Jazz, RnB, and Global Beats Converge in Aria’s Latest Single ‘Smile’ Released Worldwide and now on the playlist.

We are pleased to announce that the new single ‘Smile’ from ‘Aria‘ is now on A-List playlist + will also be played as a special POWERPLAY at 7 PM Pacific USA time every night for the new few months.

Italian artist Aria – real name Mariano Schiavolini – recruits a tour de force of global talent for his latest single Smile. Released Aug 14th of this year, the infectious single is characterised by its strong rhythms, global influences, and masterfully intricate composition.

Smile’s driving force is its undeniable rhythm influenced strongly by South and Central American musical styles, namely rumba and cha cha. However, jazz and RnB influences elevate the song with its positive vocals and message, and instrumentation such as that of American bassist Joseph Patrick, bassist for Steward Copeland of the Police.

Smile’s arrangement is in a way a testament to Aria’s decades spanning legacy in the music industry. With over 120 tracks making up the song (with most contemporary songs only reaching 50), Smile was recorded with older analogue set-ups that retain the individual frequencies of each instrument with more fidelity than their modern counterparts at this complex layering. In doing so, it demonstrates the mastery that comes with having been in the industry for so long now, such is the case with Aria.

The single and its accompanying music video continue in Aria’s trend of global collaboration. As viewers will see, the video brings together the smiles of those from all backgrounds, who interpret the dance of Smile with spontaneous and unique gestures. Behind the scenes, English author Nicolette Turner penned the lyrics which were sung by vocalist Ariel Jones, who also interpreted the song in Portuguese after contributing the lyrics in her native tongue. Smile’s Portuguese version is to be released in the South American market.

Prior to Smile, Aria’s successes have included charting in his native Italy and abroad, rotation on BBC Radio, millions of streams and views on his songs and videos, and charitable drives to help causes close to the artist’s heart. These causes include defending human rights, saving near extinct animals, and fighting apartheid, to name a few.

Smile is a song of universal brotherhood that hopes to bring people of all walks and creeds together through dance. The single is available across all platforms now.

The new single ‘A Christmas Letter’ from ‘Aria’ with its tinkling pianos, soulful vocals and dazzling big festive production is on the playlist now.

The head of music for hollywoodfm.digital said that he loved the new single ‘A Christmas Letter‘ from ‘Aria’ with its tinkling pianos, soulful vocals and dazzling big festive production, that sends shivers down your spine and relaxes you just in time for Christmas . The song has been placed on the hollywoodfm.digital playlist and will be played on high rotation at least once an hour all day and night + as a special Christmas powerplay every day at approx 4: 30 PM Pacific time usa for a month.

Aria’s stirring, heartfelt track, A Christmas Letter, reinforces love and connectedness in a time when Christmas has taken on new meaning and significance in the wake of recent worldwide events.

In April 2022, Aria released The Next Life, a song dedicated to the environment and endangered animals. The Next Life generated 200,000 streams, over a million views, and charted in Italy and Australia.

A Christmas Letter is a classic song in the Motown/gospel style that was recorded in South Africa at the historic Downtown recording studios in Johannesburg. It was mixed by Jack Rouben out of Los Angeles (I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Earth, Wind & Fire).

It features Afro American singer Sherita-O (Boney M.), The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Macedonian children’s choir, Heruvimi. The lyrics were written by Cambridge author Nicolette Turner.

The piece is dedicated to women and their children. On such an important day, many women are away from home for work and have to leave their families behind. Our hearts are with those who have to provide essential services to the community: hospital workers, hotel employees, artists who have to perform often far from home, and many others. It is also a song for peace, something very current and important; think of the women of Ukraine.

A Christmas Letter is on radio today and available to download in online stores.
