Multi talented singer, songwriter and Producer CKay releases first single, since penning a global deal with Warner Music South Africa. ‘Felony’.
‘Felony’s’ release, is perfectly timed after recent news, that his previous single ‘love nwantiti’ has surpassed the 70 million streams mark – a good omen for his upcoming releases.
Each song on the ‘Boyfriend’ EP is inspired by various guitar genres and a variety of stringed instruments. Recorded during lockdown, we get to see the romantic side of the rising star, as he covers strong relational topics, starting with first single ‘Felony’, a beautifully crafted single that effortlesly crosses between Afrobeats and new-age RnB.
In the lyrics, Ckay admits to th depths that he would go for his love – ”inna my song you’re the melody, I go sleep for cell if loving you is a felony” which translated from pidgin means: “In my song, you’re the melody, I would sleep in a (jail) cell if loving you is a felony”
‘Felony’ is an afrofusion ballad that sounds like love.
The marriage of Eastern vocal riffs, an Afrobeat drums and classical strings gives this ear worm a worldly appeal.
Says CKay: “Felony” was inspired by a girl I was facetiming a lot during covid lockdown”.
