NJ based artist Cookie Kawaii Breaking Down Boundaries With a Brand New Single “Relax Your Mind“
This atmospheric track captures the upbeat vibe of the Jersey Club culture. As her hit single “Vibe” becomes certified gold this month, the new single RELAX YOUR MIND is the second single she drops off her upcoming debut project, scheduled to drop later this summer.
She shares, “Relax Your Mind was made for listeners to do exactly what the songs says; it’s a combination of smooth, sultry sounds & of course, my Jersey Club style that everyone is growing to love even more… it’s the perfect introduction to the new vibe I’m creating to set the tone for my debut album.“ States Cookiee Kawaii.
Her remix and video with Tyga last year hit over 5 million views on Youtube, while the original track has amassed over 150 Million Streams. Her debut album will further establish the Jersey Club sound as a staple in the evolving music scene.
Since becoming Kawaii’s breakthrough smash in Feb. 2020, “Vibe,” underscored by a mellifluous dreamscape accented by dance floor-commanding rhymes and a snapping beat, has become a TikTok sensation without a signature dance move or challenge, being used nearly two million times and featured in clips that have generated tens of millions of views. With over 50 Million listens, “Vibe” has quickly become the foremost social media sensation of the year, gracing videos from celebrities and influencers spanning Doja Cat and Perez Hilton to James Charles and gaining momentum as one of TikTok’s biggest success stories.
Cookie says, “I’ve been listening to club music for as long as I can remember, so my interest in making a club song was definitely there from the moment I started making music,” she explains. From a young age, Kawaii cultivated her taste for music at home, born to parents who were both DJs. Between trips to Guitar Center to scope out equipment, she soaked up the sounds of everything spanning jazz to neo-soul playing around the house, getting her first taste of performing as part of a choir while attending Catholic school.
Kawaii is ready to be its torchbearer, bringing her local sound to the masses not just with “Vibe” but also with her ever-growing discography. “This is a time where we could get a little more spotlight on the culture,” she says. “We’ve had a lot of different moments where things have kind of been on the spotlight for us but no one was really there to full force carry the torch. So I feel like this could open a lot of doors for Jersey, and Jersey Club, in total.”
