With his brand single ‘Feeling You’, which was recently premiered on Complex UK and BBC 1Xtra, and is currently being supported by Kiss FM, Capital Xtra, Rinse FM, Hunger Magazine, GRM Daily, Link Up TV, and Earmilk, among others, doing nearly 300,000 plays on YouTube and Spotify in just a few weeks, UK Afrobeats star SONA has linked up with the VIVA Choir, for a beautiful acoustic rendition of the fast-rising single.
Originally produced by ATG Musick, who has worked with Abra Cadabra, Sneakbo and Blade Brown, among others, this acoustic version of ‘Feeling You’ sees SONA and the VIVA Choir coming together to deliver a stripped down and impassioned piano-driven version of the original track, driven by Sona’s lush vocals and effortless flow, the amazing choir’s lead vocals and backing harmonies, and the undeniable chemistry between SONA and the VIVA ladies.
Tipped for greatness as early as 2014 when he first landed on the scene, Sona has grown from strength to strength over the past 18 months, starting with his comeback single ‘Hurt Nobody’ with Sneakbo, which has, so far, clocked over 2 million plays. Sona followed this up with ‘Bamidele’ featuring Youngs Teflon, as well as his summer hit ‘Ginger’, which gave Sona his first solo single to surpass one million plays.
In that short space of time, the South London native has been championed by the likes of MTV Base, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, Rinse FM, The Beat London, Radar Radio, Reprezent Radio, KISS Fresh, The FADER, GRM Daily, Link Up TV, SBTV, Channel AKA, and the MOBO Awards, among others, and with over 5 million plays firmly under his belt, Sona is certainly one to watch within the UK music landscape in 2018.
