A Filipina-British singer whose mother is from Davao has been making waves in the UK music scene. 

Back in 2016, Vanessa White was described as one of the promising R&B voices to emerge from a crowded British landscape. This year, with the release of her brand-new EP, “Chapter Two,” she’s looking to make good on that promise. 

White dropped “Running Wild” last month, a raunchy banger that’s in line with the overall theme of her record about sex, lust, and trust. 

A writer from Nylon liked the track so much that she dubbed White as a singer who’s well on her way to be crowned the new queen of R&B, praising her for the “growth” she had since parting with the PG-rated pop of her former girl group, The Saturdays. 

BBC also took notice of White, describing her sound as clearly influenced by US singers such as Janet Jackson, Alliyah, Brandy, and Mariah Carey “without sounding like a cheap, plastic counterfeit.” 

Complex Magazine hailed White for creating music that’s resonates with women “advocating a strong sexuality as being so bad it’s always good.” 

White’s EP is available in the Philippines, a country, the singer said, she frequently visits for its beautiful and pristine beaches. 

She isn’t shy in sharing photos from her trips to Boracay and Palawan on her Instagram account. She also recently posted a throwback snap of her wearing a Philippine-flag inspired dress as a kid –clearly proud of her Filipino roots. 

White’s mom works as a nurse in the UK.
