18 FEBRUARY 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Emerging as a global force of nature, 21-year-old Toronto-born singer and songwriter Ebhoni releases her debut mini project/EP “X” out today. The 4-track project includes Ebhoni’s breakout singles “MIA” & “Hit This” in addition to a newly released track titled “All To Myself” and the Caribbean infused R&B bop “X-Ting.”
Praised by Fader as being “exactly the kind of energy we should all be striving to keep during Mercury retrograde” Ebhoni’s mini project is accompanied by a stunning visual for her infectious island infused bop-worthy single “X-Ting.” On X-Ting, Ebhoni delivers a lusty ode to an ex with charisma, confidence and of course bad gyal vibes.
Directed by BBY Chris, the music video for “X-Ting” showcases Ebhoni in her natural bad bitch element as she and her girls turn up in the hair salon reaffirming to her ex and her audience that the glow up is indeed real. The colorful visual mirrors the track’s vibrancy as she sings directly to the viewer flanked by old school phones. Watch it HERE.
X - Track List:
- All To Myself
- Hit This
Ebhoni’s string of animated, confident dancehall influenced R&B singles have won her critical success and a rapidly growing international audience. Ebhoni’s strong war for production sounds has led to her pairing with IzyBeats (Rihanna, Koffee), DJDS (Kanye West, Burna Boy), Doc McKinney (The Weeknd) and others who help synthesize Ebhoni’s broad range of influences into honest, authentic and immediate songs. In the middle of a productive 2019 run, Pitchfork wrote that she is “reclaiming the Toronto R&B crown for women.” Throughout her career, Ebhoni’s made a point to partner specifically with Black-owned businesses, support other women artists and workers, and to uplift the local LGBTQ+ community, which she’s done through efforts like hosting Pride Toronto. Ebhoni is a must-follow.
