The stunningly atmospheric piece is an ode to anybody who has gone through a rough breakup and come out the other side still feeling confused and with a lot of unanswered questions.
Speaking on the release, she says “The relationship was quite perfect. Until… he woke up one day, saying he had a vision of his future wife. He said I didn’t have all the characteristics of said ‘future wife’, but ‘we could work on that’. This felt like a slap in my face. What broke my heart, even more, is that when I gave him the choice of taking me the way I am or leaving, within the blink of an eye, he chose to leave. The more I reflected upon the relationship, the more questions I had and thus ‘Confusion’ was born.”
From the age of five, LADY SHAYNAH – real name Shanice – was taught to play the piano by her Grandmother and later claimed the title of ‘Music Matters Award Ambassador’ in Rotterdam (2014) and went on to play at the North Sea Jazz Festival (2016) before releasing her first LP ‘Dare’ in 2015.
