Lagos-born, Toronto-based singer/songwriter Shola is back with her second single of 2023. Following up on the bouncy R&B found in ‘Promises’, new offering ‘Give Your Heart Another Beat’ takes her silky smooth vocals and brings them into the context of tropical house. The warm keys, rich bass and plucky guitar melodies play into the reverberant drums that build you up into the drop. This chorus processed the vocals into stuttered chords, maintaining the gorgeous harmony and blending in twinkling synth beeps. With themes of love and heartbreak, the track will give you a taste of the sun no matter the time of year.
Shola adds, “It’s about a softer kind of dance. And even in all of life’s chaos, there are still always beautiful things to hold on to.”
