Song of the Day: Confusion – Lady Shaynah

Following on from the release of ‘Over’, LADY SHAYNAH takes the blog’s hotspot for the first time with stunning single, ‘Confusion’ – taken from her forthcoming ‘Chapter 22’ EP.

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.

Now a vocal, songwriting and band coach, LADY SHAYNAH teaches at the ‘Babette Labeij Music Academy’ and ZO! Gospel Choir and is set to release her next EP this year.

Song of the Day: Anyway – Tevan (ft. JoJo HD)

Introducing himself in the music world alongside top YouTuber ‘JoJo’,TEVAN drops his freshly coined ‘desi-swing’ sounds for Your listening pleasure…

To give you the low-down, TEVAN was born to Sri-Lankan parents some 21 years ago, and was raised in Croydon. The young star relocated to Bulgaria to go to University where he met a girl and fell in love but things took a turn for the worst when her family were unaccepting of the relationship. Fast forward to 2019 and the result of TEVAN’s influences and affairs of the heart have been wrapped up and captured in this snappy debut number from the man himself.

Hugely proud of his both his Sri Lankan heritage and his Croydon roots, the upriser has collaborated with a bunch of awesome music peeps to bring ‘Anyway’ to life. Working with Hot Money Studios, the production is a hip-swaying mix of afro-swing whilst paying homage to his own heritage via the Indian tabla within the beat. YouTuber ‘JoJo’, who has also recently debuted his musical talents with his release of ‘My Queen’ on GRM Daily and hit almost one million views, joins the squad with an impressive feature verse. Finally, to put the icing on the cake and bring the all of the elements to life with the crispest and clearest of masters, the one and only Chris Athens, who has leant his ear and touch to everyone from Drake and Rick Ross to Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Usher, N.E.R.D. and Erykah Badu.

With the video premiering exclusively via GRM Daily and the track available on DSP’s now, TEVAN submits a serious case for his debut with ‘Anyway’.
