Po’ up, light up! Emerging indie artist Star Martin sets the mood to turn up with her brand new single “PRE GAME.”
The R&B singer-songwriter was born into and raised by a family of musicians, who groomed her diva potential through her preteen years. Unlike the cliché story of having a voice developed in a small town Baptist Church, Star’s vocal expertise was cultivated by years of studio experience. With Beyoncé as her inspiration and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC as her mentor/God Mother, Star based her approach on authenticity, heritage, and real experiences.
Taking a fun, carefree approach to her new single, Star collaborated with Grammy award-winning producer Jo “CAPO” Kent and Rill Noize on the high-spirited record. Star’s intention of crafting a ladies anthem, for as the title says “pre-gaming,” is masterfully evident and illuminated by her sultry tone.
“Bet I got these n**gas slippin, keep ’em swinging at my curves / Patrón in my system, playing Scrabble with my words,” she sings. “It’s the pregame (pregame), for the weekend (weekend) / It’s a movie at the house / F**kin’ up the couch / Bottles goin ’round.”
Star is currently in the studio working on her upcoming EP release. Take a listen to “PRE GAME” below:
