Like a Smooth Operator, Poshy Drops Debut EP, “Mixed Emotions” Packed with Empowerment and Honesty
BROOKLYN - Jamaican-born Poshy entered the music scene with her single “Baddie,” which proved to be a fan favorite within days of dropping. Now, she is gearing up for the release of her debut EP, “Mixed Feelings.”
As a lyrical singer who evokes soul into every note, Poshy ticks the R&B, reggae, and pop genre boxes but does not label her music. Poshy blends songs with a retro and new age sound with a vocal edge like the legendary Sade. Utilizing her heritage and sound, Poshy is a Jamaican Sade.
Her debut single, “Baddie,” and her upcoming EP are an arousing collection of emotions ranging from sexy to whimsical fused with a 70-80s vibe.
“‘Mixed Feelings’ is straightforward, and it’s very close to me because it has to do with one of my worst relationships,” said Poshy. “There’s this feeling of ‘I love you,’ ‘I hate you,’ and yet ‘I love you.’”
The concept EP with five tracks chronicles the vast range of emotions and concludes with the realization that “it’s OK to be torn when you love somebody, but you also need to know when to let do go,” she added.
While the EP focuses on Poshy’s feelings, it is relatable to everyone. “I realized once I listened to a bunch of songs that it also has to do with not just a relationship that I was in but the people around me.”
“Mixed Feelings” kicks off with a “Summer’s End,” a groovy 80s-type vibe that showcases Poshy’s clever wordplay. Much like the end of a season, Poshy lends her vocals to weave the story of wanting to end a relationship when your partner does not. “You realize the relationship is not going anywhere, and you don’t want to waste time. There are four seasons, and I’m trying to tell this guy it should end, and he says, ‘No.’”
“Summer’s End” displays Poshy’s emotions yet empowers her while elevating her to take control of her life through a smooth combination of melodic lyrics.
Shifting to mainstream pop, “Fluttering” is a dance track that invites someone into your life, much like a butterfly landing on your finger. The up-tempo falling in love song highlights the moment you meet your soulmate and let your bodies do the talking.
Poshy has come a long way since her childhood days in Jamacia, where she found her love of music by singing in the church choir and at various community events. However, music was placed on the backburner after migrating to the U.S. to attend college. When a corporate career did not fulfill her, Poshy turned to music, her first love.
In addition to being a rising artist, Poshy is an entrepreneur and philanthropist, operating Vanity Vend, Inc., which supports women in need. During the pandemic, Vanity Vend supplied women across the country with feminine care products and a reason to push forward through COVID-related hardships.
Ensuring her music stays true to her heart and mission to empower and support women throughout the world, Poshy said, “I’m an onion. There are so many layers to me.”
Unlike an onion that makes you cry, Poshy’s music evokes emotions that run the spectrum. Her timeless tracks soothe listeners to live an honest and empowered life.
