Able to pivot on a dime from hard-nosed boom bap bangers to softly sung, melodious R&B love songs, Siya is one of New York’s most versatile emcees. Combining her two modes for a wavy, piano-led slow jam, Siya heads south for “Houston Girls,” her latest single. Recruiting H-Town native Kirko Bangz, who shows out with an infectious auto-tuned verse, the two rappers spit sensitive bars about the strong and independent ladies who reside in Beyonce’s hometown. Premiered by HipHopDX, “Houston Girls” is a lush, textured, and romantic track that showcases Siya’s charisma as a singer and a deftness as an emcee. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
The latest single from Siya’s upcoming project 383 – For Roosevelt, “Houston Girls” follows “Your Choice,” the Elevator Magazine-premiered first single from the project, showcasing Siya’s assured confidence, her ability to craft a hook, and her impressive lyricism. Siya’s most complete artistic statement yet, 383 – For Roosevelt drops on July 28th.
Born in California to drug-addicted parents, but raised in Brooklyn’s hip-hop crazy Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, home to Jay-Z, Mos Def and The Notorious B.I.G., Siya is ready to raise her proile in 2017. Last year, Siya released the fully-formed SIYAvsSIYA, her debut album featuring an appearance from Sage The Gemini, equally split between sinister street rhymes and wavy, electronic-influenced love songs. Beyond music, Siya found success as a television personality, appearing in all three seasons as the breakout star of Oxygen’s Sisterhood of Hip-Hop, a T.I.-produced reality series starring five female rappers who navigate their way through the male-dominated music industry. Earlier this year, Siya dropped a Valentine’s Day gift to her fans with the Commitment EP, a textured and lovely collection of rap-n-b love songs and an appetizer for the more substantial 383 – For Roosevelt. She recently joined United Talent Agency (UTA) for representation in both film and music spheres. “Siya’s time is now,” says Mike G, her agent at UTA. “Between her amazing album and work ethic, it’s just a matter of time before the world knows how talented she is.”
