While Atlanta’s been pegged as the hotspot for a great deal of Hip-Hop’s rising artists, you’ll quickly find that some members of the newest frontier of R&B torchbearers call the Southern capital home as well.
One of the names to emerge from the scene in recent times is 19-year old Jayla Darden. Credited with producing, composing, and performing all her tracks, the young singer has garnered a reputation for clean production and poignant lyricism—a formula that she’s used to craft her Ideas Vol. 1 EP.
Packing six tracks total, this new project is the perfect introduction for anyone looking to lend their ear to some solid talent outside of rap’s sometimes imposing shadow. Once you’re done with the EP, be sure to browse the loosies that all led up to this effort. You won’t regret it.
