R&B Artist Taliwhoah Releases Smooth Single "Love Cycle"
With a voice like butter, anything Taliwhoah sings is bound to be beautiful, but on her latest single “Love Cycle,” this is truer than it’s ever been. Having recently come out as bi, Tali’s newest tune tackles the truth about “forbidden” love, using her music as a vehicle to get real about the fight to be herself and to love who she wants.
The last time we covered Taliwhoah, she had just dropped a total banger of a breakup anthem. Now, she turns tender with “Love Cycle”’s soft reflection. The track opens with staccato drum pad beats, distant synth shimmers, and a bluesy, woozy rhythm line, all of these slow-burn R&B elements steadying a sultry arrangement for Tali’s emotive vocals to ride on. Among the simmering heat of this ultra-smooth single, Tali confronts the tough stuff bubbling in a family steeped in tradition, while she still fights to preserve the love she deserves. It thrums with sexy R&B rhythms but there’s a lot of heart and hurt to it hidden beneath its silky soundscape.
