Born in a big artistic family to a British-Nigerian-Lebanese mom and Jamaican dad, Talitha Cross had a very roundabout introduction to music. Both her mom Toyin Adekale and auntie Maizie Williams were in the influential band Boney M, who according to many including The Independent helped define the late disco-pop 1970s era. Therefore Tali since she was little would spend hours watching and studying their VHS tapes and learning from the very best. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
This year, Taliwhoah signed to and released her single “Details,” which gained praise and support from the likes of DIY, The Quietus, The Fader, Complex, Earmilk and NME to name a few.
Hot off her EP New Wave Order Vol. 1, she gets up close and personal in her official new video for “Meds.” The song is a hot and heavy blend of R&B, pop, dancehall and electronica. Led by Talitha’s sultry Monica/Brandy-esque voice taking flight over a pumping beat, the track takes a stimulating journey throughout with its minimalistic yet creatively experimental production. The video finds Taliwhoah confronting the camera to call someone out for their behavior. Each camera cut places Taliwhoah in a different room wearing different clothing – she embodies every woman who dares to speak out in a toxic relationship.
Tali’s lyrics are honest and straight to the point. She says: “Sometimes some people need a taste of their own medicine to truly understand the way their selfishness is affecting others. ‘Meds’ was written so I could get that message across to a certain someone loud and clear lol.”
