If there’s one thing Queen of Hearts Sariah knows how to do, its tell love stories. Not the kind where girl meets boy and they live happily ever after. Sariah sings a more realistic love story; where girls drink body shots off one another and use men for their own sexual gratification. These are the songs about today’s party girls – and they’re igniting dance floors all over the world.
“For so long, only bad girls talked openly about sex,” explains the singer. “I’m the first good girl to tackle the subject because believe it or not, we good girls enjoy it too.”
Sariah grew up in Massachusetts, where she began piano lessons at five and vocal and dance lessons soon after. Whitney Houston was an early inspiration. “I was drawn to how Whitney blended tremendous vocal power with gut wrenching soul. She was a true diva who sang from the heart and delivered in a way that made others feel it in theirs.”
Sariah felt destined to be a diva too. However, she would not follow Houston’s path. She wanted to carve one all her own. That meant finding her own truth to sing.
After college, she moved to New York City and was captivated by the bright lights and velvet ropes. She sings about it in ‘Deep N Luv’, her debut track that broke into Billboard’s top twenty last year.
“Every night I would slip into my cutest outfit and head to the club,” she remembers. “I couldn’t wait to dance all night to my favorite songs and find a beautiful man under the strobe light.
“When I teamed up with producers Mass Ave Productions,” she continues, “they presented me with a record that matched my New York experience. The collaboration and the recording was so much fun because it brought the life I was living to song.”
As ‘Deep N Luv’ climbed the Billboard charts, Sariah realized she wasn’t the only girl who could relate to its message. In fact, it spoke to a whole generation of empowered girls, all unashamed to be untamed. It’s a subject she tackled in her second track ‘All About Sex’.
“I found my ‘All About Sex’ man on the dance floor,” she says. “I loved that everything was crystal clear. We both knew what we were there for and there was no baggage.”
Inevitably, he began inquiring about Sariah’s life outside of their arrangement. “That’s when things got tricky. We began to think there might be something more to us so we made an effort to see each other outside of the bed. Our relationship became confusing and worse, it lost the intrigue. Soon after that, I stopped returning his text messages.”
“‘Just goes to show ya, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” laughs Sariah. “A purely sexual relationship can be satisfying.”
Sariah aims to become the next Queen of Nightlife. “Club music is where my heart is. I love the passion, the freedom to express one’s self, the sexiness, the mystery, and the excitement. I want to be the fire of nightlife and I want my music to be its anthem.”
