Monique Helene is no stranger to chart success. The Australian music artist started her career in 2009 under the name MoniQ releasing her debut EP Get the Picture, produced by DNA Songs, which spawned the title single, and then further released club bangers The Way You Move Me and Free My Mind with dance producer FST.
Monique has also been an essential part of many shows, like Bor Productions (UK), where she toured all over Europe with French cabaret-style shows, and Material Girl, Music of Madonna Show, where she played to sold-out crowds in clubs and events around Sydney.
Among Monique’s session work credentials are Housewives, America’s Next Top Model, The Voice, X Factor, and many more. On her new single, Hearts on the Line, the singer-songwriter’s vocal prowess is clearly on show. The new track is a superb R&B pop song with a soulful, evocative vocal performance, pristine production and loads of hooks. ‘Hearts on the Line is about relationships,’ Monique says about her new single.
‘It is a conversation between two lovers who have decided to get back together.’ When asked what has influenced her, Monique has said, ‘Her relationships, her upbringing, and the things she has done in her life. As a woman from Sydney who lives in a big city, I have a lot of fast-paced life experiences from which to draw inspiration for my lyrics and music.
I grew up in the 90s and love pop music, so artists like Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, and R&B US artists, as well as their producers, have had a big impact on my work.’ Hearts on the Line features anidentifiable lyric about starting over and a notable rap by MY$T. There’s little doubt that this song will be a smash at radio and online streaming services, reintroducing Monique Helene to the public eye.
