Pop-R&B songstress Charlene Su has released her debut EP titled onlyfriends, with four songs that promise to be absolute bops.
Aside from subtly and cheekily referencing the popular, albeit raunchy online platform, OnlyFans, onlyfriends came about through collaboration among friends. Looking through the writers, you can see why. “To me, collaboration is the best part about music,” says Charlene, as she likes to think of songwriting as self-expression through shared human experience.
“We have all felt disappointment and the ache of heartbreak before, be it unrequited feelings for a crush or even within friendships. I think of this EP as my coping mechanism of sorts for that disappointment; it’s really just me whining and trying to get over my feelings in a very melodic, pop way.”
Charlene Su’s onlyfriends EP also includes the R&B jam “bitter baby,” whose laid-back beats and tropical-sounding production drip with sensual confidence, and the earlier released tracks “iwas4u” and “ilikered.”The music video for “say it back” will be released on 25th August 2021 together with a live- streamed performance of the EP. The new song off Su’s new EP, features Universal Music Singapore’s up-and-coming singer-songwriter and producer YAØ.
