Grammy-nominated artist, songwriter, and producer Gwen Bunn ended 2020 on a high note with a string of singles showcasing her talented voice and highly valued skills as a hit maker. Bunn’s single, “Between The Lines,” featuring her idol Faith Evans and sampling “Soon As I Get Home,” continues to make an impact, recently entering the top 15 on the R&B radio chart and amassing over five million streams worldwide. Today, she is sharing the official video for the single, which premiered exclusively on BET. It was directed by Sam McKnight and reunites the two generational voices of contemporary R&B.
Faith previously spoke about the collaboration, “Gwen’s A&R, Jermi Thomas is fam and he reached out to let me know that Gwen wanted me to work on one of her records. When they sent me the track, I was honored that she sampled my song, ‘Soon As I Get Home’ and wanted me to be on it. I went in and laid backgrounds, ad-libs and wrote a new verse…and here we are! The timing of “Between The Lines” coming now is so crazy, especially because it’s also the same week as the 25th Anniversary of my classic single. I think it’s amazing to see a dope new artist like Gwen introducing my music to this generation’s R&B fans….She’s next!!!”
Just prior to “Between the Lines,” Bunn released the soulful “Don’t Go.” The single was selected as BBC 1xtra’s track of the week in the UK upon release and added to NPR’s NMF Playlist. Listen to “Don’t Go” HERE.
