ANNOUNCES SIGNING TO WARNER RECORDS


March 15, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) – Continuing to make waves, rising Los Angeles-based R&B pop singer, songwriter, and performer MaKenzie unveils a stunning and scorching new single entitled “Maybe” ft. TA Thomas out now. It notably marks her official debut for Warner Records.


"’Maybe’ was one of the first songs I wrote when I first started flying to LA to work on my music," MaKenzie says. "’Maybe’ came from my first session with Rob Knox. We wanted to create a song that felt like one of those late 90s/early 2000s R&B ‘sing along in the car real loud ‘cuz you’re frustrated in your relationship or you just ended shit and you now gotta vent’ type records. We wanted to make a track that made you feel like you were going through that even if you aren’t at least for the three minutes and some change that it takes you to listen to the song."


The track hinges on a throwback-style beat, nodding to turn-of-the-century R&B with a fire and flair of its own. The bass thumps through a warped string loop as she confesses, “I love you no more.” The momentum swings towards the song’s shuddering and soulful refrain, “Maybe I wanted to know what you think, maybe I wanted to show you something, maybe I want to see you in my dreams.” It showcases the 26 year-old’s skyscraping range, deep dynamics, and palpable attitude.


Born in Kentucky, MaKenzie immediately embraced music as a kid. She went from performing with her family in church at barely two-years-old to immersing herself in the catalogs of formative influences such as Prince, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Brandy, and Toni Braxton in addition to the likes of Led Zeppelin and Dream Theater. She made a popular appearance on The Terrell Show, while her cover of the Supremes’ classic “You Can’t Hurry Love” tallied just shy of six million streams.


She continued to build an audience with consistent R&B and gospel covers on social media. In 2024, MaKenzie inked a deal with Warner Records, and officially introduced herself with the new track “Maybe” and more to come.
