Starlet Says Song Is About Her Musical Journey
Chanteuse CymcoLé takes on trap/pop in her new single, “Shadows.”
The pretty singer, 19, shows off her range on her new song, and said it’s about her musical journey from a child star to an artist in her own right.
“It’s like an R&B trap pop song,” Cymcole said of her new single. “It’s a lot of fun and it shows who I am as an artist.”
Originally from Cincinnati, CymcoLé – who was born Cymber Nicole Larkin – is the daughter of former Cincinnati Reds player Barry Larkin, and spent four years singing and performing in Brazil while she was still a kid before moving back to the U.S. to launch her career. Citing influences like Michael and Janet Jackson, Aaliyah and Rihanna, CymcoLé said she wants her music to inspire people, especially other young women.
“We wanted to show women you can do whatever you want to do,” she said.
CymcoLé’s EP is set to drop later this year, and she said she’s got songs in the works with Rich Homie Quan, rapper Nick Grant, and producer Bangladesh. But in the meantime, the singer has been doing shows around New York City, something she said her father is thrilled about.
“My dad is very supportive,” she said. “My dad is literally a stage dad. He loves that fact that he can support his daughter.”
