The alternative R&B song is based on an honest story about a simultaneously pleasurable and painful relationship with a love interest who clearly does not treat her right. Hesitant to leave and knowing the relationship has no future, Liét has found herself developing deep feelings for her sweet talking lover.
“There is no logic to it, but I know a lot of women find themselves in situations like these and I wanted to write a song they can relate to,” she explains.
Liét has been immersed in music from a young age, growing up she was introduced to an array of genres and artists (Whitney Houston, Brandy, Destiny’s Child etc.), some of whom she cites as an inspiration; not just to her sound, but her overall love for the art.
She has made her rounds behind the scenes as a go-to songwriter and has lent her vocals on records for the likes of Hardy Caprio, One Acen, Geko, Kojo Funds and Stefflon Don to name a few. In addition, Liét has served as a live backing vocalist for a number of artists and shows, including The Voice, X Factor and for chart-topping boy band JLS on their UK arena tour.
Now emerging as an exciting new artist with her fresh and diverse sound, Liét sets the tone of what listeners can expect from her this year with ‘Bittersweet’.
