Meagan De Lima is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter crafting R&B music that comes from a place of heart-centered sweetness and compassion. At the core of much of her music is her family’s rich cultural and musical heritage and this theme comes to the fore in new single ‘Queen’. It’s a special homage to her mother who is nothing short of a modern day heroine.
Here, the young artist tells us exactly why:
“I love my mom. I made this song to shine a light on her heart, and the ferocity and resiliency that makes her march to the beat of her own drum. My mom not only inspires me as a passionate mother of three and a South Asian immigrant to Canada but also because of the mountains she’s climbed later in life, too. She is a breast cancer survivor, played a support role to my father when he was diagnosed a year later, and so much more. I am grateful to have had her to look up to not only as a mom but as a best friend and role model to lean on when times got tough. I want to dedicate this song not only to her but to the dynamic and fierce people we all have in our lives that inspire us and show us what genuine love and strength are made of.”
Alongside her producer Mark Pelli (Sabrina Claudio, Chris Brown, Trey Songs, Jojo), Meagan delivers a sumptuous sound that blends contemporary R&B with acoustic soul that is warm, earthy and lush. Ultimately, this is a song that celebrates the legacy of mothers and their infinite amount of love, strength, and resilience. It honours the queens that shaped us into who we are today.
