By combining rich musical knowledge, proven performance chops, and the experience of a wild ride thus far, Viibe Santana utilizes her voice to tell an always real, sometimes raw, and often raucous tale. The Connecticut-born and Atlanta-based R&B singer and songwriter never disguises her intent and ambition, unapologetically dipping in and out of lusty declarations and empowered proclamations. Her story started in Bloomfield, CT. At just two-years-old, she belted along to Mary J. Blige’s classic What’s the 411? from her car seat. Her mom bought her an old school Sony karaoke machine, and she spent countless hours on the microphone. By seven-years-old, she attended a gospel choir summer camp, honing her vocals further. Meanwhile, she listened to everyone from Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn to Prince, Tina Turner, and Diana Ross.
Growing up, she sang in various gospel groups before enrolling in the Hartt Music Program at University of Hartford. She diligently studied jazz vocal performance and music management and graduated with honors. In order to make inroads into the music industry, she worked in various strip clubs, connecting to producers and even singing from the stage when the opportunity arose. Along the way, she became a mom, hustling even harder to support herself and her son. An early demo of her debut single “Ho Tonight” incited widespread interest from major labels.
By the end of 2022, she inked a deal with RECORDS/Columbia Records, earning the payoff of a near decade-long grind. Now, she holds absolutely nothing back on a series of singles and much more to come.
