Shaolinn is an artist coming out of Virginia Beach who’s been rightfully turning heads as of late in the up-and-coming r&b world. While only 21 years old, Shaolinn’s talents defy her youth as she’s been impressing us with her blissful tunes dating back to mid-2021 when I first caught wind of her single “Heavy Heart”. With a steady flow of releases since the unveiling of her debut EP, “Blackstone”, last year, Shaolinn has continued her momentum throughout 2022 with memorable singles such as “Time Flies”, “Free Range”, and now “Cherish”. A deeply introspective artist, Shao’s jazz and pop-infused r&b makes for the perfect kickback music to clear your thoughts to and alleviate all of your stresses. If you’re looking to discover something new today, there’s no better time than now to get hip to the incredibly gifted, Shaolinn, so do yourself a favor and tap in.
Released on December 9th, Shaolinn’s new single, “Cherish”, is the subsequent single to her fastest growing record to date and I have to say – this new one is very special, folks. Fresh off her first international performance in the U.K., Shaolinn capped off the end of a very successful 2022 run by leaving us with a cover of a classic, quiet storm r&b cut. Paying homage to the legendary artist, Sade, Shao takes her listeners on a nostalgic journey over soulful, edgy production – offering her own twist to the song while managing to maintain the integrity of the original record. Highlighting her signature warm voice and robust creative expression, “Cherish” is a one of one record that captures so much that we’ve come to know and love from Shao over the last year and some change.
