In June, SPIN premiered Tiana’s track “Lucky”, written with Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (J. Cole, H.E.R., Anderson .Paak), who also produced, and PRGRSHN (WSTRN, Stormzy, Wizkid). “Lucky” followed the breakout artist’s Motown solo debut, “Think About You” (Notion Mix) – a song that reveals her classic reggae influences yet feels very “right now.” View the lyric video, which premiered on Teen Vogue, HERE. Tiana, who has been named a Vevo DSCVR artist, roots her bold blend of future-facing R&B, enduring soul, and hip-hop attitude in boundless jazz eloquence twisted up with saucy East London inflection and a touch of Jamaican spirit.
“Collide,” her collaboration with EARTHGANG, has surpassed 30 Million combined global steams to date. It was the lead single from the acclaimed Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack. Naming it as one of the Best R&B Songs of 2019, VIBE, said, “‘Collide’ is an intoxicating duet that delicately intertwines neo-soul tranquility with harrowing emotion…pure gold.” Tianaand EARTHGANG performed the track on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” at the Soul Train Awards ’19 and at Billboard “Women In Music 2019.”
