Asheley Turner drops brand new track ‘Take Your Time’
The Toronto Based R&B singer Asheley Turner is no stranger to heartstruck ballads. Her glossy R&B production and warm vocal riffs are inspired by the musicians she grew up listening to Lauryn Hill, SWV, Brandy, Mariah Carey, Aaliyah and current influences Jhene Aiko, Kehlani, H.E.R, Jazmine Sulivan.
‘Take Your Time’ offers a reflective outlook on love; Asheley Turner is searching for answers from her lover. The lyrics document the pain and confusion smouldering Asheley Turner’s mind. “I can’t seem to tell if I’m talking to a stranger...You’ve been acting unusual”. The soulful singer exposes her vulnerable, self-reflective thoughts.
The dreamy experimental production by Yogi The Producer, Laguil & Matt Law, cruises on a striking drum, guitar-led beat coated with Asheley Turner’s warm echoed vocals. Listening to ‘Take your Take’ feels like a peaceful removal from society; the track traps you in a world of its own.
After being selected as one of the female collaborators on Drake’s Scorpion album, Asheley’s additional vocals are heard throughout the Boi-1da, and Allen Ritter produced “Mob Ties”. Be sure to listen to her PHASES EP.
