We had the pleasure of interviewing Stela Cole over Zoom video.
Singer/songwriter Stela Cole recently released her anthemic new single "Rhapsody In Pink" via Ultra Records. An audacious pop-come-hiphop interpolation of Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue," the track is all about knowing your self-worth and truly solidifies Stela as one to watch as it spotlights her incredible versatility and fearless authenticity.
Explosive, elegant, and irresistibly larger-than-life, Stela's music radiates the kind of unbridled confidence that leaves a long-lasting impact. The bold energy of her immaculately composed pop comes from years of fighting for her vision and refusing to compromise the elaborate depth of her artistry and she is now set to deliver her most extravagantly realized music yet beginning with “Rhapsody In Pink.” The track landed Stela on the cover of Filtr US' Up Next playlist in addition to support on their On Fleek and Pop Matters playlists and was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday in 9 different countries.
"Rhapsody In Pink" is Stela's latest single and the first since performing on NBC's American Song Contest earlier this year where she represented the state of Georgia and broke the show's season record for week 1 streaming with break-up single "DIY," co-written by Tele (Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts”). Building an audience that has grown with her every step of the way, throughout her career she has released two EPs [Throwing Up Butterflies (2018), Woman Of The Hour (2020)] and a string of independent releases including hit single "I Shot Cupid," the raw and rapturous "You F O," and the sultry "Love Like Mine," racking up over 80 million global streams and support from the likes of Refinery29, HuffPost, PopDust, Just Jared, and Digital Journal among others.
