At just 20 years old, Dominican Republic native and proud Queen’s songstress Jarline already has two singles under her belt and has caught the attention of her idols on social media.
Jarline is the first female artist signed to Spring Sound, a record label recently founded by music industry mogul Steve Rifkind. The 20-year-old is first and foremost a singer, although she has quickly become a famous face as an ambassador for Savage X Fenty and NYX cosmetics, to name a few.
Following the success of her first standalone single, “Potion,” which garnered over 500,000 streams across all platforms and attention from Jarline’s idols like SZA and Rihanna, the young Latina singer has now released her new single, “Ghost.”
Speaking on the making of “Ghost,” Jarline told Flaunt Magazine: “My session with the Gittens brothers was my first time recording since moving to LA from New York, I was very vulnerable and anxious. I was still early on in my healing from my last relationship and had the strongest urge to run away and look at my life from the outside. It led me to reflect on the types of relationships I was holding on to, both romantic and platonic. I let only my family and a handful of friends know I was moving across the country; I was tired of explaining myself and begging for reciprocity from others. Words are words, but actions speak louder, and I no longer wanted to ignore my gut feeling. No more letting things slide. If someone disrespects me, they lose access to me. I wanted to blow off some of that steam into my music.”
Jarline began playing music at age nine and went on to study art at the Frank Sinatra School Of The Arts, a high school founded by legendary Queens native Tony Bennett. Upon graduation, She was accepted into the prestigious Parsons School of Design on a full scholarship. However, she eventually deferred her studies for a semester to focus on her music career.
