Arlissa – Healing

Arlissa, the London-bred singer-songwriter who last year ignited major buzz with a string of critically acclaimed singles, returns with “Healing,” available today via Def Jam Recordings. “Healing” is the newest advance track from Arlissa’s hotly anticipated debut album set to arrive in 2020.  “Healing,” co-written by Ryan Williamson and Kameron Alexander, was produced by Rykeyz.

The music video for “Healing,” also out today, “was super inspired by Ayahuasca,” said Arlissa. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. It really helps you face your demons and raise your vibration. So with that in mind, the video is all about breaking free from all that binds you; It’s about growth, and rebirth; shedding your skin and becoming the person you were always meant to be.”

Arlissa’s defiant 2019 anthem “We Won’t Move” was included as one of two original compositions on the Def Jam soundtrack for The Hate U Give, the celebrated film adaptation of the Angie Thomas book. The song garnered early buzz when Arlissa debuted it at the movie’s Toronto Film Festival premiere, followed by performances on ABC’s Good Morning America, and Wendy Williams. Arlissa went on to feature on the Ariana Grande helmed soundtrack for last year’s Charlie’s Angels and pen R3HAB and Zayn’s hit song “Flames.”
 
Arlissa had been piling up a string of independent hits when Brit DJ/producer Jonas Blue’s electronic remix of “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie” broke through in early 2018.  She debuted the acoustic version of “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie” on NBC’s Today Show, as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month. The performance sent the song into viral overdrive, virtually tripling the worldwide streams and views of the original.

The Hate U Give Soundtrack

Def Jam Recordings – the iconic label and global brand synonymous with hip-hop culture – has partnered with 20th Century Fox on the October 12th release of the Official Soundtrack to the highly-anticipated film The Hate U Give, based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas.

Def Jam Recordings’ next generation of stars, Arlissa and Bobby Sessions, join an all-star cast of contemporary and legendary artists including Kendrick LamarPusha TLogicJadakiss, and Tupac Shakur for the official movie soundtrack of THE HATE U GIVE, October 12th.

Arlissa and Bobby Sessions introduce new, previously unreleased songs on the soundtrack, which Variety raves “cleverly mimics the film’s outlook by oscillating between snatches of 2Pac and modern R&B;” South London-bred, 25-year old siren Arlissa, who recently appeared in the August issue Vogue, experienced her first real taste of success with her breakthrough track “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie.”  Arlissa’s defiant anthem “We Won’t Move” from THE HATE U GIVE soundtrack garnered early buzz at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of T.H.U.G., with Toronto’s NOW exclaiming “the soulful ballad has got ‘Oscar nominee’ written all over it.”

“It’s been a true honor to be involved in something so significant and relevant to today’s social climate,” Arlissa said. “I was one of the millions of people who were deeply touched by the book, so to be able to contribute to the movie, which shines such a strong light on inequality, has been a responsibility I’ve taken with such pride and care. This is not just a film, this is education”

Fiery Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions, who NPR raves “confronts racism with a captivating flow that’s both acrimonious and awe-inspiring,” and whose debut EP channels the anger and despair that accompany the cycle of systemic racism” according to XXL, performs the eponymous title tune, “The Hate U Give.”

Shaping up as one of the fall season’s breakout movies, The Hate U Give stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, a teen who is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.  Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. Amandla’s original song “Always” closes out the soundtrack.

The Hate U Give also stars Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith and Sabrina Carpenter, with Common, and Anthony Mackie. The film was directed by George Tillman Jr. (NotoriousMen Of Honor), and produced by Robert Teitel, George Tillman Jr., Marty Bowen, and Wyck Godfrey.  The Hate U Give, whose screenplay was written by Audrey Wells (A Dog’s PurposeUnder The Tuscan Sun), is a Fox 2000 Pictures, State Street Pictures, and Temple Hill Entertainment production, distributed by 20th Century Fox.
