Kolette Easy calls out a Playa in her assertive new video — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
The latest single from the soul powerhouse’s Believe album, Playa takes aim at men who cunningly display multiple layers of slick deception, unfaithfulness and manipulation — all under the guise of love and devotion. The inevitable outcome? You will get caught. Perhaps by the hard-hitting Easy and her baseball bat.
That boldness is nothing new for Easy. Inspired by such musical greats as Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Rachelle Ferrell, Easy’s talents and drive have taken her around the globe, allowing her to transcend musical, cultural and linguistic barriers with her art.
Trained at the Etobicoke School of Arts and the Royal Conservatory of Music, Easy took a leap of blind faith on the advice of a mentor and left her day job to pursue a career singing full-time. For the next several years she became a highly sought-after performer throughout Southeast Asia.
Venturing out of her comfort zone to fulfil her passion has been one of her greatest musical achievements, reflected in her 2018 album Believe. Recorded with producer Eddie Bullen, the disc has spawned a series of successful singles, all displaying her musical versatility.
But Easy’s greatest desire is to touch and connect with her audience through her art. “Ask me where my happy place is,” she says, “I’ll tell you it’s anywhere on that stage.”
