Singer-songwriter Sonta Me’Shay blends soul with hints of drill rap, making her a low-key R&B champ on YouTube. Since joining the platform in 2015, the Chicago-based songstress has racked up over 50M views for delivering unfiltered yet soulful gems like the crowd-pleaser “You Ain’t Shit.”
 
Sonta – the youngest of ten siblings in a musical household – turned to poetry and eventually writing raps to help deal with matters of the heart. She prides herself on balancing the aggressive with the pensive in her lyrics, a style that she calls “R&D,” which stands for rhythm and drill. Hit play on her 2018 project, In My Feelings, and there’s no blurring the range of emotions she depicts.  It’s these relatable scenarios she transforms into song that has garnered Sonta a diverse group of fans online.
 
Whether on wax or off, Sonta hopes her fanbase continues to feel the authenticity through her music.
 
“I want them to know that I’m real, that I’m a human being and, and I’ve gone through it all. I want them to know that somebody knows [what they’re going through, too].”
