Ms Gideon Makes A Splash with ‘5 Star’

NOT many new artists can say they’ve had the trajectory that this young singer has had! She blew up in the last year for her work on Yeezir’s smash hit ‘Pretty Vibes’, and has since been cultivating her own identity and brand.

Having just dropped her first full project, an EP titled ‘5 Star’, the artist is continuing to leave her mark in a musical landscape that has been begging for new voices and talent to emerge.

The 24 November release is a five-track ensemble, with features from big names such as Sunny Boy, KP Illest, Skrypt and Page Ethnix.

Most of the production was handled by Solani ‘Mr Glo’ Zulu, while Kallo on the Beat and Mr Andrew produced one track each.

Her voice is gentle, and she has a knack for crafting the kinds of melodies that stick in your mind for a while after. It is a mostly RnB joint, with hints of Afro-pop and hip-hop, making it something you would definitely want to bump on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Overall, the project and the artist have tons of potential. We still see major growth in store for this crooner, both in terms of vocal range and lyricism, but she is certainly on the right track.

‘For My Girls’, the last song on the project, was accompanied by a fresh music video, which already garnered over 10 000 views in the first 10 hours of being on YouTube.

This shows major interest in this artist, with many people paying attention.
