“I’m feeling deserted, deserted, you seep through my surface, you’re perfectly imperfect…”
– quote from “Deserted”
Jamaican singer Stalk Ashley stepped into limelight last summer when Stormzy had her feature in Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” cover for Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1. Shortly afterward, the young artist released her debut single “Young”. The release was a major shocker in 2019. The song trended famously on various platforms, received countless streaming, and got endorsements by BBC Radio 1, Capital Xtra, and 1 Xtra.
Barely 5 months after Stalk released “Young”, it hit more than 2 million streams. And currently, her YouTube Channel entertains over 200k views for her Bona Carter acoustic session. She is truly talented. Her vocal capacity is limitless and she’s got this unique way of making every sound worth listening to.
Stalk decided to give the world a pleasant break from the effect of the current pandemic by releasing two singles on the 10th of May, 2020. One is titled “Deserted” and the other “Open”. Both songs are crystal clear representation of her vocal and visual authority in the music industry.
In “Deserted”, she features Western, a British rap group of 3. The song is a flawless blend of dancehall and R&B, and has garnered up to a million listeners worldwide in the first week of its release. The massive contribution of Western to the song sure does make it unique and captivating. Nevertheless, Stalk’s performance in the song is simply an expression of her unstoppable emergence as a prominent, invincible figure in the music industry. Ya’ll had better watched out for her!
Check out the video of “Deserted” where she had to deal with a boyfriend who’s pretty confused between what he claims he wants, and what he find himself doing.
