Music And Other Drugs have been huge fans of Denitia for some time now and we are happy to share her new single “Never Told You” today. The track is smooth and melts into your soul from beginning to end. The song is a meditation on coming to terms with one’s feelings and about finding truth when you step back and see things from a new perspective. Denitia says of the song,
“There are some moments in life where you realize you’ve been in the same place for too long, it’s time to move around. Knowing what it is you want is key. Passion can only drive you so far if you don’t know where you want to go. It’s beautiful to have aim. As a queer black artist, I think its extra important, because there may not be too many blueprints out there for us. God bless all those that came before, but relatively, there may not be a lot of people I can relate to in the daily barrage of media, culture at large. But I know I need to keep dreaming big, shedding the heavy and be the reflection I want to see. Never Told You is about opening up and sharing that journey, being in that process.”
This song was written and recorded entirely by Denitia in her home studio in the Rockaways. The Ceilings EP, released in 2017 on Styles Upon Styles records, defined a new sound and direction for the former half of acclaimed underground R&B duo Denitia & Sene, and this is the second in a series of 2018 singles from Denitia.
