TARELA’s New Song ‘Hold Me Down’ is an Ode To All Loyal Women


International Dancehall and Afro-fusion musician TARELA is out with ‘Hold Me Down’, the first single from his impending extended play titled ‘ELECTRIC’.

Known as RecordKilla and Don UberFresh, TARELA currently resides in the USA. His unique sound is a mixing pot of multiple genres. He cleverly fuses Nigerian Dancehall, Pop music and Afrobeats to create his distinct sound. His music is mostly about romantic declarations, resilience, love, motivation, and celebration of life. In the course of his music career which has been for only a few years, he has been quite successful. Churning out good music has never been a problem for the singer and songwriter who used to go by the name Squeeze Tarela. He has built an amazing catalog of celebrated music that includes joints such as ‘Hottest Thing’, ‘Better’, ‘Cocoa Butter’, ‘Bend’ and ‘Showers of Blessings’.


“’Hold Me Down’ is the first single off my 5-track EP titled ‘ELECTRIC’ set to drop this summer. The song was produced by Giggz and the strings by Sam Ofori added more life to the song. I simply wanted to portray the importance of the strength of a woman when she is loved and appreciated by her man. “Hold Me Down” is created for everyone who sees the importance of a loyal woman.”


On the Giggs produced ‘Hold Me Down’, TARELA glorifies all loyal women. By complimenting their significance, strength and beauty, TARELA assures them that they are loved and appreciated. He does this by singing in English and Jamaican patois. TARELA writes songs filled with catchy melodies and lyrics that prioritize love and life that creates a heart-filled vibe.
