Souly releases new track "Goner" featuring Audrey Mika


Island Records

Today, experimental and sultry singer Souly Had returns to claim 2020 as his year with a brand new single “Goner” out today. 19 year-old rising star Audrey Mika lends her silky vocals to the perfectly crafted track about two lovers in different headspaces.

Both renowned for holding nothing back, the duo are equal players in a twisted game of lies and betrayal, introducing a sharp hook: “Everybody ends up leaving. Eventually the death of me. I rest in peace. I’m definitely a goner, off the deep end.” Through the celestial vocals of Audrey and the crashing fluidity of Souly’s witty soundscape, this boldness comes just in time for summer, offering listeners the necessary motivation one needs to leave “cuffing season” behind and dive head-first into singledom. With more releases on the horizon, this catchy track only solidifies Souly’s upward climb.

It doesn’t stop there. Since his early introduction to fans from his covers online, Souly Had has continued to build his fan base relying on his electric energy and his boy-ish "around the way" charm that when prompted-- seemingly melts away leaving his fierce vibes, rhythmically progressive, positive music that resonates with critics and fans alike. With more music coming this year, stay tuned for Souly, one to watch for 2020.

"His music resembles R&B love songs with a modern hip-hop twist, and melodies that’ll hook you from the start." – Crowdsurfer Magazine

"Whether he’s talking about young love or heartbreak, and whether you relate to it or not, there’s no denying that his music is something you can vibe with." – Crowdsurfer Magazine

“Rooted in his origins but also dead set on the progress of the future, Souly is an artist to watch if you’re into the idea that real music and real artists might be one of the only good things to resurface in 2020.” – noisetrend


Souly Had is a singer/song­writer/producer from Duanesburg, NY (just outside Albany, NY). As a member of the hip-hop collective Entreband, a crew of self-starting, like-minded artists and creatives, he has developed a pop/R&B sound all his own. It’s a far cry from when he was making the rounds at local rap shows at age 16. As a digital imaging student at Community College, he would "go on YouTube and try to find dope music," he told Times Union, his hometown newspaper last summer. Before long, he was making beats on his iPhone and eventually through Beat Pad. As he began working with Entreband, his cohorts Tom C Bumpz, MostlyEverything, mac moon, and local platinum-selling producer Purpdogg, Souly Had combined rapping with more R&B-styled singing, experimenting with melodies and arrangements. The positive comments he received on his Soundcloud account convinced him that he was heading in the right direction.
