21-year-old Toronto rising R&B music star Ebhoni returns with a brand new stunning single “Rep It“
“Rep It” sees the songstress take a shift towards darker, auto-tuned production while still capturing the assuredly frank pop sensibility that sees her more comfortable in her own skin than ever before.
A product of both faded nighttime and the melancholic reflection of the morning after, Ebhoni’s matter-of-fact verses remain in the same harshly ephemeral gleam that highlights her own personal heartbreak into an evocative anecdote that feels both universally relatable and unexpectedly transcendent.
Ebhoni says, “These last few months have been what felt the darkest time in my life, one being faced with a really bad relationship/situation.” Ebhoni continues “and while I was in the midst of it all nothing made sense. “Rep It” is truly me reflecting on that relationship and making this song provided me with so much clarity. It is a reflection of that trash relationship and how I’d never allow myself to get to a place like that again.”
Ebhoni’s string of animated, confident R&B singles has won both commercial and critical success. In the middle of a productive 2019 run, Pitchfork wrote that she is “reclaiming the Toronto R&B crown for women.” Throughout her career, Ebhoni’s made a point to partner specifically with Black-owned businesses, support other women artists and workers, and to uplift the local LGBTQ+ community, which she’s done through efforts like hosting Pride Toronto.
