“Shelter” is the latest offering from 19-year-old Philadelphia-based R&B singer and spoken word poet Christinna O. The track, produced by Rogét Chahayed (“Sicko Mode,” “Sky Walker,” “Broccoli”) and Wes Singerman (Rich Brian, Tyus, L Devine), is her first single to see commercial release.

“Shelter” is a study of the complicated pain of a passion of love being taken for granted, pulling together influences from contemporary artists like Frank Ocean and singers her parents introduced her to like Aaliyah. “This last time last year, I was writing/conceptualizing this song in my grandmother’s bathroom,” Christinna says. “I was having more than one account where something or someone was making my love feel small in the world.”

A Miami native and a rare queer voice in R&B, Christinna is also a rising spoken-word poet who’s competed in the NAACP’s national slam poetry competition. She found her way to music and poetry in her early teens while being home-schooled to avoid bullying she’d faced in school.

Her next EP, “Girl in Passing,” is slated for release in 2019.
