Sweeping love ballads have been a pop radio mainstay for, well, as long as I can remember, and Marina Chello, the first signee to Bad Boy President Harve Pierre’s Crazy Joint label imprint, is hoping to parlay that time-tested formula into a debut single (and first Booth feature) that will kick her musical career off with a bang. Tired of waiting on the Sideline, Chello shows off her pipes as she pours her heart out to a man who seems to no longer share her passion. While the record as a whole is nothing we haven’t heard before, the NYC native’s own breathless backing vocals, as well as an inspired bridge make for a catchy, hummable tune, and producers Nasri Atweh and Adam Messinger‘s brassy synths give the instrumental a gently unconventional feel. Chello’s debut LP, What’s Done Is Done, is currently set to drop June 2nd; here’s hoping this single gives her the momentum she needs to step out from the Sideline and into the limelight.
