Maintaining incredible momentum this year, GRAMMY® Award-nominated East London born Jamaican R&B songstress Tiana Major9 unveils a brand new single and music video entitled “Try Peace” today. Listen to “Try Peace” HERE and watch the music video HERE. It paves the way for her anxiously awaited new Fool Me Once EP, arriving March 15. Pre-order/Pre-save HERE.
Over a slow drip of bass, guitar, finger snaps, and sparse beats, her angelic voice touches the soul. It climaxes on an emotionally charged chorus as she ponders, “Maybe I should try peace,” flexing her range in the process. In the accompanying visual, she pulls up in a red vintage convertible in a slick red fit. The intimate close-ups capture the anxiety in the lyrics as she sings directly to the camera making the connection.
She continues to cruise following the fiery “2 Seater” [feat. Smino]. In addition to piling up hundreds of thousands of streams, The FADER hailed it as “a tender, playful song about love,” while UPROXX dubbed it “a romantic effort that presents a couple who nurtures their relationship through their love for music and relaxing drives with the top down.” In addition to plugs from REVOLT, The Line of Best Fit, and more, Rated R&B noted, “Tiana Major9 has found a secret, intimate place to speak comfortably to her muse on what she’s producing next in his honor. The hideaway is a ‘2 Seater’.” With hundreds of millions of streams combined and widespread acclaim, she’s primed for a massive 2022.
She’s also participating in The Motown Records Creator Program Supported by Google, which empowers women of color in the music industry. As reported by Billboard, it will find and support “the next outstanding woman content creator, videographer, or creative producer/director” with the chance to collaborate with Motown executives and artists and tell the story of the label’s women, including Tiana Major 9, of course.
Right now, Tiana Major9 is supporting Jazmine Sullivan on the Heaux Tales Tour. Following the first three dates, the six-week jaunt visits major markets coast-to-coast and concludes on March 30 at House of Blues Chicago in Chicago, IL.
