New York-based, vocalist and songwriter on the rise Bria Lee debuts the video for her latest single “One Shot” featuring Fat Joe, today—watch and share HERE!
Premiering on Ones To Watch, Bria explains the inspiration behind the video saying, “The beginning of the ‘One Shot’ music video pays tribute to one of my father’s favorite movies, Scarface. The video depicts a strong woman taking control of her toxic relationship.” “One Shot” sets the stage for further music to come from Bria Lee in 2019.
Growing up in a musical household in Providence, Rhode Island, Bria Lee’s mother sang and played guitar and her father was fascinated with artists and musicians, urging her to not let her talents go to waste. At the age of 17, Bria matriculated at New York’s Manhattan School of Music where she studied classical piano; but she soon found herself aimless in an 80-hour grind. Between waiting tables and working at a pizzeria, Bria wedged in restaurant gigs and quickly became a fixture on the NYC jazz scene as a singer. But it would be one fateful record label showcase that changed everything. After the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Bria signed to Republic Records and now steps forward with a pair of singles, “Purple Clouds” and “One Shot” [feat. Fat Joe], that exude a sensually emotive sensibility that fuses rugged hip-hop beats with sublime, edgy pop and allude to her forthcoming debut album.
