In an email from her publicist, there was QUIÑ, a rising singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Striking like the women I believe she resembles (Beyoncé’s classic beauty and face, and Omahyra Mota’s edge), QUIÑ self-identifies her music as a “fantasy soul”. Before this moment, the 20-year-old was best known for her feature on G-Eazy’s song, ‘Think About You’.

As she carves her way to the top, she has been featured on some notable music blogs and appeared on an episode of REVOLT. She is an industry sweetheart, melting one heart at a time with her galactic brand of R&B. Listen to her new track titled, ‘I AM’. Then, be on the lookout for the release of her debut extended play too. It comes out on Friday, October 28. We’re looking forward to hearing it.

QUIÑ is this year’s most exciting new artist poised to break in 2017. With her spacey R&B sounds and easy going vibes synonymous with West Coast’s coolest scene kids, the singer is fast becoming music’s favourite new act. The 20-year-old made her debut appearing as a feature on rapper G-Eazy’s hot new track ‘Think About You’, a standout on the rapper’s sophomore album. She recently premiered a trailer for her upcoming debut EP called GALACTICA on The FADER.

From California, she’ll remind you of a Erykah Badu / Corrine Bailey Rae hybrid and leave you satiated on a cool Sunday night and take you to space… Literally. QUIÑ actually collaborated with Apple Music this Summer as one of the artist who’s music they’re sending to actual space. For a taste of her live, check out QUIÑ’s session on REVOLT which aired last month. She’s set to release her first EP, entitled GALACTICA on October 21, she is looking to break barriers and blend genres with a new sound she has dubbed, fantasy soul.
