Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Antonique Smith returns with the soaring new single “Higher,” off her anticipated debut EP Love Is Everything, due this fall.
On the anthemic production by Midi Mafia, Darulah and The Track Burnaz, Antonique showcases a sonic progression from her debut single “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo),” which landed her a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance earlier this year. Smith’s strong vocals are center stage as she effortlessly navigates through elevated riffs and poignant lyrics to deliver the emotional message.
“Higher is about that moment when guys are afraid to commit,” says Smith. “When that happens, women start asking all the wrong questions. But, there is something you can say to a man to make him look at you differently and want that commitment. That something is the message of Higher.”
