Tiana Major9 – hailed as “a singular voice in British black soul” by VICE – released her new EP, AT SIXES AND SEVENS via Motown Records.
“To be at Sixes and Sevens means to be at a state of total confusion…Love is confusing,” explains Tiana Major9, who has been giving fans a glimpse into the making of the EP through an autobiographical, four-part miniseries. BEHIND AT THE SIXES AND SEVENS explores the evolution of Tiana, with each episode melodically chronicling the expansion of her sound, artistry, perspective and journey since signing to Motown.

Tiana wrote the song with Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (J. Cole, H.E.R., Anderson .Paak), who also produced, and PRGRSHN (WSTRN, Stormzy, Wizkid).
Earlier this year, Tiana featured on “Rainfall,” a track from Stormzy’s new album, Heavy Is The Head, which topped the Official Albums chart in the U.K. A Vevo DSCVR artist, Tiana roots her bold blend of future-facing R&B, enduring soul, and hip-hop attitude in boundless jazz eloquence twisted up with saucy East London inflection and a touch of Jamaican spirit.
