MIKHALA JENÉ RELEASES LIVE PERFORMANCE OF “WHEN BRIDGES BURN” FROM FORTHCOMING EP

Singer, songwriter, artist, and creative southern belle Mikhala Jené, newly signed to Def Jam Recordings, releases live performance video for “When Bridges Burn”, new song from forthcoming new EP. The upcoming new project is the long-awaited follow-up to Mikhala’s debut, the critically acclaimed 7-song EP, Carolina Blues (2018), her collaboration with Grammy®-nominated producer Deputy, who originally signed Mikhala to his APT 216 imprint at the beginning of her journey. The EP spun off “Mad Bitches” and “All I Want,” break­through tracks for Mikhala that amassed over 4 million streams.  A key turning point took place in December 2021, when the “Mad Bitches Remix” featuring Ro James was featured in the final season of HBO’s hit series ‘Insecure,’ in the final scene and end credits of “Tired, Okay?” (season 5: episode 6).  In the wake of the sync, the track peaked at #26 on the iTunes R&B chart, rose to #44 on the U.S. Shazam chart, and was the #1 Shazamed record in nearly a dozen cities across the country. The reaction quickly caught the attention of Def Jam Recordings. But in fact, as far back as May 2019, Mikhala had joined the Shea Butter Baby Tour opening for Ari Lennox. June 2020, Mikhala was featured in the Escape Tracks Virtual R&B Festival that partnered with YouTube’s #WithMe campaign to benefit the MusicCares COVID-19 Relief fund.  In July 2020, Mikhala appeared in 300 Enter­tain­ment’s ‘Unplugged’ series hosted by music mogul and CEO Kevin Liles. That same month, Mikhala was the subject of the NPR ‘Tiny Desk’ series ‘Contest Top Shelf’ sponsored by State Farm. Then last year, Mikhala’s “We Are the Promise,” her theme song for the Will Smith-produced docuseries ‘Amend’ on Netflix won Best Score In A Document­ary Series/TV at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (November 2021).
