Halle makes a splash with the release of her debut single “Angel.” Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, songwriter, and composer Theron “NeffU” Feemster (Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo), the track weaves a cinematic soundscape with a R&B groove punctuated by orchestral arrangements.
This backdrop highlights her skyscraping range as the powerful, provocative, and passionate lyrics captivate, “Heaven knows your wings can weigh you down, but angels make a way somehow.” After the widespread conversation around The Little Mermaid, “Angel” offers a reflection on Halle’s commitment to empower and uplift young women around the world, “but if we fall, we fall on clouds.”
The track arrives with an exquisite official video directed by Wendy Morgan (Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Lous And The Yakuza), which makes it feel cinematic.
“Angel” made its global premiere on BET Soul, BET Her, MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.
“This song for me is so very special and near and dear to my heart,” says Halle. “With everything I’ve gone through the past 3-4 years, suddenly finding myself in this bubble of all these eyes and new opinions, it was easy for me to feel doubt in myself and who I was.“
She continues, “this song for me was my climb out of those feelings, a mantra and promise to myself that the work I’m doing here on earth matters and that I matter. I wanted to be able to embrace and be proud of myself and who I am naturally through and through. I hope other brown and black girls and everyone in general feel embraced, respected, and inspired hearing the words of this song.”
