On the track, an airy beat brushes up against her smooth delivery as she warns, “I might throw it back on your man like you used to.” With attitude and swagger, she continues to flex with a flirty promise, “Your man coming home with me, because I know he don’t like the way you do.” The track highlights her dynamic vocals, provocative lyrics, and undeniable energy.
It arrives on the heels of “What’s Ur Sign?” The latter has amassed over 1 million streams to date in addition to reeling in critical acclaim. Billboard named it among the “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks of the Week” and claimed, “the track is catchy and confident, setting the laid-back singer up for an equally lovable follow-up release.” Bongmines Entertainment attested, “‘What’s Ur Sign?’ contains a relatable narrative, flirtatious lyrics, and an ear-pleasing vocal flow.”
Reyanna exploded with the buzzing single “So Pretty” and its Tyga-assisted Official Remix. Right out of the gate, HIGHSNOBIETY named her among “Creators to Watch Right Now” and raved, “Reyanna Maria is the face of a new league of home-grown artists who are using social media to take the reigns of their careers and cultivating their presence in the music industry on their own terms.” Meanwhile, she also picked up plugs from Forbes, HotNewHipHop, and more.
“So Pretty” initially came to life when Reyanna sang on a duet challenge on TikTok. The spur-of-the-moment sound that was created from video exploded with over 20 million views and 1 million-plus TikTok videos. On its heels, the original track posted up 45 million-plus streams and counting to date. Videos using “So Pretty” were created by Chrissy Teigen (34M Followers), Bella Poarch (56.4M Followers), Alicia Keys (20.7M Followers), Vanessa Bryant (14.3M Followers) and many more!
Even when clutching the tiny microphone of her wired earbuds and serenading a smartphone camera, Reyanna Maria exudes the kind of charisma and attitude meant for the global spotlight. Within a few months’ time, the 19-year-old Melbourne-based Filipino songstress has already inspired 1 million-plus Tik Tok videos and racked up over 12 million streams. By the age of fourteen, she started to fill a notebook with lyrics and song ideas. She posted covers online and mimicked idols such as Ariana Grande and Jhené Aiko. As part of an online challenge, she went live on TikTok to sing on a beat. The initial clip of “So Pretty” exploded with nearly 10 million views as they finished the song together in two more successive posts, totaling 22 million views. Victor Victor Worldwide founder Steven Victor signed Reyanna on the spot once he found out about her video. Now, the official release of “So Pretty” [feat. Tyga] formally introduces Reyanna Maria as a fiery force for pop and R&B.
