New Music: Maijah & Laurentis – Know My Name

Maijah is a Portland, USA-based alternative pop artist who I’ve featured a couple of times before on the blog. I’m a big fan of her moody approach to pop and R&B. Her latest is a team up with California-based artist Laurentis. It’s called Know My Name.

Opening with dreamy harp, Know My Name is the kind of track that draws you in straight away. Soon added are bass beats, percussion and Laurentis’s rapped vocals and in no time you’re caught in its sultry groove. Maijah’s soulful vocals join in for the second verse and you’re lifted to empowering bliss.

Laurentis and Maijah were first introduced to each other through Instagram and have been working together for over a year. They certainly seem to have musical chemistry if Know My Name is anything to go by. You can check out the track below.
