ABOUT
Ari B's music is known for its style, originality, and dance-able beats, but Ari B takes it to a whole new playing field with her latest new single, ‘Dance into the Party”. The music video hits the dance floors with never seen before moves and her usual, commanding, meaningful narrative. ‘Dance into the Party’ is now available via all major outlets and the accompanying music video was directed by Wayne Isham (Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bon Jovi) and choreographed by Chuck Maldonado (Stomp the Yard, Step Up 4). Both further position Ari B as a performer who will make her indelible mark in the music world. ‘Dance into the Party’ is stamped with Ari B’s now popular, distinctive vocal style. She reminds listeners of Toni Braxton and Aaliyah, and her dancing, Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul. This blend of magic on the screen is a re-imagination of Pop, R&B, and Hip Hop as the new generation likes it to be, dominant yet cool and deep, and riveting till the end. For Ari B, collaborating with Wayne Isham on the concept of the video, and working with such an incredible legend in the industry, was no less than amazing: “I knew after our first phone call that we were going to work great together. He is funny, he is straightforward - both great traits, especially in this creative process. In addition, I felt how passionate and invested he was in the project from day one. On set, he was very enthusiastic and was so involved when working with everybody who was there - it sort of stuck with me that whenever he complimented me, he made sure that I took it and understood it - everything that comes out of his mouth is with purpose, and he wants to make sure his words come across, always. Such a genuine, intelligent, nice guy.” The track is the perfect pop song with its catchy lyrics and driving beat, to serve as the soundtrack to both end of summer celebrations, and year-round parties. If Ari’s works create a spell, the secret lies in a creative regimen that is hands-on and covers every aspect of creation, from the vision and concept, to writing, studio recordings, and on-stage performances. She has found in music and performance her perfect medium to reveal her ‘ideal reflection of life’. Writing and recording at Bristol Studios with Producer Ric Poulin, she has also recently earned a scholarship for musical theatre at the prestigious Boston Conservatory at Berklee. All of 18 years of age, Ari B is no newcomer to the world of music and dance. She found her voice at the age of 7, entered theatre as an actress (‘Into the Woods’, ‘Carrie’, and ‘West Side Story’) and acted in short films, commercial and feature films (‘The Makeover’). She was the youngest ever to perform with the pre-professional dance company, Boston Youth Moves, in downtown Boston, training and performing with Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Chita Rivera, and other well-known choreographers. As a professional artist, Ari B tasted success when her single “By the Pool” won the Best Video of the Year (2017) at the New England Music Awards. Apart from awards, she has also had the privilege to work with renowned artists and top names in the industry, including Ray Kay (Lady Gaga, Justin Beiber, Britney Spears), Mikey Minden, and Kenya Clay (Pussy Cat Dolls, American Music Awards). Her recent performance venues include: House of Blues, Patriots Place, and The Hard Rock Café. ‘Dance into the Party’ is Ari B at her best in vocal delivery and dance moves, and further expands her fan base that loves original music and captivating dance-powered music videos. A ‘firecracker’ on stage, she commands and leads with a riveting narrative that will prove to be the life of the party.

"Infectious pop built on a lazy funk groove, soulful vibes hung on a skittering dance beat, a winding down club classic, it is all of these things and more. This young Bostonian pop-star believes that “the purpose of art is to take us away” to act as a catalyst for escapism and Dance Into The Party is nothing if not a ticket to forgetting the world and finding your own pop-funk space, if only for 4 minutes and 22 seconds. But then again who could only just play the song once?" -A&R “It is apparent that not only can she sing, but Ari B’s dancing skills are unmatched by other female pop singers of her generation. Her astounding dedication to dance and storytelling make Ari B unique” -Skope
“Having watched a few videos on Ari’s YouTube page it’s clear to see that she has another passion. Other than being a superb singer/ songwriter she’s also an extraordinary dancer. Ari could actually be a backing dancer but I’m glad she’s at the forefront because the tunes out there are simply sensational.” -Music My Radar
