Ari B is Boston's new breakout artist with seemingly no limit to her range of talent. Singing is just the tip of the iceberg, as Ari B is proficient in dancing, acting, and songwriting as well.
Her new single, “Hideaway,” is available on iTunes, Amazon and most major online music streaming sites. The new single follows the 18-year old pop singer’s previous single and music video, “By the Pool,” released in August, 2016.
Ari was just nominated for Best Pop Artist of the Year and Best Video for The New England Music Awards!
“Hideaway,” written by Ari B and produced by Ric Poulin of Bristol Entertainment, is an upbeat/funk tune centered around a cool jam with many elements of modern day R&B as well as a funk feel and stylistic wording that will bring you back to an older time. The song focuses on someone who is indecisive whether to stay or leave the situation, or relationship, they are currently in. Throughout the song, the pros and cons are presented on both sides to help make up the singer’s mind.
“Everyone can relate to being stuck in something that might not be good for them, sometimes trying to justify it based on personal goals or outside forces. I came up with the concept mainly due to wanting to produce something current with a yearning overtone that still had a throwback feel.” The Pop and R&B artist further describes how “The message of this song is to take notice of how the mind tends to search through many, sometimes arbitrary possibilities which can hinder one from coming to a rational decision.” Some of Ari B’s influences include MJ, Bruno Mars, P!nk, and Hayley Williams; the elements of her music video demonstrate a cross between these influences and Ari’s own unique jazzed-up, hip hop style.
Ari plans to continue writing, producing, and will hopefully add another video to her rapidly growing repertoire. She aims to return to live performances very soon. And if that’s not enough she is a highly trained and serious dancer with a passion for the stage as well as acting on camera.
“Having watched a few videos on Ari’s YouTube page it’s clear to see that she has another passion. Other than being a superb singer/ songwriter she’s also an extraordinary dancer. Ari could actually be a backing dancer but I’m glad she’s at the forefront because the tunes out there are simply sensational.”
