South African Born Artist AdELA looks to shift the way we view ladies in the music game, by not only creating an original sound but by empowering the many young women who look up to her. Making it her mission to bring strength, confidence, and womanism back to the forefront. However, when it comes to her sound AdELA makes no mistakes combining some pretty gritty Hip Hop beats with soulful vocals and a witty lyrical flow, etching out a sound and style that is all her own.
In her latest project Dreamers & Thinkers, AdELA collaborates with longtime producer & Grammy Award-winner STREETRUNNER, as well as prominent hip-hop artists Fat Joe, Royce Da 5’9, Cormega, Torae and Jon Connor, to create a project that is sure to put her name on the charts.
While it is true that she is the only woman on a male-dominated project she makes sure to stay true to who she and remind listeners of her name!
Following the release her second single “Main Attraction” featuring Rap legend Kool G Rap, AdELA has decided to team up with heavyweight rappers Royce Da 5’9 and Jon Connor, for an inspirational soulful record entitled “Crown”
When asked AdELA mentions that her motivation behind the track was her love her dreaming and dream chasing, looking to send the message
“We all wear our own crown, and that we should never let anyone take it or our shine”
Though what’s really kicked the track up a notch was the gripping Comic strip visual which depicts AdELA in an almost wonder woman esk light, really taking the “crown” and strong woman imagery to the next level.
What’s next: I would like to drop one more video from “Dreamers & Thinkers” within the next few months. I have also teamed up with an entertainment company to put out a third project which is exciting. So I am in the beginning phases with that and just in the studio creating. I also had a few scripts come my way for TV and I am working on a tour back in Africa.
