For many, music is proving the ultimate soothing source during these trying times. And one of the tracks gaining ample traction is Ksenia and Stevie Mackie’s ‘Only Want You More.’
The stirring single sees the rising star and the world-renowned vocal coach fuse their talents on a song that speaks to the isolation millions are experiencing at present.
Having drummed up buzz on the stream scene, the video for ‘Only’ arrived moments ago.

Simple, yet effective.
That Grape Juice caught up with Ksenia, whose preceding single ‘Fire With Fire’ rocked iTunes.
During the brief chit-chat, she shared more on her latest offering as well as what’s to come:
With the time we’re going through at the moment, how does ‘Only Want You More’ speak to the audience?
So far, I keep hearing people talk about how the song makes them reflect on their relationships, especially in light of the pandemic. We don’t always value the important people in our lives until something bad happens. I want us all to hold onto the people we love and never let them go and only want them more.
What was it like working with Stevie Mackey on the track?
We had a blast! Stevie is very talented and musical, he’s also my vocal coach so he’s been teaching me some cool Soul tricks! I love him. So I showed up at his house at 5pm and we rehearsed, recorded, shot behind the scenes footage, did a photoshoot, and even shot his portion of the music video. I left at 11pm very happy.
What function is music having for you during this time?
Music has been very therapeutic, I started doing TikTok and it’s all about music! Songwriting and singing is so uplifting and inspirational for me and I am working on new records right now!
What can we look forward to from Ksenia moving forward?
I am working on an EP and also on comedy rap songs! It’s interesting how singing emotional ballads and rapping comedy tracks are equally important to me! So in the near future, get ready to meet K-sen the rapper!
