Cocanina releases personal manifesto with “Do My Best,” showcasing her authentic, vulnerable, and cathartic sound

Published

on

Cocanina is a singer from Toronto, Canada, on the brink of motherhood and stardom.

Cocanina is a songstress from Toronto, Canada, that is blooming with potential, as she just released her new track, “Do My Best.” The song is cathartic as it is about her journey into motherhood, a journey into the unknown, so Cocanina leaves it all out on the track, claiming that no matter what, she will “Do Her Best.” 

She talks about her trials and tribulations as someone who was not expecting to be pregnant yet still feels blessed with the opportunity.

“I did my first ultrasound thinking I had an ulcer, and they told me I was pregnant,” Cocanina. “I went straight to the studio and tracked the song. When I heard the heartbeat and realized I was going to be a mom, I never felt so alive.” 

The track is introspective yet has this mesmerizing flow and electrifying tune that makes the track pure anthem! Cocanina keeps it real, even admitting she might slip up and not be the perfect mom, but she will always love and do everything for her kid. And that is all that matters. On the track, Cocanina serenades how she and her kid are “meant to be together, like the Earth around the Sun.”

Cocanina’s song is a vulnerable proclamation, as she talks about her future, her relationship with her future kid, and just feelings of concern, as she explains, “no longer being single, forever an attachment. Being a mom and accepting the fact that life is going to change in a major way. Finding the light in the situation and being excited and terrified at the same time.” 

Cocanina’s “Do My Best” hits in all the right ways as she reflects on not pursuing music in the song to being scared she won’t be a good mother. Cocanina leaves her listeners with this relatable fear of being a good parent, portraying that authentically and realistically, making her stand out even more as an artist and a lyricist. 

Be sure to stay in touch with Cocanina via social media Instagram, Twitter, and Tik Tok @Cocanina5, her website Website: www.cocanina.com, and on Facebook: cocaninaslimnina to see any forthcoming music is coming your way! As Cocanina is working on a follow-up to her “401 West” single. As well as a “Caribbean EP for [her] Trinidad people in December, and then a full-length album in February.”

When it comes to the silky-smooth sounds of Neo Soul, there are no finer artists than Adam Ness. Raised in Detroit but now based in Chicago, he is the epitome of a fully-formed talent who is intricate, refined and simply sublime. He’s back with new music, and this time he delivered “Houzkatz” with talented R&B artist Durand Bernarr. The song is a masterpiece and puts Ness’ talents on full display.

Benefitting from an education in Gospel, the lush sounds that tug at the emotional heart strings gave him the building blocks to pursue a career that is delivering music of the highest quality. Touching people on both a spiritual and musical level, he has uniquely developed a style that sits comfortably alongside artists like Frank Ocean, D’Angelo, Maxwell and the eternally brilliant Erykah Badu.

Lush harmonies, deep grooves, inspirational lyrics and fresh perspectives await the audience as Adam delivers on every single promise he has ever made. Destroying stereotypical storylines with his sumptuous songs, he is building on his first critically acclaimed album released in 2019 titled ‘Sagittarius Volume 1’.

Completing the emotional circle, ‘Sagittarius Volume 2’ is about Adam’s journey through young adulthood and a testament to an artist led by the flames of desire. Meticulously crafted with exquisite touches, the album is a clear example of why he sells out venues in Chicago and beyond.

With nearly a million plays on Spotify alone, audiences are beginning to take serious note of Adam Ness as his music is undeniably spreading the positive message the world needs right now. His humility and burning desire to share a message of love, peace and hope transcends the every day challenges that people endure. There is so much beauty in his work that it is hard to imagine a future without it.

“It’s ok to be yourself and get the things you’re deserving of. Being soft doesn’t diminish your power. It elevates and inspires.”

LA native AQ is bringing all the vibes this summer. His newest track, “Too Comfortable” just dropped and is setting the tone for what audiences can expect from him going forward. The song is definitelya vibe and showcases how AQ is taking his talent to new levels as an artist. The new visual takes place on the beach, where AQ is seen catching a vibe and singing to a woman, telling her not to get “Too Comfortable.”

AQ credits growing up in Los Angeles as the reason for making him who he is today. He says that a large part of his storytelling references the experiences he’s had in the city. “I want people to hear the sincerity & passion in the music,” AQ shared during a recent interview. “The way I talk, the slang I use in my songs, the places I reference in the music. When I think of LA as a whole, I’d say I am the city, the city is me. I love Los Angeles, it made me who I am.

The former basketball player-turned-recording artist is on a mission to get to the top with his music, and tells stories through his experiences in Los Angeles to help drive that narrative. “LA plays a major role in the way I make music,” he said.

“The LA dance culture is huge for me, I grew up partying, going to house parties, teen clubs and we would really dance at the events. So the beats I choose definitely have a certain groove to them that I want the listener to be able to dance.”

As seen in recent records such as “Top 10” ft. LA Higgz, AQ is no stranger to the life of the party and wants his music to help people have a good time, whether they’re at a party or vibing and driving down PCH. “Too Comfortable” is just the latest piece of work from the emcee and is just the beginning of what he’s prepared to do

. He still has a main goal of wanting listeners to “feel something” whenever they hear his music, no matter what that feeling may be. He will be releasing his full length project ‘Hollywood Hurts’ on October 8, which will see features from Casey Veggies, J. Star, and WaveMVP. In the meantime, keep up with all things AQ by following him @aquinn_ on Instagram! Check out the video for “Too Comfortable” below.
