After accumulating over 100k streams with his recent hit, “Regular Day”. New York-based entertainer Ashoka returns with a big 2020 on the way starting with the new love song, “40/60”. Featuring the promising R&B singer Jay Wile, the two collaborators praise the love they have for their women with a creative melody about doing anything for their women.
On the new song, Ashoka says, “This particular record is about a man’s willingness to go the extra mile for his woman. Not just telling her she’s worth it but actually taking the time to show her. Don’t get me wrong, relationships aren’t supposed to be one-sided, but have you ever been so into a shawty that it’s like she doesn’t even have to do much? That’s the headspace I was in when I created this one.”
Produced by the talented Jahmal Gittens, Ashoka and Wile display tremendous chemistry on the new song that promises much more music to come in the near future. Ashoka is a musical hybrid who promised to reach the top of the charts with his undeniable energy and creativity. “40/60” is available now via KDM Collective/EMPIRE.

The new song is a soulful ballad about building a deep connection between two people. Describing the early days of a relationship and the lasting effect it leaves on a person that will be apart of them forever. Amour’s new single is the follow=up to standout hits, “Temporary” and “Russian Doll”.
On the making of “Thinking Bout You,” Amour explains, “‘Thinking Bout You’ is a song that encompasses emotions from the beginning of a relationship diving deep into what emotions are left in the end and after the relationship is fully over. It really is a song that was inspired through the transitions of emotions through a failed relationship. It was kind of cool writing it because I started writing it thinking it was going to go somewhere else. When I came back to it, I felt differently in comparison to how I felt originally.”
“Thinking Bout You” is a lead up to Amour’s forthcoming four-track EP, titled, My Favorite Summer. Out on Amourxmusic, the upcoming project explores themes of love, heartbreak, lust & sorrow. For more on Charlene Amour, follow the rising star on Twitter and Instagram.

Ultimately, whenever I am creating a song, I will always remember how I felt when I wrote it, why I wrote it & who played a part in that creation.”
