Song of the Day: The One – Efya (ft. Tiwa Savage)

Ghanaian soulstress EFYA calls upon renowned artist Tiwa Savage to create a beautifully, elegant masterpiece, taking shape of her second release of the year, ‘The One’. The sun-soaked single finds Efya at her effortlessly, enchanting best, teaming up with producer Blaq Jerzee for a romance tinged single.

Efya has never been one to stay in her lane; a singer, actress and humanitarian, she strives always to be the best version of herself whilst helping others. Blending soul, kwaito, afrobeats, pop and r&b, she often collaborates with other artists from different countries such as Mr Eazi and Wizkid.

Since bursting onto the music scene with her powerful songs, she has won seven Ghana Music Awards, two City People Awards, a Best Female nomination at the 2014 MTV African Music Awards and an Artist Of The Decade nomination at the 2018 VGMAs. Sarkodie, another of Ghana’s leading lights, loves her, as does Diplo, whose Major Lazer jammed onstage with the star at Accra’s Sandbox in 2019.

Song of the Day: Love Potion – Jai Amore

Off the heels of his falsetto blazing single ‘Give Me You’, released earlier this year, North West Londoner JAI AMORE‘s latest single, ‘Love Potion’ is another intimate vocal performed on top of a classy guitar and string
arrangement, which embodies both new school and old school R&B with a hint of soul.

Speaking of his latest creation, Jai says: “I’ve tried to paint a musical landscape where you find yourself feeling the nostalgia of 90’s
RnB, the theatrics of opera, and the realness of a story that unfolds with each line. I think
there’s so much we still love and learn from the RnB we’re making in the UK, because we
have such unique stories to tell, and a unique way of telling them.”
