Indie R&B/Pop singer-songwriter Gen Bello has unveiled her new single “Desire” — her latest single available on all streaming platforms on June 24th. Her second single in less than a month, Gen Bello is well on her way to becoming a rising star on the NYC music scene.
Written by Gen Bello and produced by TeatimeJones, “Desire” is an upbeat, smooth exploration of wanting someone you know is bad for you in spite of knowing better.
“I actually wrote ‘Desire’ 2 years ago and decided to officially work on it last year,” says Bello. “I love ‘Desire.’ It’s an uptempo song about craving someone that you know isn’t good for you. Desire is a fun sexy song about not being able to resist someone. I wrote this song reflecting on a situation that I had with someone in college. I think a lot of people will be able to relate to the lyrics in ‘Desire.’”
Previously known as Genesis, Gen Bello released her first song “Intoxicated” under her new artist name this past month. Her name change symbolizes a change in her sound. A seasoned NYC performer, Gen Bello is only getting started.
Gen is expected to release more singles under this new name in the coming months, leading up to a new project in 2021.
