‘Shay Lia’s voice is soft and angelic, and laid over top of Kaytranada’s disco-funk inspired production makes it sound like both a throwback and a futuristic single at the same time’ – Noisey
Kaytranada has a new protégée and her name is Shay Lia. Shay has just announced her brand-new single ‘Blue’ produced by Kaytranada & BADBADNOTGOOD, which has premiered via The Fader.
After teasing us last month with a short visual for her single ‘Losing Her’, the Djiboutian-French R&B singer/songwriter now makes a firm comeback unveiling her new single ‘Blue’.
Listen to ‘Blue’
‘Blue’ is the third single to be produced by the partners-in-crime, after Kaytranada’s album 99.9%’s lead single ‘Leave Me Alone’ and ‘3 Months’ and to complete the squad, they have welcomed BadBadNotGood onto their production team for ‘Blue’
Heavily influenced by R&B and Soul, Shay describes her new single as being about ‘Channeling raw emotions buried deep in her soul to heal some wounds,’ and describes the writing process as, ‘The best way to externalize unconscious emotions or feelings that may have been shut down for too long.’
Shay is also making plans to bring her live show to London and plans on releasing more collaborations with her favourite musicians, ‘It’s been a true blessing working with minds like Kay. He has become such a young icon over the past four years and it has been really inspiring to witness.’
‘Blue’ is written by Shay Lia and produced by Kaytranada & BADBADNOTGOOD.
