Track Of The Day 17/3 – Amaarae

'Reckless & Sweet'

Amaarae is a force to be reckoned with. The Bronx-born, Ghanaian-American artist is an all-rounder, a true multi-hyphenate who excels in everything she chooses to place her name again. Her 2020 album ‘THE ANGEL YOU DON’T KNOW’ won overwhelming acclaim, rooted in a defiant sense of energy she could truly call her own.

Since then, she’s spent time finessing her skills, releasing some one-off singles. Now, it’s time to strike.

New album ‘Fountain Baby’ is incoming on powerhouse label Interscope, with Amaarae sharing a blast of fresh innovation. Out now, ‘Reckless & Sweet’ finds the performer comfortable in her own skin, working with the utmost confidence.

Soulful and ruthlessly on-point, ‘Reckless & Sweet’ races out of the traps, an attention-grabbing experience that pushes aside her peers to claim centre-stage. Amaarae comments…

Coming back after so long, I had a lot of time to think and reflect on what I wanted my message to be last time it was about confidence, this time it’s about love and faith. This is my sexiest video to date and what I love most about it is that young black women and men are about to see what our new energy is for 2023 and beyond. Moving forward we’re grown and sexy.

We’re going to make sure we always look our best, talk our best, walk our best, and most of all we’re bringing love and romance back!

Reckless and Sweet’ is a sexy song. It’s about being intentional with the ways we make and give love. It’s about finding the inner sensuality and confidence without yourself and sharing that with the world. As an artist that is exactly where I’m at at the moment

Tune in now.
