Singer and songwriter, Holly Rey comes back with a highly anticipated 2nd EP titled Unconditional.
She returns to the music scene after a much needed hiatus with the much-anticipated release of her second EP, Unconditional out on the 30 July 2021. Proving again just why she is a multi-platinum selling and multi award-winning artist.
She dropped the first single titled “Spend My Time” featuring Mr Luu and MSK on the 26 March. It casts Holly in the role of Deephouse Soul Diva. The track weaves in elements of Amapiano, South Africa’s biggest sound right now. The new EP lives up to the expectations of her ROTY Award winning single Deeper and also features production from Murphy Cubic from Zimbabwe who produced “You”, the multi-platinum selling single, off of her first EP.
“Recording this EP was a very personal journey for me. It was a huge part of my healing process and I think that ultimately it will be a big part of my growth and evolution as an artist.” Holly Rey says.
At a time of global uncertainty, Holly’s songwriting ability comes strongly to the fore. The five-track EP speaks eloquently and sensitively of connecting on different levels. This especially comes through on the most surprising track on the EP, “Heaven”, produced by long-standing friend and touring DJ, Sphamandla Hlengwa.
Between tales of exploring the many shades of love, the album ,Unconditional is a confident expression of an artist fully coming into her own. Out of the struggles of finding and losing love to the realisation of self-love and a deeper understanding of unconditional love, comes a stunning Afro Tech track “Another Existence” featuring DJ Mshega. It soars with emotion and sophisticated production.
“Holly Rey is an artist who captures the imagination and hearts of South Africans. Her unique soulful voice has the ability to universally draw in listeners and connect with her very real-world lyrics and stories. As a contemporary artist that welcomes all the nuances of SA culture into her sound, she displays an innovative spirit well beyond her years. Together with the generosity of her gift, Holly is the kind of artist we need today and more importantly tomorrow,” says Nicole Smith, Marketing Manager Smirnoff RTDs.
Unconditional comes at just the right time and is a beautiful showcase of Holly Rey’s artistry.
The Pre-Order Link will go live on Apple Music on the 2nd of July. Fans who pre-order the album will receive something to keep them happy while they wait for the big day because the IG track “Something Beautiful” will be exclusively available with the Pre-Order.
