Young Leo Waters has hit the ground running with his first single, Smoke + Mirrors, garnering interest even before its official release on TikTok and across social media. An R&B track that features Waters playfully singing to a lover he seems to be only going round in circles with, Smoke + Mirrors is a tune for the time of year when winter make-ups and break-ups are rife.
Available to stream on all platforms today, Waters’ single is a sensual, soulful lust song that touches on the kind of youthful love we can all relate to. You might’ve heard his catchy vocals somewhere in the TikTok universe already, but prepare for what the upcoming musician might have in store for the new year.
His love for music began way back when, with his first connections to the industry forming through his dance career at the age of 15. Ever since his teenage years, Walters had his sights set on stardom, dancing with the likes of Da Baby and Coi Leray, but all the while knowing he wanted his career to revolve around making the music himself. A few years and few attempts to breakthrough later, Waters’ path crossed with legendary producer Donn Robb, and a musical match was made that has now set the tone for the upcoming star’s future trajectory. With engagement soaring on TikTok for his Smoke + Mirrors teaser, the future looks bright for Waters, with a set of mixtapes and an entire album waiting to be released come 2024.
