I was immediately captivated and inspired by this voice. “Secret” is a sultry, yet clean pop ballad that has a beautiful progression throughout. It’s good reminder too that sometimes simple thematic concepts are all you really need to get a point across. To be completely honest, this is giving me Jessie Ware mixed with a little Christina Aguilera. With tracks like this, Brooker won’t be a secret for too long.
This track was co-produced by Anthony Vasquez & Paul E. Phamous, who has previously worked with the likes of Zendaya. The song showcases a masterclass in combining strength and subtlety, stripping things back with a simple piano to highlight Brooker’s stunning honeyed vocals.
