R&B’s SWEETHEART BRI MARIE BRINGS THE HEARTBREAK WITH NEW SONG & VIDEO “SLEEPLESS” ft. BALLAD
Graceful R&B singer/songwriter Bri Marie has joined forces with captivating vocalist, Ballad to deliver a passionate duet for the ages. Their dreamy, melodic tune, “Sleepless” was unveiled earlier today along with an official music video to match. The intense lyrics coincide perfectly with the heart-wrenching visual as it captures the mental dilemma one goes through when torn between what the heart desires vs. what the heart needs.
Ballad kicks off the song with apologetic lyrics “I ain’t perfect baby, yeah I made mistakes, I know I hurt you baby – won’t do that shit again.” followed by a smooth falsetto into the chorus that’s reminiscent of Maxwell’s intro to his classic single “This Woman’s Work.” From there the song shifts gears as Bri pours her heart out exhibiting not only her strength in vocals, but her clever lyrical wordplay, as she takes the lead for the remainder of the song.

Near the end of 2016, Bri Marie blessed fans with the unveiling of her anticipated debut EP “Beginnings”, which amassed over 70k views on Stereoheart’s YouTube channel within the first month of release. The raw, yet sensual EP co-written by Bri herself provided listeners with the perfect combination of hip-hop and neo-soul, taking admirers on a dreamy journey of love that would have Sade in tears.
Hailing from Hershey, Pennsylvania the 23 year-old songstress has worked tirelessly to claim her throne in the R&B game with back to back performances throughout the tristate area, including her opening act for Reggae sensation Serani. With the stage presence of a goddess and innate ability to tug at the heartstrings of her listeners, it’s no wonder why Bri Marie was featured on the #1 source for R&B on ThisIsRnB.com. Between her committed work ethic and expertise in lyrically conveying the right amount of vulnerability and poise throughout every track, it’s safe to say Bri is officially R&B’s newest dream girl.
