Meet Banks: the artist who knows how to turn heartbreak into magic.
Let’s be honest, break ups are never pretty. In fact, they’re quite tragic. The music industry is a common foundation for turning heartbreaks into a set of lyrical masterpieces, and Banks just happens to fall into that category.
Since her rise to stardom after debuting her EP entitled, ‘London’ in 2013, the singer, formally known as Jillian Rose Banks, has constantly had heads turning in recognition for her unique artistry and twists on contemporary R&B. If the sound of that wasn’t enough to entice you, you’ll be pleased to know that she toured with The Weeknd back in 2013 and she’s set to tour with him again next week on his Beauty Behind the Madness Tour. Talk about rubbing it in.
In preparation for the tour, the lady herself released her new video for her single, ‘Better’ which features a gold-speckled Banks featuring a highly versatile body. If you haven’t guessed already, her visuals are very abstract. The more the merrier, we say. It’s been over a year since the songstress released her studio album, ‘Goddess’ but tells fans that she’ll release an album “early, early next year.” We’ll hold you to that one, Banks.
If dark R&B is right up your street, Banks is your girl. Take it from us.
