Liana Banks, a 25 year-old singer and songwriter from Queens, New York, garners attention for her effort on her debut single "LVLUP." The song is aptly featured on ITR's "Run and Tell" playlist and also reached number 10 on Spotify's United Kingdom Viral Chart.
Since riding her wave of success, Liana keeps her momentum following up her debut with a track taken from her forthcoming Insubordinate mixtape. The new single, titled "M.O.N." (Money Over N*ggas), is sage advice made more appreciable by its R&B and soul tones.
"People will hurt you. Commas won't. Date commas," Liana says.
The interesting fact is this statement would very rarely come from a male. Sometimes males have no regard for females' emotions and have doggish behavior towards the women they interact with. Sometimes males' pursuit to money is just as much of a vice as is the p*ssy. True or untrue, these statements come from the mind of a male, so I hear the songstress on focusing her attention on stacking paper and finding love later. "Find someone who can add to your money so instead of your own personal stack, y'all can have stacks on stacks together," my girlfriend hopes for Liana. Companionship over everything.
Either way, listen to "M.O.N." below and stay tuned for Liana's mixtape release date.
