NYC artist Blu DeTiger gives us sweet and citric electropop titled “Tangerine” where she chants about pursuing your own passion and the hustling that comes with it. Through her high-sky vocals and blazing boldness, “Tangerine” is a bass-powered track that hits you like a caffeine pill. Wrapped in stomp-and-clap beats, it radiates the glittery charm of disco that we could use for motivational boost. Enjoy:

On her new single, the gal explained: “This song is special to me because it’s a dreamland version of my influences. It’s a strong bass-driven groove with unique parts coming in and out. There’s a vulnerability in admitting what you want. ​​​​The song is about going beyond that initial step and creating the environment you want. ‘The crown look good on me, fresh like tangerine, I wanna write my name on your walls’ — It’s flirty, cheeky, empowering, badass, and the groove just glides.​​​​​​​”

Produced by The Knocks’ Benjamin Ruttner, “Tangerine” is out now via Grammy-nominated independent label HeavyRoc Music. Blu will be performing in Brooklyn at the end of the month, so go say hi:
