Kiarra Armani Rivera “Mani” Madness, a Brooklyn NY singer, rapper and songwriter was surrounded by music all of her life. Her dad was a rapper/producer who had the pleasure of working with many artists. At the age of 15 she moved to Columbia, SC. Shortly after, she signed to a record label and put out her first single entitled: “Wind Your Body Up” which hit the Billboard charts.
Now Mani Madness is part of the Idolize Music Group family, with her single “We all Night”, produced by Vinny Idol, D-Block super Producer, and executive produced by OvaCeas (PentHouse Boyz). It’s clear that Mani Madness has been broadening her talent in music and she hasn’t been restricting herself to the same old hiphop beats and hi hats. This shows throughout her single “We all Night”. She rhymes, she sings and she does it well. Plus her collaborations with Vinny Idol and OvaCeas, really help this track to come out top.
It won’t take much more than one listen to get used to it. “We all Night” is good because it portrays Vinny Idol’s broadening imagination via music creation and also shows Mani Madness to have an ability to rhyme on even the most urgent of beats. The track combines Mani Madness’ chilled sensitive style with her aggressive and authoritative style, giving the song the ability to stand tall on both street and commercial level.
Mani Madness is a work in progress, and this track is a huge step forward for her career. Her rapping is edgy, and her overall singing style is mature, making the song a rhythmic serving of upbeat rap infused with pop and R&B textures. She brings out her sexy side, her fierce side, her street side and her vulnerable side while maintaining a cool groove and explicit lyrical content. In fact the lyrics are beyond hot!
I really didn’t expect “We all Night” to be on the level it is. Mani Madness is a welcome beacon of light in a genre that has been too long dominated by the same pointless male stereotypes. She has her own flare and twist! This is a good one.
