UK born singer songwriter Rheo, is poised to announce a brand new song ‘Señorita’ due for release this October.
Following on from the success of her recent singles, ‘Show Me’ and ‘Wife Me’ (feat rapper Chxmpion) which were very well supported by BBC Music Introducing East Midlands and BBC Radio Leicester; described as “phenomenal, pop at its very, very finest”.
‘Señorita’ marks a shift in tempo for the rising pop star, showcasing elements of Rheo’s emotive, soulful side; fusing hazy pop leaning tendencies over intimate, unfiltered lyricism. The end product marks her as an artist to watch out for.
She says: “I wanted to channel as much sexual tension as I could into a song; you know in the films when they’re in a club, dancing, sweaty and ridiculously sensual? I wanted Senorita to be the soundtrack for something like that.”
She goes on: “To me, as soon as you hear a Latino beat, it puts you in that sultry, sensuous mood; so thats how we ended up with that vibe, and hey, Tequila is my fave shot so it was a no brainier to drop in the mix”.
Rheo is no stranger to the music scene having been a featured vocalist on many dance/pop anthems, she has now stepped up to release her own evocative and commercially focused music. Her song writing and top line skills blend sublimely with her ability to create catchy melodies, which all combine to deliver a story, influenced by relatable issues such as female empowerment, relationships, gender and equality
Rheo tell us: “I started relatively late to song writing at about 17, I just didn’t think I could do it, it was something other people could do, not me. So what I put out was heavily influenced by the people I was working with, and consequently I didn’t relate to it and therefore why should anyone else? But now, working with Charles (Drew) from Monarchy Music, we have just clicked creatively, and the material is coming thick and fast. I’m loving what I’m producing, it feels connected to me, my thoughts, friendships, relationships and I’m proud of how it sounds. I’m listening to myself on repeat, which is an absolute first for me.”
Working together with her new production team has helped Rheo develop her distinctive sound, which has been influenced by the likes of Dua Lipa, Becky Hill, Raye and Jessie Ware to name a few.
‘Señorita’ is part of a clutch of singles scheduled for release over the coming months, offering listeners a taste of what Rheo Uno has to offer.
