First Listen: BLKGLD sisters want to "Stay Focused"

(March 3, 2020) Many talented artists seeking their big break turn to social media to build their fanbase. That intense utilization of social media favored identical twins Shereen and Sophia (aka BLKGLD), who blew up with over one million hits performing covers from Frank Ocean and other hitmakers.  Blessed with a father who sang like Nat King Cole, BLKGLD is fueled by heroes such as Whitney and Boyz II Men who inform the duo’s 90’s R&B flavor.  

(March 3, 2020) Many talented artists seeking their big break turn to social media to build their fanbase. That intense utilization of social media favored identical twins Shereen and Sophia (aka BLKGLD), who blew up with over one million hits performing covers from Frank Ocean and other hitmakers.  Blessed with a father who sang like Nat King Cole, BLKGLD is fueled by heroes such as Whitney and Boyz II Men who inform the duo’s 90’s R&B flavor.  

Our latest First Listen feature presents BLKGLD’s debut original single, “Stay Focused” (BNDR Music), wrapped in a gorgeous island rhythm track.  The effortless vocal exchanges and xylophone fills fuel this attractive jam that is all about wanting to be noticed by someone special: “I’ve been craving your touch and you know what to say./So I find it hard to leave.” Between the tight vocals and irresistible beats on “Stay Focused,” BLKGLD has crossover potential from the R&B/hip-hop airwaves to the dance floor. Time will tell if BLKGLD’s climb through the social media ranks will translate into a bigger artistry platform, but for now we’re going to enjoy the ride with BLKGLD and “Stay Focused.”
