Most recently, Taija New has released her new single, “Couture“, produced by NY Bangers on which she displays a fine balance between smooth melodies and hard-hitting bars. About the track, she says, “Being a 90s baby, “Couture” was the song that I always wanted to write and record. As soon as I heard the beat that was produced by NY Bangers, I could not stop my pen from writing; I knew exactly where I was going with the feel for this one. The entire song is about the feeling and vibe it gives you all while bringing across an important message, “I don’t compete to you better not sleep, or you might lose me!” I wanted the ladies to feel the power in their worth!“”
With COVID putting a halt to her scheduled live performances, Taija has been putting her energy into the studio, where she has been steadily racking up tunes to continue her push into 2021. A fearless female MC with a message to be heard, Taija is dead set on making some major waves. Tune in.
