Emotional Oranges first hopped onto the R&B scene in 2019, and how they’re so astounding remains a mystery ‘til this day. Ahead of their highly anticipated project, JUICEBOX, this charming duo is teasing us with a tasty collaboration with Chiiild, a boundary-breaking newcomer in the world of soul. If you’re on the market for quality music, let Emotional Oranges and Chiiild take you away with their fantastic new single, “Bonafide.”
On “Bonafide,” Emotional Oranges reflected,
“We were listening to a lot of Sade and The xx at the time. I wanted to make something that felt like it could score that iconic ‘Black Swan’ mirror scene. Once we got locked in, Max from slenderbodies helped bring the idea to life in a couple hours. Getting the Chiiild vocals on the hook was the cherry on top – we’ve been looking for the right song to do together since tour.”
For those who don’t know, the dictionary defines ‘bonafide’ as genuine or real, which is exactly what you get when Emotional Oranges and Chiiild join forces. If the irresistible bass lines don’t already have you hooked on “Bonafide,” the sultry vocals will surely have you swooning in no time. More than anything, “Bonafide” gets us even more pumped for what’s to come in Emotional Oranges’ JUICEBOX.
“’Bonafide,’ like the title, is about a genuine unwavering love. Withstanding the good times and strengthening during the bad.”
