PREMIERE: GHITA and Mickey Valen Release New Single "How Low"
GHITA and Mickey Valen have teamed up to release a stunning new single, "How Low" today with The Prelude Press!
"It's a pretty cold world out there, and sometimes it seems like everyone is just out to take from each other. I moved to LA and this is my way of writing down my experiences within this city: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the passion for great art."
Where GHITA's vocal prowess shines in this indie-pop and R&B influenced track, Mickey Valen's production compliments her and then some. The duo work as an incredible team to bring the track to life, GHITA posing the question, "How bad do you want to be cool? How low will you go?" while Mickey shines when the drop comes in. Listen to the song now below!
GHITA was born in Morocco in 1994 to a Spanish-Moroccan mother and a Moroccan father. She grew up between Spain, Morocco and Switzerland, where she was exposed to contrasting worlds. Following high-school, Ghita moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, where she spent three years studying songwriting and performance. Her first show as “Ghita” was June 2015, serving as the opening act for Maroon 5 during the Mawazine Festival in Morocco. Ghita’s musical influences include pop icons like Lorde, Lana del Rey, the Weekend and rappers like DRAKE, KANYE, J COLE. She describes her style as pop/Rnb rooted in the catchiness of her choruses, all the while adapting an r’n’b feel to her verses and beats. Ghita also enjoys representing her Moroccan heritage through the use of percussions and exotic samples.
