BRIELLE “Ought To Be”
Billboard Charting and MTV Hits, America’s Pop Sensation singer songwriter BRIELLE® who performed the National Anthem at Citi Field for the NY Mets and for the NCAA National Basketball Championship at Madison Square Garden, will be releasing her debut 10-song full length self-titled LP “BRIELLE”, in the spring of 2016. The LP will feature several never released songs including “Love Means”, “Wasted”, “Unstoppable”, and “Ought To Be” to name a few.
The LP will be coming off the heals of her 4th consecutive single, “ROCK THE CATWALK”, released this past summer for NY Fashion Week. The song is a pop remake of the 1980’s smash, “Rock The Casbah” by the Clash. Both the song RtC and video combine her love of music and fashion as she sports the classic outfits of the very designers she sings about in the video.
Her 3rd release, “ROCKET”, released in April of 2015, is a high-octane patriotic anthem, produced by Grammy Producer Ken Lewis, debuted on Billboards Hot Singles Sales at #15 and within one week climbed over Madonna to #8 on June 1st, 2015. It’s video, produced and directed by Annette Navarro, is a party that morphs into an “Alice-In-Wonderland” moment, featuring the bunny mad hatter that awakens to the reality of a “so what just did happened last night? Coffee induced coma”. Currently both the video and the song recently were nominated into the semi-finals of the 2015 International Song Writing Competition in 3 categories.
Released July 22nd, 2014, her debut single, “AVALANCHE”, produced by Grammy Producer Femdouble (Tupac, T-Pain, E-40, TQ) and co-produced by Pete Ivory, peaked at #4 on Billboards Hot Singles Sales and spent 8 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of the chart.
