Listening to her new music, you wouldn’t guess Duval is a teenager, in fact she shows a lot of longevity as her music is hauntingly beautiful. Her latest single, “Cinnamon Gum” takes us through the emotions of missing someone you’ve long since broken up with, but can’t seem to stop forgetting about them.

Summer’s come and gone a couple times / And they don’t play that same song on the radio / There’s still a piece of you I keep wrapped up in my mind / It starts out subtle / Blowing bubbles / Baby, you’re in the air

Duval says of the single: “There is strength in vulnerability. I don’t think you have to act like everything’s okay to be strong.”

Duval writes songs to have an outlet for her feelings. “When I’m feeling something and don’t think there is a song I can jam out to, to get me over it, I think, ‘Okay. I guess I need to write one. Because if I’m feeling this way, chances are there’s someone out there who’s feeling this too.’”



She hopes her songs will be able to help others connect to their feelings and feel understood. “I feel so fortunate to be able to have my songs as an outlet for my life, my feelings. To be able to give that to people––to provide an escape, help them feel understood and like they’re not alone. That’s what I want to do with my music.”

Upcoming Pop Artist Isabella Releases Debut Single “Olé” – Watch!

Upcoming pop artist Isabella has just recently released her debut single, “Olé,” along with the music video. Born as Kelly Isabelle Chiappini, Isabella is a Puerto Rican/French singer and songwriter, who currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Isabella’s style is an international sound, combining pop music with a Caribbean Latin flair, with lyrics in English, Spanish and French. In 2016, Isabella collaborated with Capital Records‘ artist, BJ The Chicago Kid, on the single “Love Inside” on his debut album. Isabella’s musical influences includes artists such as La LupeMariah CareyRicky Martin, and Juan Luis Guerra. Isabella is a graduate of the Lycée International and has also attended the Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Colburn School of Performing Arts. This has led Isabella to realize that music is her passion and lead to the release of her debut song, “Olé.”


“Olé,” is the lead single from Isabella’s upcoming untitled EP that is slated to be released in 2017. The song tells the story of a king who is willing to sacrifice everything for the love of the world. It is influenced by gypsy culture and flamenco in southern Spain. The percussion reflects the sounds of Puerto Rico, the diversity of the culture and Isabella’s musical influences. Isabella told Variety Beat:

“Olé is very personal to me as it is about true and everlasting love. It symbolizes a love story between a king and a young woman. It also means more to me than a relationship between two people who deeply love one another; it is a reflection of the past and what will happen in the future because of this love.”

Along with the single, Isabella has released a music video to compliment the song. Isabella talks about the inspiration for the music video:

“Flamenco culture was the main inspiration for the video. I intended to use visuals that would reflect a modern, pop artist version of international Andalusian flamenco. The director and I worked together to have dynamic and colorful visuals that represented both the song’s storyline and myself as an artist.”

“Olé” will also be included on Isabella’s upcoming EP that will feature songs written from a place of passion, and is introspective of what it means to love. The central theme of the EP is everlasting love, with all the songs featuring reoccurring characters and anecdotes from Isabella’s personal life. Be sure to keep an eye out next year for the full EP!

“After the shoot that day [for her Christmas-themed ‘Blame it on the Snow’ video], I went out with this guy my brother set me up with,” Houghton says. “Go big bro, because it was an amazing first date. Afterwards I was jotting down song ideas in the elevator before I even made it to my room.”

“This song is the butterflies. It’s jumping off the cliff before you know anyone’s gonna catch you,” Houghton says. “It’s the delusional belief that the person you just met could be the love of your life.”

Shayla Souliere Shares The Inspiration Behind Her Song “Screw U”

Meet up and coming pop singer, Shayla Souliere, who is from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Back in 2012, she was accepted into a singing contest called “Edmonton Undiscovered,” It was there where Souliere found her true passion in life, music. In late 2013, she came into contact with Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter Alex Cantrall (he has produced/wrote for Beyonce, P!NK, Jojo and more). He took Souliere on as an artist and has been mentoring her ever since!


Flash forward to July 2015 when Souliere teamed up with director, Nayip Ramos, to shoot her music video for her latest single, “Screw U.” With the release of “Screw U” on her YouTube channel in December 2015, the song has gained some notable attention. “Screw U” landed Souliere radio play and interviews with some major radio stations including her hometown radio station, Z99 Regina. The song has also gained some exposure on the popular app, Musical.ly. There, many fans and even some major artists have created musical.ly’s to the song. “Screw U” is an energetic, catchy song that gives a big screw U to past relationships.

Screw U / Yeah you wanted me too / But you had your chance and you screwed it up / Screw U / Middle finger to you / Look around, everybody knows ya suck

Souliere talks about where the inspiration for the song came from:

“For my single “Screw U” I collaborated with my songwriting/production team Alex Cantrall, Jeff Hoeppner, and Rhett Fisher. We recorded this at ES Audio Recording Studio in Burbank, CA. We all sat in the studio and I mentioned to the guys that I had some friends going through issues with their boyfriends and that everyone goes through times in their life where they aren’t getting along with someone or someone’s really annoyed them. That was when we thought up the idea of “Screw U.”

“Screw U” is definitely a song that you do not want to be on the wrong end of. Keep an eye out for future releases from Souliere and for future covers that will be posted to her YouTube channel.
