Following the release of her debut single “Like Dat,” Ghanaian singer and songwriter Asari is back with a new single titled “You Won’t Go.” Mary Yeboah, popularly known as Asari, started singing when she was seven years old, and ever since then, she has continued to grow her skills as an artist. Despite having parents who didn’t support her music, Asari’s determination and passion for music have led her to establish music networks.
On her latest record, Asari sings about the hurt that comes after heartbreak. Here, she reminds her ex-lover of all the sweet promises he made to her and gives listeners a glimpse of what was, “And this kind of love hurt me different. And this kind of love break me different.” Most times, the love affair we envision for ourselves mostly turns to dust, but Asari expects to much from her lover, and she gets burnt, “Odo I thought you won’t leave, odo I thought u won’t hurt me odo I thought u won’t play me.” Asari’s unique voice flows seamlessly over the production, and you can feel her emotions seeping through the record.
If you like this record, you should be ready to get more good music from the young artiste as she plans to release an album soon. She had to say about her soon-to-be-released project, “My goal is to release my first album while inspiring other young African women to follow their dreams. I have released my first single “Like Dat,” by Asari Music on all streaming platforms. I am also currently working on my album titled, “A Tale of an African Woman,” which has 8 songs. I have written over 70 songs ranging from Afrobeats, Afropop, and R&B. I also do local performances and covers. Overall, I dream of traveling and performing around the world while spreading my reach on the African continent and also outside the continent. The album dives into the experience of an African woman. It covers the feelings of heartbreak, feeling lost in life, being looked down upon, being true to oneself, enjoying your life, and being okay with making mistakes. The album combines afrobeat, R&B, and Pop while bringing a creative sound that speaks to whoever listens. I aimed to create a space for my African identity to emerge in my music.”
Here at The PGM Club, we have our fingers crossed about what Asari does next. In the meantime, listen to her new record here and enjoy.
