After collaborating with the iconic rapper Nas on ‘Hard To Love Somebody’ and writing ‘Spring Day’ for BTS, the song that helped the K-Pop group break into the US charts, Arlissa was ready to rebuild on her own terms.
Wanting longtime fans to be able to engage with her new music, Arlissa posted an acoustic version of her heartfelt song ‘Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie’ to Facebook. Melodically rich, lyrically direct, vocally mighty – Arlissa strikes a chord in the purest form, and to date it has racked up an astounding 45 million views on Facebook alone, along with a further 3m streams on Spotify and 4m on YouTube.
A meteoric and truly modern rise for an artist who never did things conventionally. And she says “the way I’m doing it now feels absolutely right”.
