"RESPECT. Premiere: Tennessee’s Carita Cole Shares Rebellious New Single, “Backseat”"

ennessee has bred many talented musicians of our past and present, with musicians like Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Justin Timberlake, Three 6 Mafia, Yo Gotti, and calling the state home.
Residing in Jackson, TN, Carita Cole is a multi-talented rapper and singer that dived into music at an early age. Carita first began singing and playing piano at the age of 7, trying to imitate the music that her parents would play at home. By age 11, Carita was playing the trumpet. In school, Carita realized that she excelled in music, as opposed to other hobbies, and eventually decided to make it a career.
Jackson, TN is relatively small city, 70 miles east of Memphis. Over the years, the city has taught Carita one of the most valuable lessons she has learned to date; never give up. Despite the fact that many local artists look at each other as competition instead of a potential ally, Carita has remained resilient, while promoting positivity in her music.
Today, Carita delivers her first single release of 2018, titled “Backseat.” With dark, entrancing production from Scott Supreme, Carita takes a rebellious approach, letting us know she will never take a backseat in this industry. Known for her signature raspy voice, Carita continues to make every song she writes just as potent, if not more, as the last.
Carita is known for empowering her fans with her refreshing, thought provoking music that has drawn comparisons to Rapsody, Lecrae, and J. Cole. “Backseat” is certainly a testament of this, with Carita effortlessly switching from sharp lyricism to a bit of singing.
Carita has dropped two projects, “Under Construction” and “Hard” since her 9-track debut, “Caution” in 2014. Though Carita has not announced a release date for her forthcoming body of work, fans can expect the official music video for “Backseat,” to drop in the near future. - RESPECT Magazine
