From The Artist : Women are often told to hide their sexuality and confidence. I’m learning to allow myself to let go and be the grown woman that I am. This new song is a landmark in my life, as I accept that it’s not wrong to feel sexy, and be flirty.
“Heaven&Safety” was inspired by pure, raw, unconditional love. When I sat down to write, everything flowed out of me so naturally – I let myself live in the space and time that my producer, Jacob Spitzer, was creating within the music.
We, as women, do not need to hide ourselves anymore. We are free to exist however we please. I am a woman, so I will only speak to my own experience. But, as a takeaway, I want EVERYONE – women, men, gender non-conforming, anyone living within or outside of the binary – to feel deserving of love in all of its forms. To feel accepted, and comfortable, finding their own “Heaven&Safety.”
Born and raised in a small town just east of Toronto, Angélique has always been one to challenge the norm and exceed expectations. She’s no rookie to the performance world, coming from an arts highschool. Now, in her early 20s, Angélique has embarked on a solo singing career releasing her debut single in 2018. Her writing style shares the same mysterious cadence heard in early sounds of SZA and Jorja Smith. Angélique has a passion for the shared human experience, and bares her soul on every track in hopes of offering support to others who may be experiencing something similar.
“Heaven&Safety” is her new soulful, mysterious R&B track highlighting her emotionally raw lyrics and powerful vocals. Angélique is another new Toronto artists to watch out for!
