TORONTO, ON., Sept. 25, 2020 — Rising Toronto-hailed artist Cmagic5, is back exploring musical landscapes and killing it softly with her new single “You don’t know.”
The emotive 18-year-old artist brings us fresh R&B vibes infusing jazzy, melodious chords and encapsulating vocals for a feel-good end of summer track.
Sensual and soul-stirring melodies sprinkled with high bells, followed by haunting backing vocals take classic R&B melodrama to the next level and make the new single, “You Don’t Know” ultimately therapeutic to listen to. This is further enhanced by her candid and conversational lyrics that speak directly to the heart.
To feel it, you should check out the music video below, which she says is filmed entirely with an iPhone. Pain and anger in the song are expressed through evocative lyrics and soulful vocals, yet the music gives off a very relaxing, laid back vibe.
“This song is inspired by events and conflicts that majority of people encounter with their love interest at some stage in life,” said Cmagic5. “Like all my music that I write, it’s expressive and lyrical. It’s interesting coz’ you are eager to unveil the end, curious for more. It is the calm before the perfect storm, a recognition of self-worth and self-respect”
Nominated for the 2020 Mississauga Music Award, Cmagic5 describes her music as contemporary pop fused with other music genres, creating a refreshing blend of conventional sounds and futuristic vibes. She cites Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, and Toni Braxton as some of her inspirations.
