Viral Spotify singer-songwriter Kurei has released a new single called ‘Eto Na Naman’.
Her latest release revolves around toxic relationships: the feeling of getting hurt, feeling okay for a time, and the unending cycle that people can experience while in them. Produced by Gracenote frontwoman Eunice Jorge and co-written with Kurei’s Business Manager Darwin Hernandez, the track provides a soulful vibe with lyrics that are hard not to relate to.
Kharren Granada obtained her stage name Kurei inspired by a character of the same name from the anime series Flame of Rekka. A Davao native, Kurei first transferred to Manila to pursue a career in photography. This eventually allowed her to be discovered as a singer-songwriter by Soupstar Entertainment and Jorge who also acts as her producer.
As a testament to this promising talent in the industry, Kurei’s debut single “Paasa” reached #1 on the Spotify Philippines Viral 50 chart for one week, and now has over 1,360,000+ streams on the platform. Musical influences such as Raveena, Daniel Caesar, and H.E.R. have brought her to performing chill songs with a touch of R&B and soul.
The future looks bright for Kurei, and “Eto Na Naman” is just the beginning for greater things to come now that she’s found the spotlight.
