Welcome to the latest new artist spotlight! Given the success of the first post in this series, which featured Miami’s Monique Abbadie (potential interview in the works), I return today with Rani Ramahi, a passionate singer from the Twin Cities whose style is a mix of R&B/Soul and Pop/Dance. Rani was born in Brazil and relocated to the United States at the age of 12, around which time he developed an avid interest in singing and acting. With a wide arsenal of languages at his disposal – Portuguese, Spanish, English, and Arabic – I believe this artist has a tremendous crossover potential, in addition to possessing the high level of talent necessary to attract a loyal fanbase. The music video for his first single, “Danza Conmigo,” will be dropping very soon and the song’s catchy hook can be heard at the end of this promo video:
I wish I could share “Danza Conmigo” with you today because the music is magnificent and the video production is breathtaking…it will be well worth the wait! Having grown up in the Twin Cities myself, it is extra meaningful to see a video that features one of our local nightclubs, our DJs, and beautiful women from our own city. I guarantee that this website will be one of the very first to introduce the video when it drops, so be sure to check in over these next few weeks!
While we wait for the video, here are two free downloads that showcase Rani’s vocals for both club music and urban R&B. “I Belong To You” features Rani’s soaring vocals over a backdrop of guitar strums, dreamy synth pads, and lightly rolling Latin drums. In total contrast, “The End” is a pulsing club track that vibrantly dances with its tale of love. Whatever the style, I expect to hear only the best from Rani, which begins with the release of “Danza Conmigo” in the near future!
Update: The video and a limited-time MP3 download have released – click here to watch!!
