Listen To – Shay Lia – Love Me Love Me Not
French Rising Star Shay Lia Releases her brand new sunshine single ‘Love Me Love Me Not‘ from her forthcoming EP
Taken from her forthcoming EP, ‘Love Me Love Me Not’ follows ‘All Up To You’ and is a welcomed return for a deeply adept artist who has been putting her own stamp on contemporary R&B and electronic music on a string of releases including her acclaimed debut album ‘Dangerous’ last year.
‘Love Me Love Me Not’ effortlessly blends pop influences with afrobeat to create a warm and melancholy offering. Referencing the youthful nostalgia of picking petals from a flower, the track explores the ups and downs of new love and is the perfect soulful track for these warmer months.
Speaking on the single, Shay Lia said: “If this song had a scent, it would be coconut oil mixed with vanilla.
I wanted it to feel intimate and soft. I was definitely exploratory with this song – I wanted my listeners to feel how sensuality, pleasure and melancholy can blend into the same song and share the experience of being friend zoned from a woman’s perspective. It happens to us too and we should not be afraid to share how it can make us feel! It can be empowering to be vulnerable.”
