Bay Area-native Janel Marisse was destined for this. Having grown up in the era of the Spice Girls, and later, Destiny’s Child and Aaliyah, Janel was exposed to strong women in entertainment whose respective sounds fused various genres to form an eclectic mix of Pop, R&B, and hip-hop.
In her latest single, Janel Marisse is not as innocent as she may seem. Though lauded for her sweet vocals and angelic melodies, she sheds her “good girl” persona in new single “Off The Record.” It serves as the lead single for her forthcoming EP, The New Order, slated to drop on October 30.
Speaking on the record, Janel stated: “It’s a straight-up ladies anthem, it makes you feel good!” The Filipina singer serves her buttery vocals over the sexy single, demanding her partner to keep things “off the record.” The track is a little sneaky, a little sultry, perfect for those late nights with no strings.
Janel Marisse is now readying fans for her next big project. The EP, inspired by fantasy and dark magic, marks a new chapter for the Filipina singer. Janel sheds her veil of innocence in order to embrace the dark past she has faced. “People think I’m an angel but I’ve experienced darkness,” she explains. “I’m not this docile person, I’m ready to show my genuine self.” While we wait, check out her latest single below.
