Sharna Bass continues to prove herself as one of R&B’s most captivating stars with the release of the video for her new single ‘Buss A 9’.
Produced by Rachet (Emeli Sande, Devlin, Krept & Konan), ‘Buss A 9’ is dark and brooding with Sharna Bass executing delicate vocal restraint, allowing her emotion to pierce through via her biting lyricism. Expressing devastating heartbreak and the irrational risks you’d take for love, both the delivery of the audio and the visual are both mesmerizing, raw and hang in the balance between love being both the best and worst feeling that its possible to experience.
At twenty years old, Sharna Bass’ ascension has been an impeccable journey and began as a far cry away from what her music has matured in to at its current stage. At just 13-years-old, Clean Bandit heard her singing in the Tabot Mix Centre and two years later, whilst looking for someone to take on the vocal line of their hit ‘Extraordinary’, they contacted her on Facebook to ask her to record.
Despite the experience being overwhelming, Sharna Bass recorded what would become a number 5 in the Official Charts. The experience set her on a clear path to developing her own sound and profile, and she credits producers such as Rachet with giving her a canvas to ascertain creative freedom as displayed in the formidable ‘Buss A 9’.
