The “hella Black and oh so necessary” (EBONY) pair kicks off Black Music Month with new single + music video and CMA Fest performance in Nashville.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 16, 2023) — O.N.E The Duo — the first Black mother-daughter duo in Country music — today releases its latest single and music video “Til You Called My Name” from its upcoming debut album Blood Harmony, out August 11 via Visionary Media Group.
Co-written by the duo with John Bettis (Lynn Anderson, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, George Strait, Whitney Houston) and Marv Green (Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Tim McGraw), produced by Nash Overstreet (Hot Chelle Rae),“Til You Called My Name” illuminates the power of unconditional love as a grounding force in a whirlwind world — especially the bond between mother and daughter.
"’Til You Called My Name’ is very sentimental and, I believe, the heartbeat and soul of Blood Harmony,” says Tekitha (who comprises O.N.E The Duo with her daughter Prana Supreme). “It encompasses the pure love between Prana and I and the gratitude we have for sharing this journey with one another. Beyond being a mother and daughter, the song captures what happens to a Being when they give and receive unconditional love. They find home within. The line in the chorus that says, ‘I never knew where home was, I didn't know where home was, Til You Called My Name,’ summed it up perfectly.”
She adds, "This music video captures the tenderness of this song but also closes with a page from our family history: a music-filled house party setting featuring friends like Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, but truly — the most special part of the entire video is that it opens with Prana's voice at 2 years old by way of one of our most personal home movies. It's so special to us and I hope others find it special as well."
“Til You Called My Name” marks the latest single from Blood Harmony, following the CMT 2023 Next Women of Country artists’ hits “Hearts Like Mine” (May 12) and “Feels Good” (March 17).
“Feels Good” (co-written with Nash Overstreet and Shane Stevens) debuted with a world broadcast premiere on CMT, CMT Music and Paramount Times Square Billboards, and fueled explosive growth for the duo on TikTok. The accompanying video, directed by Ana Peralta Chong, has garnered over 2.5 million views on YouTube, and the song has been playlisted across Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, and SoundCloud, and added to regular rotation at SiriusXM The Highway (Country) Channel and Venus (Pop) Channel (where it currently ranks as the #15 most-played song).
The “glamorous and exciting” (NYLON Magazine) duo performed during CMA Fest in Nashville on Friday June 9th, and is readying for more performances which will be announced soon. Visit the O.N.E The Duo website for up to date tour information.

About O.N.E The Duo:
O.N.E The Duo is a mother/daughter duo — Tekitha (mother) and Prana Supreme (daughter) — and their story is rooted in Hip-Hop royalty. Tekitha is the female lead on the Wu-Tang Clan albums and Prana is the daughter of RZA, the founder and de facto leader of Wu-Tang Clan. Together they are pioneers, becoming the first artists to journey from Hip-Hop to Country.
After moving to Music City, the pair created their own stripped-down hybrid Country/Americana style with a diverse range of musical influences including Chris Stapleton, Fleetwood Mac, The Judds, and Motown. As O.N.E The Duo evolves their sound and unveils a series of upcoming projects (“O.N.E” stands for Observant, Noetic, and Effervescent — there's intentionally no period after the "E" because effervescence goes on and on) has created a sound that draws from a diverse range of musical influences including Chris Stapleton, Fleetwood Mac, The Judds, and Motown — and yet is all their own.
