“Will Your Remember” is the latest single from up-and-coming singer and producer Yona Marie. Paying homage to Henry Purcell's popular Aria “Dido’s Lament” from the Baroque opera “Dido and Aeneas”, Yona puts a modern spin on the deeply distressing tale of Dido’s ultimate undoing. The Carthage queen was abandoned by her lover, Trojan hero Aeneas, and suffered intense emotional turmoil that leads her to the act of committing suicide on a pyre built to burn her faithless lover's possessions. With her rich production, dynamic vocal range, and a special featured showcase of her operatic capabilities, Yona Marie brings a fresh musical arrangement to the lyrical work of Irish poet Nahum Tate, giving this epic historical masterpiece a trap-soul-classical styled remake that may be a completely new sound no one has heard blended together until now. https://yonamariemusic.com/

Smile About It
wow, I find this engagin' sonic tapestry, a strange mixture of rap, and operatic, w a fantastic soprano, accompanied by hand claps, cello, strings, and/or finger-snaps (that works in west side story lol), very creative song, lovely vocal and catchy chorus 'will you remember', also props for bringing greek myth into the conversation, welcome to iac/imp, kudos...

Rich Vocals, very gifted lady tripping transition from classical operatic combo from a laid back smooth sweet groove to a big soundscape that has some edgy aspects and elements, then a haunting operatic voice sweeps , dig that harpsichord effect.

such a creative song, a lovely vocal, the soprano around 1:45 comes out of nowhere, like a Sybil, a Delphic oracle, the tympani drum's great, and the harpsichord and strings, "will you remember" is a great refrain, the source is a greek myth, w breadth and scope, kudos...
