Listen to Polly A’s New Single “Like We Used To” Now

Polly A has released her new single “Like We Used To” today!

The LA-based songstress’ track is off her forthcoming EP Ghetto Gold Dream, which is set to debut on Friday, August 26th.

Throughout her new EP, Polly A zig-zags between R&B, reggae, alternative, and hop-hop with equal parts grace and gusto. Ghetto Gold Dream serves as a platform for Polly A to explore her own artistry and talent, years after breaking into the music industry as a lyricist. Using her background in poetry, Polly A is now sharing songs that are an extension of herself.  Performing at both Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza this summer, Polly A continues to awe crowds as solo performer.

Growing up to the sounds of Bob Marley and Yellowman on her mom’s stereo, Polly A — aka Meleni Smith — moved to New York City, and immediately immersed herself in music. She began to craft a hybridization of her inspirations over the course of penning countless songs and has collaborated with some of music’s biggest names including J. Cole, who she co-wrote the gold-certified “Crooked Smile” with, as well as Alicia Keys and more who would go on to record her music. Now, Polly A has emerged with an unpredictable and undeniable style of her own, reflecting everything from punchy lyrical poetry to an island swagger.
