Nigerian alternative singer Ilaye has been on our radar for quite sometimes now, and with every release, she has proven herself worthy of our undivided attention. Last year, she released a 6-track EP “Pneuma” which a very beautiful project. And even though it didn’t end up on the year-ending charts, music lovers and culture curators who were privileged to listen to the EP had Ilaye’s praise on their lips. And it’s pleasing to know that she isn’t resting on her oars as she has put out another beautifully-written and brilliantly delivered single titled ‘Fix’.
The Sirbastien-produced ‘Fix’ is a thrilling sonic smoothie crafted from a seamless blend of alternative, RnB and pop genres, showcases the nifty and multifaceted disposition of the Ilaye’s sound. Like her previous records, her lyrical gifts are on full display as she delievers this letter-like message to an anonymous lover.
“over the past few months, i’ve focused on honing my craft and feeling at home in my body. also wrote some songs. this is one of them. thank u for always riding w me and listening to the sounds i create,” she shared on Instagram while announcing the single. So going by this message, we know there’s more to expect from the sweet-singing Ilaye in the coming days.
