R&B singer-songwriter and model Julianna Townsend drops her new single, “I won’t wait,” a song about weighing the person she is now with her younger self.
Julianna explains, “The song ‘I Won’t Wait’ basically has a deeper meaning to me than it may seem. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, I do struggle a lot with self-confidence and with negative thoughts about myself. And with this song I wanted to express how I sometimes would like to be my younger self again – me as a child seemed so much calmer, funnier, less thoughts what other people would think, and also more self-confidence and open to fulfill dreams.”
Produced by Shuko, who has worked with Kanye West, Timbaland, and Anderson .Paak, “I won’t wait” follows on the heels of Julianna’s previous hit singles, “Drunk of Love,” “Trigger,” and “Sunday Blues.”
Julianna took the second spot on 2018’s Germany’s Next Top Model, followed by becoming the face of three major TV ad campaigns. She burst onto the music scene in 2019, releasing her debut single, “Sunday Blues,” amassing more than 1,500,000 streams. In 2020, Julianna dropped her debut EP, Day One, delving into love, hope, dreams, and uncertainty.
Known for her captivating, energizing live performances, in her interview with Sutter Dialog’s Christina Kerling, Julianna revealed, “I think the energy comes because I love being on stage. The passion to move myself, to have fun with the musicians, and to just let go. I don’t think about it much and just do it. And when you get positive feedback from those around you, the more fun and energy you have.”
Featuring funky guitars atop a delicious, syncopated rhythm, “I won’t wait” radiates gleaming washes of harmonics dripping with wistful savors. Julianna’s velvety, lush voice imbues the lyrics with musing timbres, giving the tune pensive flavors.
It’s one of those cool, nuanced, evocative voices full of luscious, lilting tones and wickedly alluring modulations.
Julianna Townsend has it going on! “I won’t wait” delivers a contagious rhythm, glimmering, skiffing guitars, and the posh voice of Julianna Townsend.
