(New York, NY): Today, Renee Holiday releases “Temptation” — a reggae-infused track where her voice floats perfectly over a masterfully layered Egyptian-like beat. She lays down her lyrics in a buttery smooth voice that melds into the full richness of someone much older than she. "Temptation / On the planet Mars / I could easily go to the stars" Renee croons as the instrumentals vibrate in the background.

The new song follows the late 2019 release of ”soulful track” (Rated R&B) “Ain’t Got No Love” and a cover of Patti Smith’s “People Have The Power” where Renee's voice “takes the form of a warm trickle of water” (FEMMUSIC).

Listen to “Ain’t Got No Love”:

Recently, Renee played two intimate showcases at the Standard Hotel, where she traversed both coasts performing in Los Angeles and New York. At the showcases, she reached new heights and brought “intricate soundscapes to her eclectic melodies” (Knockturnal).

Renee Holiday’s (formerly Shaprece) eclectic tastes and spiritual journeys have resulted in edgy yet smooth projects like 2014’s Molting — an ethereal EP carried by melodies — and her 2016 debut C.O.A.L.S -- a progressive album that showcases her range as a powerhouse vocalist on diverse soundscapes. Early in her tenure, she built buzz as a featured guest on songs by Seattle-based hip-hop artists and performed the local festival circuit, garnering praise from The New York Times, Revolt and Spin among other outlets.

Raised in a musical household to the sounds of Stevie Wonder and Al Green, Renee Holiday’s roots are embedded in soul. Her formal declaration to become a singer came at the age of five when she danced across her living room to a VHS tape of a Sade concert. Since then, she has been subconsciously preparing for a life of performance, participating in cheerleading, gymnastics, theater productions and school recitals as a young girl.
