O.N.E The Duo — the first Black mother-daughter duo in Country music — today releases its latest single and music video “Til You Called My Name,”from its upcoming debut album Blood Harmony (out August 11 via Visionary Media Group).
Co-written by the duo with John Bettis (Lynn Anderson, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, George Strait, Whitney Houston) and Marv Green (Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Tim McGraw), produced by Nash Overstreet (Hot Chelle Rae),“Til You Called My Name” illuminates the power of unconditional love as a grounding force in a whirlwind world — especially the bond between mother and daughter.
"’Til You Called My Name’ is very sentimental and, I believe, the heartbeat and soul of Blood Harmony,” says Tekitha (who comprises O.N.E The Duo with her daughter Prana Supreme). “It encompasses the pure love between Prana and I and the gratitude we have for sharing this journey with one another. Beyond being a mother and daughter, the song captures what happens to a Being when they give and receive unconditional love. They find home within. The line in the chorus that says, ‘I never knew where home was, I didn't know where home was, Til You Called My Name,’ summed it up perfectly.”
She adds, "This music video captures the tenderness of this song but also closes with a page from our family history: a music-filled house party setting featuring friends like Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, but truly — the most special part of the entire video is that it opens with Prana's voice at 2 years old by way of one of our most personal home movies. It's so special to us and I hope others find it special as well."
“Til You Called My Name” marks the latest single from Blood Harmony, following the CMT 2023 Next Women of Country artists’ hits “Hearts Like Mine” (May 12) and “Feels Good” (March 17).
“Feels Good” (co-written with Nash Overstreet and Shane Stevens) debuted with a world broadcast premiere on CMT, CMT Music and Paramount Times Square Billboards, and fueled explosive growth for the duo on TikTok. The accompanying video, directed by Ana Peralta Chong, has garnered over 2.5 million views on YouTube, and the song has been playlisted across Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, and SoundCloud, and added to regular rotation at SiriusXM The Highway (Country) Channel and Venus (Pop) Channel (where it currently ranks as the #15 most-played song).
The “glamorous and exciting” (NYLON Magazine) duo performed during CMA Fest in Nashville on Friday June 9th, and is readying for more performances which will be announced soon. Visit www.onetheduo.com for up to date tour information.
