RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
A stunningly intimate R&B single that oozes soul.
Melbourne, Australia-based artist PANIA is an R&B singer and songwriter who crafts attention-grabbing tunes. By infusing inspiration from her Maori and West Indian heritage into her work, PANIA creates a captivating sound that’s deeply personal. The up-and-coming artist first debuted back in 2020 with the standout song “ICYY,” which was later followed by the equally impressive “ICY PT.2.” Says PANIA, “My music could be heard and translated anywhere in the world, I just happen to be from Australia. My expression has no limits.” Her latest drop is the mesmerizing R&B single “proof” and its accompanying lyric video.
Starting out with a mellow fusion of R&B elements, “proof” sets the tone for a hypnotic and heartfelt reminiscence. According to PANIA, her new single reflects on “re-assuring a lover and making them feel like they’re the only one. I’m pouring my all into them, even though it never feels like it’s enough.” Lyrics like “Tryna hold back these feelings despite the truth/Don’t wanna be lonely so u try and hold me” and “Trust me I’m much lonelier than u” showcase PANIA’s vulnerability with beautifully soulful vocals. You certainly don’t want to miss out on the rising Australian artist’s latest addition, so check out “proof” and lose yourself in PANIA’s enchanting romantic reflection.
