Rising R&B star Ebony Riley (Riley Montana, Inc./Interscope Records) is back with her first single of 2024, a soft but empowering single titled “Mirror.” In the song, the singer gets introspective and writes an intimate letter to herself exploring who she is, what she wants, and what she deserves for herself. The song is produced by the legendary duo of Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox.

“Gotta be more than the sex cuz I know that I’m pressure / I’m holding on for the better I need something special (yea yea yea) / I gotta love all of me / I gotta love all of me first / My only problem is I’m so addicted to hurt / But I dare pray for my reflection / As I fail at loving myself / It’s like I’m chasing the wind and never facing then it’s going nowhere,” Riley sings.

“Mirror” is a personal introduction into the next stage of Riley’s career, and a warm up to a blow-out debut album that’s full of variety, nostalgia and personal experiences. Riley kick started the rollout of “Mirror” with an exclusive Chanel/Vogue campaign that aired on Tik Tok Live, and followed that up by teasing the song on June 1 at the SummerStage in Central Park concert series in New York City. Although it’s been some time since the public has heard from Ebony, she’s stayed on her grind, perfecting her sound and preparing for new music. Riley offers her audience a peek into what her life has been like since her debut EP with a special visualizer accompanying the new single. The camera captures behind-the-scenes clips of a larger content piece that highlights Riley’s life as a musician and model, grinding to the finish line while wrapping up production for “Mirror” in Atlanta and racing to shoot a campaign for Chanel in London.

Riley had a strong 2023 with the release of her debut EP ebony. She released a handful of music videos for “Get Along Better,” “Deuce Deuce,” “Save Me,” and “I Could Feel It,” while also tearing up the live shows with moving performances as an opening act for Jazmine Sullivan and Coco Jones. One particular live performance was at the 2023 BET Awards where Riley blew the audience away with a powerful set during the show’s LA Basement Showcase. Riley has also been receiving praise from a multitude of reputable outlets such as Billboard, Okayplayer, and NYLON while also landing on Complex’s 2023 R&B Artist to Watch list.

On the fashion front, Riley starred in the campaign for Beyoncé’s Renaissance album in collaboration with Balmain while also working the runway and campaigns for luxurious fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta, and more. She was also featured in Vogue France Magazine and closed the year out with a feature interview in Vogue Magazine. This year she’s continues to work and has collaborated with the likes of Chanel, Condé Nast, Vogue, Audemars Piguet and Tommy Hilfiger.
