Off the back of her first single of 2021, ‘Joy‘, Falana returns with the release of her long-anticipated EP, “Rising”.
The Rising EP is themed around women’s empowerment. It’s a journey of the different emotions and stories that we all experience, but told from a female perspective, through song and music. Stories of self-love, personal struggle, romantic love, and self-perspective. Through her own lens of living and experiencing different cultures (Nigeria, Canada, United Kingdom, Cuba, Denmark), whether personally or professionally, Falana’s EP has a unique perspective and sound that is truly global. The project’s producers and contributors also reflect this global story: KingBjmn-USA (Future, DJ Snake, Kranium), Dale Virgo-Jamaica (Rihanna, Drake), Tboy-UK (Burna Boy), Lord Quest-Canada (SchoolBoyQ, Raekwon, Bosco), Davay O-Nigeria (Adekunle Gold), Tyler Richards-USA.
Falling between genres that have influenced her own journey, from Soul and Pop to R&B and Afrobeat, with the Rising EP, Falana has been able to hit the balance she’s been searching for her whole life. According to her, “It’s funny how things fall together slowly and then all at once. I feel like I’ve really found my voice. And I think once an artist finds their voice, they become unstoppable.”
