Now already 12 years on from the release of Ne-Yo’s “Miss Independent”, it’s fair to say that the song is a classic and still to this day, is, an empowering and inspiring anthem for independent women across the world. However despite its success and impact, no artist has managed to come out with a new song with a similar topic that has made a similar impact.
Here to change that is MARKIA, who makes his Stereohearts R&B debut with “Candy”, an irresistibly catchy, high energy R&B/hip-hop/pop crossover banger. “Candy” is an ode to an independent woman that has a very relatable and inspiring message whilst sonically, having a vibe that is sure to get you dancing and feeling great. It has the makings of a song that will be remembered and a continue to be a hit for years to come.
