Jeilani Explores a Distant Love in the latest single “Secret Admirer”


R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Jeilani is taking the music world by storm with the latest single, “Secret Admirer.” This track explores admiring and loving someone from a distance through a loving, guitar-driven, affectionate, and emotional melody.

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Jeilani is a rising star in the R&B scene. Their sound is inspired by The Weeknd, Usher, and Ginuwine. They navigate their music by combining smooth melodies, sensual lyrics, and powerful vocals to create a unique, nostalgic, modern sound.

Despite being relatively lowkey in the industry, Jeilani’s late November single “Flatline” was added to Spotify’s Fresh Finds R&B playlist in 2021, which helped the song reach over 11k streams this year. Jeilani’s star has been on the rise ever since, with three more successful singles, “Option(s),” “Been A Minute,” and “Lay U Down,” being featured in several independent curators’ playlists and reaching impressive milestones within weeks of release.

Jeilani is preparing to release their second project this year, sure to be just as successful as their previous work. Their sound is a blend of smooth R&B melodies and modern production techniques, which makes their music both nostalgic and forward-looking. Their unique blend of sensual lyrics and powerful vocals has won them many fans. Their star is set to rise even higher as they produce high-quality music that resonates with listeners.
