ThisIsRnB newcomer Jessica Domingo dropped off her new single “Island” and it’s a perfect way to end summer.
Born and raised in Seattle, the Filipina R&B artist‘s sultry voice is a sweet addition to the genre. Taking the island-infused beat over with lyrics like “Somethin’ about your presence that’s enticing / Somethin’ about your assets, I’m admiring,” the three minute single is as warm and tropical as the name of the song suggests.
When speaking on the motivation behind creating the new single, Domingo said:
“It was my first time visiting the Philippines this year since I was 4 years old and I was very inspired by my culture and travelling around the beautiful islands. It was life-changing for me. During my trip, I finally met up with a producer in Manila that I’ve been emailing back and forth to work with and we created this beat that fit my exact mood. I felt at ultimate peace being on an island and that is exactly how it feels to be in love with someone — a sense of peace and freedom.”
