Check Out the Dazzling New Single “Like Dat” by LARA’ featuring Ambré

LARA’ (@singtomelara formerly known as Eimaral Sol) is a singer-songwriter based in Austin, Texas. Not too long ago, she allowed listeners in for an intimate view into her world with a dazzling new single, “Like Dat,” featuring Ambré. The song was produced by BLK ODYSSY and released via EARTHCHILD/EMPIRE.

From its beginning moments, “Like Dat” is all-enveloping; its richly layered instrumental shimmers and bubbles, creating a dreamlike backdrop for LARA’ to relay a narrative of lust-filled romance. Her crisp vocal tone gently cuts through the misty instrumental as she utilizes a conversational, rap-adjacent delivery in the song’s verses and hook, sounding assured and confident when owning her sexuality. New Orleans native Ambré’s delicately sung guest verse furthers feelings of ecstasy as her vocals softly levitate over the jazzy, seductive beat.

Speaking on the song, LARA’ stated: “I wrote this song while I was in the studio with BLK ODYSSY, this was after Pushaman and Addiction and I wanted to give my audience some insight as to why I was so hooked on this person described in those songs. This song represents that heavy physical chemistry you have with someone that has you reminiscing on past encounters — I wanted to find a way to put that feeling into a song. After I recorded my verse, I was like I’d love to hear Ambré on this and I was so excited when that became real because she brought the perfect essence to the track. I’m beyond excited for this song to be out.”

‘Like Dat’ is a highly addictive, visceral new addition to LARA’’s catalog that will stimulate listeners’ appetites for what’s to come for the rest of the year and beyond.

LARA’ is an artist who cites the likes of generational voices including Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, and Ella Fitzgerald as inspirations for her soul-bearing, emotionally captivating work. As a long-term collaborator with the multi-genre fusing BLK ODYSSY, LARA’’s voice can be heard across their catalog, adding a sense of depth and emotional gravitas to the critically acclaimed albums BLK VINTAGE and DIAMONDS & FREAKS.

In 2023 LARA’ joined the band on tour, performing alongside the group and as a support act during their sold-out ‘DIAMONDS & FREAKS TOUR.’ LARA’ enchanted audiences all across the U.S. and Europe, including a spellbinding performance at their sold-out debut in London playing at Hoxton Hall. More recently, she has landed writing credits for North Carolina rap elite, Rapsody, on her fourth studio album, “Please Don’t Cry.”

LARA’ uses her experiences as a mother, partner, and Black woman navigating contemporary life to inform her musical output, offering confessional, stylized, and emotionally complex works. With spirituality playing a huge role in her life and creativity, LARA’ seeks to uplift through her art and spread messages of acceptance of oneself and others.

After spending much of last year writing and featuring on tracks by Rapsody, BLK ODYSSY, and Dende, LARA’ has since been focusing on releasing her own music.
