Described as a “space age songstress”, Atlanta, Georgia’s Tanerélle creates smooth and inviting R&B that transports the listener to another planet, attracting over 440k monthly listeners on Spotify and 315k followers on Instagram, with millions of streams over her entire discography.

Tanerélle was a pioneer of the virtual concert, with her intergalactic performance hitting the internet in April 2020. ‘Mama Saturn’s Virtual Concert’ has since amassed 5.4m views on YouTube alone, while the live version of ‘Boys Like You’ has brought in close to half a million views on the platform.

On the streaming side, Tanerélle’s latest single ‘Good News’ was added to Spotify’s Low Key and Fresh Finds: The Wave playlists upon release, while she was already a favourite of chill playlists, with tracks featuring in 4AM Chillout and Soft Office. The other-worldly singer also lent her vocals to producer Machinedrum’s 2020 track ‘Star’, with the A$AP Ferg remix recently crossing 2 million streams.

In addition to co-signs from Ferg and Shygirl - who featured ‘Star’ in a playlist she curated for Spotify - Tanerélle’s music has featured in HBO’s Insecure and Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It and Raising Dion. Following its appearance on Insecure, Tanerélle’s track ‘Nothing Without You’ became Tunefind’s Top TV Song of the week, and remains one of the artist’s most popular on Spotify.
