Los Angeles-based pop icon, iLana Armida, gives a refreshing new rendition of a love story as old as time on her upcoming hit single, “Summertime Love.” Having written music for several popular artists, including Doja Cat, Etana, and Common Kings, and performing alongside Lil’ Dicky and John K, iLana Armida definitely has the experience and know-how to create the next big pop track, which she undoubtedly will do with her upcoming single of many to come.
Opening with a slow build that grows into a smooth, wavy sound that really sets the tone for the rest of this summer vibed song. The vocal melody perfectly complements the airy synths and thumping bass sounds to create a sound that instantly makes you feel as if you’re driving in a convertible on a warm summer day or relaxing on the sandy beaches of California. Listeners are enveloped in the easy going but passionate nature that has come to define the character that Armida’s fans have come to know and love.
Summertime Love showcases the dedication to craft that has seen iLana wrack up over 7.6m Spotify streams on song writes, while sonically riffing on her trademark optimistic and joyful vibe. Herself of mixed heritage, she remains ‘ethnically ambiguous’ and draws on global influences resulting in music that transcends restrictions to any one location, promoting a spirit of inclusivity in all that she does. iLana Armida creates art that invites all to be welcome, feel accepted, and have a little fun.
I sing songs that incorporate multiple languages and genres purposefully so that people of all cultures and backgrounds and ethnicities can feel connected to the music…I want everyone to feel accepted and united.
