HARLEM, NYC - USA
Switching it up, messing it up, and not giving a flying ____(fill in the blank), singer-songwriter Gen Bello is straight outta Harlem and straight into heartbreak with her latest release, Not Fair.
We're flipping this R'N'B slow burn onto you while Gen Bello flips it on her boo and his usual BS excuse. When you explore the depths of Not Fair, there's an array of emotions lurking on the bottom, waiting to rise to the surface. Gen Bello fuels her conviction, knowing she deserves more as each note is exhaled. Her comforting vocals hug each verse, while the chorus plunges into feelings of hopelessness, disappointment, and a yearning for connection while glazing the surface with heart-wrenchingly sweet notes.
"This song is about being vulnerable with your partner and your partner using those things against you, causing them to treat you differently, so I’m expressing how it’s unfair." - Gen Bello
Not Fair delivers all the feels. Every instrument is channelled in the keys of Sad Girl, from the slow-tempo guitar loop to the lullaby-like chords, accentuating the grief found within betrayal. Gen Bello delivers tonefuls of sombreness and a bucket full of relatability regarding relationship breakdowns. The echos of the electric guitar at the end of each drawn-out ad lib are the magic of producer Kindsey.
"The producer ended up vibing out and sending this track over to me, and I got to writing and recording." - Gen Bello
After wrapping up a number of performances in New York City, Gen Bello is adding the final touches to her next project, titled Not Again, which continues the theme of love and heartbreak.
