Lead Single from My Way EP out June 16th
Nigerian-American multi-talented singer, songwriter, actress and producer Lisa Yaro shares her amapiano-influenced club anthem “Savage” – listen here. The song, produced by RexMADEIT, is an energetic party-starter that serves as the lead single from her upcoming EP, My Way, set to be released on June 16th. Along with the EP, a colorful music video directed by LENSGOD will debut showcasing people dancing and partying in the streets of Lagos, Nigeria.
Yaro describes, “‘Savage’ is an energetic club record that gets you hyped and gives you the freedom to let loose and just have a good time! I really wanted to make a summer record that embodied FUN. So many times we get wrapped up in the day to day grind that we forget to simply dance. I hope my record can be that escape for anyone looking to blow off some steam through dancing. Good music and good vibrations are what I want to add to the world and I believe that my EP is a reflection of that.”
My Way will be Yaro’s first project, following her success as a songwriter with will.i.am, LeToya Luckett and Mya with whom she contributed to the Grammy-nominated project “Smoove Jones” in the Best R&B Album category. The EP will follow a series of successful single releases that include “Biko,” “Domitilla,” featuring Mayorkun, and “Yaro,” featuring Afrobeats superstar Zlatan. Her music video for “Yaro” gained rotation on BET Jams, Revolt TV and BET Soul. The song’s combination of Afrobeats and R&B led music blog The Knockturnal to say that “Lisa has created a sound for herself within the Afrobeats genre that incorporates both sides of her culture.”
