Multi-talented Guelph, Ontario-based beatmaker and producer Sona Elango, better known as Elaquent, delivers his first single for 2022 titled "Fairy Tales." The song is a collaborative effort between him and emerging vocalist Mileena and the result is a warm love ballad that blends lofi with future R&B vibes. From the moment you hit the play button, Elaquent's soothing soundscape hit the soul, from the dreamy piano riffs, somber layered textures, and soft drum arrangements that weave into one another. Mileena delivers a soul-stirring performance with airy melodic runs and heartfelt love-laden lyrics that dwell on the joys of true love between her and her partner.
"Fairy Tales" is the lead single from Elaquent's forthcoming self-produced sixteen-track LP, Long Drives to Nowhere, on June 17, 2022, via URBNET. The project as Elaquent explains is about self-growth and finding the strength to push on regardless of the external forces working against you. He adds that the project will be more mellow and will fully represent his integrity as an artist who is always growing.
