‘MIRROR’, as featured in Sounds So Beautiful, is the glorious new offering from multi-faceted Atlanta-based singer, songwriter, and vocal producer ARYEÈ THE GEM as she continues to tease towards her highly anticipated debut solo EP arriving later this year via independent label Saint & Citizen Music. To be released on August 4, ‘Mirror’ comes on the back of the success of Aryeè The Gem’s last single ‘To It’, which has nearly amassed one million plays online, and garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Earmilk, Apple Music, ThisIsRnB, Notion Magazine, SoulTracks, and Metal Magazine, among others.
Written by Aryeè The Gem, with production coming from her longtime collaborators Trakmatik (Snoh Aalegra, Keyshia Cole, August Alsina) and Hvstle, ‘Mirror’ sees Aryeè waxing lyrical about getting out of your own way enough to trust yourself and others, and being open to reciprocity and new beginnings. The poignant and emotive track is driven by infectious drum patterns, synth keys, and lush bass guitar arrangements, over which Aryeè shines bright with her beautiful vocal display, rich harmonies and melodies, and captivating songwriting about growth, resilience, and freedom.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Mirror’, Aryeè says, “This song was inspired by the process of growth and development, it reflects my growth, resilience, and newfound freedom. With this song, I honed in on knowing myself and trusting in the path that I’m taking. As I’m moving forward, I’m releasing a lot of things that no longer serve me, and calling in a reflection of love through another person. My intention for this song is to amplify the energy of new beginnings in love and life, while trusting that everything that is unfolding is for my highest good”.
