Adria Kain Celebrates Strength, Perseverance & Diversity On New Single 'Classic Feat. Leila Dey'
Updated: Aug 20
R&B artist Adria Kain is a soul-filled and honest performer and songwriter, drawing from her reality and connecting her listeners by delving into stories of both her own and those of the world around her. The empowering new single ‘Classic’ is a prime example of her unquestionable ability to create connections throughout her music.
Opening with a relaxed, swaying beat setting the tone for the vibey track to come, 'Classic' soon brings in delicate bass and piano under Adria's stylistic, effortless vocal delivery. Layering harmonies, chopping vocal cuts and drifting atmospheric delay in and out on the lead vocal, the track floats effortlessly towards Leila's lifting featuring vocal that breezes in giving another dimension to an already beautiful single.
Speaking about Classic, Adria said:
“I’ve recently entered the stage in my life where I finally feel like I can be completely free and whole within myself, especially as a queer, masculine presenting black woman. I’ve also grown an even higher level of respect and appreciation for black women as a whole due to the simple fact that many of us hold a huge level of strength and perseverance that is unmatched and often unspoken. I wanted to create something not only for myself, but to help uplift and remind all black women that we are loved unconditionally regardless of experience and societal views, and to encourage the idea of continuing forward in all that we aim to do no matter what tries to interfere because we are classic examples of royalty and anything is a possibility. This video represents just that, two classic black women sharing special time together and uplifting one another in as many ways possible during a day in the city.”
Having already been touted by a number of tastemaker sites and opened for the likes of Questlove, BJ The Chicago Kid, Miguel and Ari Lennox, Adria is surely set to become a big name in her own right in the coming months. Watch the video for 'Class Feat. Leila Dey' below:
