New Music: Rayana Jay - "Magic"
Rayana Jay creates nothing short of magic in her latest single, appropriately named... Magic.
The Bay Area native began singing in a choir at the young age of 10 and her soulful roots in music have developed with age. Sorry About Last Night, Rayana's debut EP, dropped in Fall 2016, introducing us to her calm-crooning style which is a balanced mixture of soul, RnB, hip hop, and a dash of funk, provided in part by her choice of production. Supplying stories from the perspective of an inquiring lover, the EP revolves around a topic most can relate to- love; or at least the idea of love. A relationship; or at least something like one. You can literally press play and let Rayana do the rest. Each track leaves us wanting more and skipping is completely unnecessary.
Magic is the first single from her upcoming EP, Morning After, which piggybacks off of SALN. The perfectly paired production is provided by UK based producer ROMderful. His funky production lends a whimsical yet bold foundation which leaves us snapping, bouncing, dancing, or all of the above.
This song is for those times that someone has a bit of something that you can't quite put your finger on... something special, something out of this world, something magical. Check it out below and be on the look out for Morning After, set to drop soon, (but not soon enough.)
