The “Black Magic” EP by Arielle Diba reveals a unique and inviting singing voice that echoes the sound of her parents’ records. Her music is an expression of her multicultural upbringing and life experiences; it is a fusion of Neo Soul, Afrobeats, Hip Hop, and Gospel. Arielle brings a wealth of life experience to her singing, having studied in France after moving from Cameroon.
This extended play (EP) represents the culmination of Arielle’s fifteen years of hard work as a musician. Arielle brings a genuine sense of realism to her songs and melodies, drawing from her experiences performing alongside Stevie Wonder and making a mark on the Paris urban R&B scene.
Arielle initiated her recording endeavor in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, which led to the 2020 smash hit “So Good to Me.” A lively homage to the 2022 African Cup of Nations, “Africa Wins Tonight” showcased her continued musical talent. “Black Magic,” a six-song EP she released in December 2023, is the pinnacle of her creative career thus far; it captures her warm and confident singing style.
Arielle Diba invites groove aficionados on a royal and emotionally packed procession in this musical journey. Arielle uses the EP to convey powerful messages of acceptance, self-love, and unity with infectious melodies infused with Neo Soul, Hip Hop, and Afro sounds. Themes of justice, appreciation, love, hope, and the poetic tapestry are conveyed with unmatched emotional depth and impact.
