Norway’s Malin Pettersen recently made the jump from Americana to pop. Branching beyond her original foundation, she collaborates with Stefanos Yowhannes in her newest single “Crying”. A beautiful R&B track, “Crying” offers the very essence of pop music that shaped her formative years. Nostalgic yet fresh, “Crying” shares the solace that certain songs brough to Malin when she was young, offering a time jump back to the late 90’s / early 2000’s. The harmonious feature with Stefanos offers comparisons to an early Destiny’s Child, showcasing a great energy between the two artists.
