Banks unleashes new single ‘Goddess’

Jillian Banks is the newest internet phenom to gain worldwide acclaim well before even releasing an album. Based on the strength of her single “Brain” at the beginning of the year she’s become an established name in new music, touring the UK and stopping into BBC Radio One for an in-studio performance. (If you haven’t heard her version of Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody” yet, should really listen here.)

Today she shares the title track of this fall’s debut album, “Goddess,” and no surprise—it’s gorgeous. Banks’s voice is commanding, and the electro R&B landscape makes you want to dive in and swim around for a while.

Banks’s debut “Goddess” is out out September 9th. Pre-order it here and get yourself a copy of the single now. Stream “Goddess” below.
