Bella Blair just shocked the internet and her fans by releasing her well anticipated EP Aura at midnight on Wednesday (August 22, 2018). The “turkle gang”, a name Bella calls her fans, went wild when they found out that Aura was released and then showed their love by tagging Bella in their screenshots of the purchased album. Many thought the transition from vlogger to artist/musician would prove futile for recording artiste Bella. Well, they were wrong, she’s just getting started.
Aura has six tracks inclusive of one collaboration ‘Changed Up’, with Boston artiste Alexander Padei. ‘Survive’ track number three is Bella’s fave and is expected to be a crowd fave because it’s an inspirational song for everyone. While Bella is Jamaican, her music is the perfect fusion of genres she most appreciates. It’s never “just a reggae/dancehall track”, there’s always some flare…that extra something. Each track on Aura has a different vibe to it but is easily identifiable as a Bella Blair song. “There is a song on Aura for everyone”.
Bella released her first single “Jamaica” in 2016 which resonated with the Jamaican crowd and people in the Jamaican diaspora (UK, USA, Canada..). The infamous David Rodigan introduced Bella to his crowd when he had the single “Jamaica” on his playlist for weeks and the track was well received. The following year when “I Can Do Better” was released, a track from the EP Aura, he made the track a scorcher track and invited Bella to do a recording with BBC 1Xtra when he visited Jamaica and that too was well received.
Blair is expecting great things from the release of her EP Aura as she says each song represents a different side to her. Her mission is to continue creating music with the hopes of evolving into the artiste that she is truly meant to be.
“Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard.”
