R&B/Soul Songstress, Tenille Ja’Nae, Releases her Latest Single, “Familiar Strangers”
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Tenille Ja’Nae is a rising R&B/soul artist who also fits comfortably in the adult contemporary genre. A New York transplant, born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Tenille Ja’Nae has taken her experiences to create music that is real, heartfelt, and relevant. Her newest single, “Familiar Strangers,” is one of her most intimate tracks to date. The lyrics paint a picture of two strangers who, while they don’t know each other very well yet, already feel an intense connection with each other. The track also stresses the need to learn the qualities of self-love and self-empowerment. Many of us can relate to this feeling of powerlessness, and the need to look deep inside oneself to find your inner strength.
Drawing frequent vocal comparisons to Whitney Houston, Erykah Badu, with hints of Macy Gray, “Familiar Strangers” combines Tenille Ja’Nae’s soulful vocals and lyrics with a bright, soothing, and catchy acoustic melody. The stories within many of her songs are meant to draw the listener in to reflect on their own life experiences. It’s Tenille’s hope that this storytelling approach to her music will be able to reach the masses and have a positive influence on the lives of others.
“Familiar Strangers” and her previous singles, “Try It Again,” “In My Feelings” and “Too Many Times,” are a great introduction to Tenille Ja’Nae’sunique storytelling style and her classy, contemporary sound.
Get ready to see Tenille Ja’Nae on stages across NYC in the coming months, along with special performances in Los Angeles for BET Week in June and in The Netherlands for a festival appearance later this summer.
