Today, buzzing singer and songwriter Whitney McClain releases her new single, “Cruise.” The track is available to stream and purchase on all major digital retail outlets.
Over a simmering beat, her voice immediately takes center stage, carrying an unshakable hook with confidence, charisma, and charm. Co-written with Marlon McClain II, Davi Jordan and Ralph Stacy, it sets the stage for her forthcoming sophomore EP, due out very soon via Gold Dust LLC.
Whitney teamed up with B-Sides & Badlands to premiere the track prior to its release, and called “Cruise” “a sweltering slow-jam decorated with punctuated guitar licks and horn tones."
About “Cruise”, she commented:
“I wanted to create a record that pushed positivity and hope that, no matter how bad it might seem, we can always work through it if we love one another. Darkness can’t exist in the presence of light. Later, it developed into a love song, but I still think it holds true to the original message.”
With its universal message and undeniable spirit, it’s a natural evolution for Whitney. Emerging in 2015, her debut single, “Bombs Away”, racked up over 1 million views on YouTube. Hot on its heels, she returned with the 2016 EP Nothing To Lose, which spawned three singles that each joined the million views club. Meanwhile, she garnered a nomination from the Independent Music Awards for “Urban EP of the Year.”
However, listeners get to know her like never before on “Cruise” and the new EP. “Cruise” with Whitney now below...
