One to watch, Precious Pepala makes her debut today with ‘My Eyes Only’, a bold arrival and opening statement from a huge new voice in UK pop. At just seventeen, Precious Pepala’s lyrics manage to contain universal sentiments that speak to her generation – ‘My Eyes Only’ is a soaring vocal showcase about vulnerability in private, wanting to hide her emotions from those closest to her.

Speaking about the track, Precious explains, “’My Eyes Only’ is a song about guarding your emotions and not wanting other people to see you vulnerable, especially in romantic relationships. The lyrics are a true and honest confession about how the way I want to be perceived sometimes contrasts with how I really am.”

Precious grew up in Sheffield in the North of England, where she began singing at the church where her father leads a congregation. After learning guitar at school and starting a girlband with her schoolmates, Precious started writing songs by herself, about issues faced by her generation – insecurity, social anxiety, navigating love and heartbreak for the first time – the result is a fully-formed, brilliant new voice who has already won over a legion of fans online, eagerly awaiting her next move.

‘My Eyes Only’ is out everywhere now.

Stay tuned for more from Precious Pepala this year.

OGRANYA GOES FOR A CLASSY SEXY SOUND IN “SWING”

Published

on

OGRANYA

Africa’s Neo-Soul Architect, Ogranya, has released a surprise single titled, “Swing”. Released on 23 November 2023, “Swing” features Shorae Moore and unveils a new side to the artist. With sensual lyrics and a mesmerizing melody, it conveys the carnal feelings one has for someone.

Written by Ogranya and Shorae Moore, the single features production from LordKnowz. A sultry mid-tempo R&B track with Afrobeats elements, “Swing” embodies the phrase ‘classy sexy’. It centers around physical attraction, luxuriating in passions, seducing, and being seduced. 

Ogranya took a more ‘mature’ approach with the piece, testing his creativity by combining liberal expressionism with his usual conservative approach. “I wanted to make something a bit grown, sensual and pretty much push the envelope to see how explicit I could get with my observable prude writing style,” he said. 

“Swing” is evidence of Ogranya’s openness to experimenting as he has grown confident in his style. With his previous projects, the eclectic artist had been establishing himself as Africa’s R&B Royalty. Having secured his spot, he is comfortable enough to push limits and boundaries. 

Ogranya also revealed that the female voice sampled after his verse is notable Ghanaian singer Adomaa. The bit started as a jest during the song recording, and despite some initial hesitation, the recorded part fit perfectly with the song. “She was in the studio when we were recording, and at some point, she broke into this notoriously accurate Indian accent. There was a bit of singing in there as well,” Ogranya recalls, “She jokingly said that the studio engineer and I should let her record it. To her greatest surprise, we took her seriously and insisted she got on the mic.”

Ogranya’s latest single, “Swing”, showcases a touch of decadence that blends with his usual style, creating a classy and sexy tone.
