Sensual and stylish, R&B musician Carla Prata
turned heads in 2021 with her Colors show where she performed her latest single at the time, Certified Freak
, an explicit and versatile blend of laidback rapping and singing. Prata’s musical style is a homage to her time spent living around the world, and with her base in South London. The young musician, at just 23 years old, has made a name for herself in the English capital and further afield. Her strong aesthetic sense comes across in her rich visuals, which feature dramatic storylines and gorgeous backdrops. The same ambitious energy comes through in her music, where Prata proves unbound by genre, whether its afrobeat, a styling of dark and cinematic pop, or lackadaisical R&B groove. Prata remains singular, championing a fresh, queer style, with a zeal that will surely carry her far.
