Viral artist, Aqyila’s highly anticipated single, ‘Bloom’ has officially hit platforms today 🎉 You might’ve first heard of her when the teaser for “Bloom” went viral on social media, accumulating over 325K likes and 18 million views on Aqyila’s own videos featuring the sound.
Getting a chance to hear this early was nothing short of a privilege.
What sets “Blossom” apart is its infusion of South African sounds into the pop and R&B mix. It’s a delightful surprise that adds an extra layer of richness to the already lush arrangement. Combined with her soft vocals and the hadmonies that follow, it’s like a sunny day wrapped in music, inviting listeners on a drive down a long, winding road of a healthy relationship.
But it’s not just about the sound; it’s about the feeling. With each beat of the drum, there’s an irresistible island vibe that seeps through, making it impossible to resist moving my head or hips to the rhythm.
Speaking on the song, she says, “It’s a love song that reminds you why you love the person that you’re with. Why they’re your safe space on your hardest days,” said Aqyila of the track. “Writing this song just gave me chills, it instantly felt special. I see it as a wedding song,” she continued
Aqyila’s talent in the R&B scene is undeniable, and her current achievements prove that even more. With over 51 million global streams and two nominations for the 2024 JUNO Awards in Canada for her EP “For the Better” and song “Hello”.
With so many accomplishments already under her belt and a single that just feels like a classic love song, Aqyila is getting exactly the recognition she deserves.
