Jeyaia (pronounced “Jay-uh”) is an English-born artist currently residing in Australia. Her team hit my line recently with her latest song. “Rising” is a smooth contemporary R&B song that feels a bit like a Goapele cut. That’s what brought me into the track initially, because Goapele deserves all her flowers. What kept me listening is Jeyaia’s songwriting and the fact that she’s trying to revitalize herself in the face of a journey of self-discovery. She wants to find unconditional love, both for herself and from other people. Freeing oneself of conditional love can be a struggle, but it’s one that’s entirely worth it.
The vibes on this one would work well with a coffee/feel good playlist. Additionally, her vocals are strong and the message is one that’s universal. Check out “Rising” below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
