Introducing your newest musical fixation: Houston artist Symone Royale has shared a new single in the form of the seductively funky “Loose.” It’s her first piece of new music since the arrival of her 2020 debut album Goin’ Deep and its collection of sensually minded, dance-pop hybrids of R&B and reggaeton. With tracks like the amorous “Sexy Love” with its sizzling riffs and the dreamy grooves found in “Facetime” (feat. Troop Brand), it established Royale as a reliable creator of intoxicating luxuriant club anthems.

So it should come as no surprise that her latest banger of a track “Loose” seems to mix all the delectable best bits of Royale’s music. Against the energizing bounce of an impossible to resist bass line she unloads bar after bar about finding delicious pleasure in a night of dancing — and the fiery intimacy ignited between two people looking for a good time.
It’s that torrid passion that Royale’s music so passionately echoes through the track’s funk-centered soundscape. Everything — from the buoyant vibration of its beats to her own ecstatically layered vocals — “Loose” is the song you bump in preparation for a night devoted to treating yourself to all your desires. One that echoes via its fervent energy other iconic anthems like Lizzo’s “Blame It On The Juice.”
“‘Loose’ is about letting go and letting your hair down to dance like nobody’s watching,” Royale said of the single. “From the funky bassline to the catchy beat, it’s guaranteed to make you want to dance. There was a lot of sad music out during the time I wrote this song. I wanted to create something fun and playful that reflected all the good things that were happening in my life! So I packed my recording equipment and flew to Vegas to write new music and party.”
Growing up in Houston, Royale had her first interaction with music through the church, where she learned how to play piano and developed her singing. Her performances for the congregation eventually led to new stages: which included funerals and weddings, talent shows, and even larger events organized by the city. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music she started to cultivate her sound into the funk-pop mixture it is blossoming into today.
