R&B Sensation Ashlyn Takes You To The "Moon"
Ashlyn's New Single "Moon" from the upcoming album Lover's Circle
Ashlyn describes the music on Lover’s Circle as personal and self-reflective, rather than geared toward any particular audience other than those who enjoy good music. “Moon” was initially written by Ashlyn as a freestyle track inspired by SZA’s “Ice Moon.”
“I like how SZA was so free with her words,” said Ashlyn. “I was able to embrace that concept with ‘Moon.’”
On the single “Moon,” Ashlyn entices a new love interest with the promise of taking him on a cosmic journey – literally “to the moon and back, baby” she sings. The music, a futuristic slow tempo, compliments Ashlyn’s sultry vocals.
Similarly, the accompanying video can only be depicted as the visual representation of Ashlyn's voice on the track: smooth, sensual, passionate and very reminiscent of R&B formats of yester-year where the music held a vocally centered aesthetic. Directed by OG Danny Ocean, the video features the silhouettes of Ashlyn and a sexy male companion against different backdrops - their bodies intertwining in a sycophantic rhythm at times, watch the video on Ashlyn's official YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/
“I had a slight idea of the video concept, as far as it being black-and white, male-model focused and having silhouettes, but the director expanded upon it,” said Ashlyn. “I’m really pleased with the finished product.”
Compared to My Time, Ashlyn’s mixtape released last year, she is more confident in her music and writing abilities. Lover’s Circle will be a direct reflection of where Ashlyn is in her
life right now: a woman who is comfortable in her own skin, yet constantly striving for better – in both love and life.
“I just want to have my music speak to people,” said Ashlyn. “My goal with this project was to enjoy the process and show that I have the ability to write and tell a story.”

R&B singer Ashlyn has blessed Houston’s music scene for a number of years. Her mixtape, My Time, is comprised of seven original songs that take listeners through the cycles of life and love. With the release of its lead single “The Thrill” last year, Ashlyn developed a new sound coming from Houston among female R&B singers. Co-written by DeAndre Wright, the pleasant neo soul-friendly acoustic track compliments Ashlyn’s rich voice as she tells the story of becoming acquainted with a new love. Other notable songs include “Gold Pieces,” giving listeners a piece of R&B over an ode to old-school hip hop beat with positive lyrics; “Secret” highlights the sultriness of Ashlyn’s voice; and finally, the infectious and uplifting “Good Days,” which rounds out the album.
