Meet Ella Rossi. You may recognize the 19-year-old singer/songwriter from her Frank Ocean cover of “Thinkin Bout You,” which amassed over 1.2 million views. Ella was able to turn heads with her delicate and soothing vocals, and will continue to turn heads with her debut single, “Fairytale.”
This track feels as though it was created on a cloud. The soft, echoing, slow tempo’d vocals make the listener feel like they’re in a dream state. Ella creates the perfect mood for a song about the delusions of falling in love, with a unique take on the classical R&B style. Her silvery vocals are equal parts eerie and flirtatious, and the airy beat puts listeners in a trance, losing track of space and time. Ella even goes as far as to allude to classical fairytales, flexing her lyrical prowess when she sings,
"Chasing after you is like a fairytale,
Waiting for the day that I let down my hair."
Get it? (Yes- Rapunzel). This is a promise: one listen to the California native’s voice, and you’ll be hooked. With vocals comparable to Ariana Grande, Ella isn’t just an up-and-coming artist, she’s arena-ready. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too long for more Ella Rossi content, as she’ll be releasing the official music video for “Fairytale” on 2/12. For now, be sure to stream Ella Rossi’s “Fairytale” on all platforms.
