synthesizes R&B, pop, and subtle reggae influences to form her latest masterpiece.
The rhythmic single describes a toxic relationship, wherein the singer croons “You give me good days bout the same as it rains in LA, you know that that’s like never.” Although the lyrics are spiteful, Leone maintains an empowering air. The music video for the track solidifies this, depicting clips of Ash Leone shaving her head coupled with her freely dancing in the California desert. The hazy pastel shots transport one to a beautifully barren landscape all while Leone keeps you mesmerized with her movement and music.
Ash Leone is declaring her rightful place in the R&B/pop scene with a sound that’s unique and classic, yet contemporary. She’s already made waves in the music scene and is poised to make many more.
