02 Oct Listen: New Face of SA RnB Tony X Drops a Single Titled ‘Lerato’
Punchline Media brings a fresh new face to the RnB local scene. 23-year-old singer/songwriter Tony X has set his eyes on quenching the industry’s thirst for a young and talented male RnB singer – and with the urban industry still struggling to establish itself as a solid mainstream genre, Tony X aims to pioneers the rebirth of the genre.
His latest single Lerato follows the release of his EP ‘Just in Case’ which went on to be featured on JOOX’s hot urban music.
“Lerato is a soft, smooth and colourful ballad that speaks of young, African love. “Got malume right on speed dial”, he sings on the opening verse, expressing his desire to commit to his woman. “I really just wanted to bring it back home,” he says of this new direction.
“While in studio with my producer, PRxFND, we just kept building this song based on what we wanted it to feel like.”
“They got it right in terms of making us feel a certain way and evoking some feelings and memories. Lerato is about realising a love. Like finally finding that love that compliments you in every way. It’s a love that’s always been in your face but it’s like now my eyes are finally open to it and I’m ready to commit.”
