New York-based R&B singer-songwriter Stephn has just released a sultry new single via SoundCloud called “Don’t Wait” (ft. Babby). It follows the recent release of single “More” and once again showcases just how talented Stephn is as a R&B vocalist and songwriter. “Don’t Wait” brings both Stephn and Babby’s soulful vocals to the forefront, backed by a mesmerizing R&B beat that’s sure to resonate with fans of the genre.
Never one to shy away from keeping it real, Stephn wrote the song two years ago while he battled depression. Explaining the sentiment behind the track, he says: “I was trying to take my power and energy back from things that have suppressed me the longest. It was written as a reminder to always allow myself to feel and express everything, because I finally recognized how important my voice was.”
NYC-born, but raised between Nigeria and DC, Stephn is inspired by the music of his roots, as well as the soulful sounds of Frank Ocean, Sampha, and Toro y Moi. Heavily driven by retro aesthetics and his past life as a fashion stylist, Stephn compliments each of his music releases with a set of accompanying visuals to ensure his fans have a true full-sensory experience. Since kicking off his music career in 2018, Stephn has released an ever-growing, well received body of work, as well as securing opening performances for Kari Faux, Mac Ayres, and Ari Lennox.
