Today, 21-year-old pop singer-songwriter Salem Ilese unveils her new single “Coke & Mentos,” available everywhere. The new single follows up the breakout success of her August 2020 hit, “Mad At Disney.”
Gaining significant momentum on TikTok, “Mad At Disney” has sparked the creation of over 3M videos, has been streamed 236.5M times globally, and has been featured on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist for over 10 weeks. Salem’s latest effort is poised to surpass that, serving as another irresistible record.
“Coke & Mentos” shares some of the same addictive qualities as her breakout hit: memorable lyrics and melodic earworms, as well as a unique take on love. Salem Ilese wisely discusses how often moments of intense exhilaration are inevitably short-lived. Check out the accompanying music video, directed by Haley Bowman, below.
