(July 27, 2019) We’ve been following talented Japanese singer and songwriter Nao Yoshioka for about five years now, and she is definitely something special. Defying stereotypes about the backstory of a soul singer, her talent thrust her into the spotlight, winning for her plenty of fans on this side of the ocean, as well as multiple SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Award nominations.
Nao is finalizing her upcoming album Undeniable, with an all-star set of producers, and today she gives us a sneak peek with the new single, “Got Me.” The sultry downtempo number, produced by Musicman Ty, sports an ethereal backing that allows Nao to explore the space with her sensual lead vocals.
Nao says that the overall theme of the upcoming album is “to live without fear, keep our ‘eyes on the prize,’ and celebrate life’s triumphs.” We can say that if “Got Me” is any indication of what’s in store, then this album will be yet another winner from a rising star.
We’re proud to present the World Premiere of the cool video for “Got Me.” Check it out below and welcome back Nao Yoshioka to SoulTracks!
