Summer jam: MonicaBlaire’s “Only You”

MonicaBlaireMusic Review

The best summers, the ones that go down in history, are oftentimes defined by good events, good weather and great songs.

MonicaBlaire is starting this summer off right with the release of her new single, “Only You,” from her upcoming EP “The { } Between.”

Shifting, strong melodic beats carry MonicaBlaire ’s flawless rich vocals to deliver her latest endeavor. This ode to love paints the portrait of a woman in deep, satisfying love.

Is MonicaBlaire  trying to tell us something?

“The song is very personal. At the time the record was coming together, there was a special someone,” MonicaBlaire says. “But music has always been my boyfriend.”

She says the song is really about those quiet moments when you let your mind wander to the possibility of a full, all-encompassing love relationship. Anyone not in love, in like or crushing on a “boo” will surely want to after hearing this song.

“All women, at some point, have those thoughts,” MonicaBlaire  said, “It’s really about the idea of being swept in.”

And fans will definitely be swept in with this certified summer jam because it’s not just a love song.

The beat is so infectious and hot that it will surely be in heavy rotation on every radio station, in every club, on Jefferson, Belle Isle, Seven Mile and everywhere in between, and if you’re smart, in your playlist.

“Only You” is part of a series of new singles that MonicaBlaire  plans to release over the next few months leading up to the release of “The { } Between,”  which is due out sometime this year.

It’s been a little over six years since MonicaBlaire’s first album “Portraits of Me” was released. MonicaBlaire  has been busy the years since with performing, growing her brand, becoming a 2010 Kresge Performing Arts Fellow, creating music and staying in touch with her fans.

“Only You” will be available on Amazon, iTunes and all digital music outlets June 25.

Catch a live performance by MonicaBlaire  and celebration of the release June 28 at Campus Martius Park in Detroit.
