Growing up in Brooklyn, Bonita Jalane was exposed to music of all types. She has been able to grasp the art of R&B and Soul. Her rhythmic and sultry voice has been vocally around since 2005. Combining her “Sweet” sound with the brass streets of Brooklyn, she has become one of the top up and coming artist. In 2005 her sultry sound caught the ear of Hip hop hit makers Dipset.
As a new artist, she lent her voice to hooks for JR Writer, Cam'ron, Hell Rell, 40cal and more, and found herself performing with the likes of Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Monica, Lyfe Jennings, Fantasia, 3 Six Mafia, Biz Markie, Juelz Santana, Ghostface, Bubba Sparks, Lil Mo, Dondria, David Banner-- and the list of artists and opportunities she seized went on. In 2009 she showed her versatility by being featured on BET’s “How Sweet the Sound” tour. She was able to work with gospel greats such as Marvin Sapp and Hezekiah Walker.
After gaining experience throughout the years Bonita was able to develop her voice into a classic sound that will be heard for years to come.
In a major move to Atlanta, she was able to host her own show which caters to up and coming artist called “R&B Live.” The show has reached over 2.1 million subscribers.
With a distinct sound, Bonita is no longer looking for her voice to get discovered. It’s a slow climb but with industry insiders she's made a name for herself as being one of the most versatile female R&B/Hip-Hop artists on the rise.
She has proven this on her first single, “Outta this World” featuring hip-hop veteran, Mickey Factz that debuted on Vibe.com earlier this year. Her hit single “Stare” won best music video at the 2015 Rendezvous film festival.
Bonita's nostalgic sound is slowly becoming known within the industry. Soon the world will no longer be saying “Bonita Who”.
