LEIGH-ANNE RELEASES LATEST SINGLE ‘MY LOVE’ FEATURING AYRA STARR WITH ACCOMPANYING MUSIC VIDEO
Today, Leigh-Anne releases the latest single ‘My Love’ featuring Nigeria’s rising star Ayra Starr with an accompanying music video via Warner Records out now.
The anemic and infectious track sees Leigh-Anne as she explores the complex truths about self-love and relationships. Leigh’s appreciation for afrobeats/afropop is seen throughout ‘My Love’ as she recruits Magicsticks (Asake) for production and tag-teams with Nigerian artist Ayra Starr. Collaborators on Leigh-Anne’s sophomore single also include PRGSHN, Khris Riddick-Tynes of The Rascals, Alex Goldblatt, Kameron Glasper and DYO.
The Meji Alabi-directed music video follows on from ‘Don’t Say Love’ as Leigh-Anne emerges from the ocean further cementing her rebirth as a solo artist. The choreography-filled music video sees the duo dance their way through the hustle and bustle of Lagos whilst appreciating Nigerian culture, friendships and love as well as shining a light on local actors and dancers.
Speaking on the track Leigh-Anne states “When we wrote this song, I just knew it was something special, it perfectly captures the essence of who I want to be as a solo artist. That feel-good, powerful, and anthemic song – it’s all about celebrating self-love and embracing its incredible power, and when there was a discussion on a feature I know Ayra was the only one who could embody and amplify this message.”
‘My Love’ follows on from Leigh-Anne’s well-received debut single as a solo artist ‘Don’t Say Love’. Produced by Jon Bellion and Pete Nappi, co-written by Aldae, the track combines her smooth vocals with a high-energy, garage-infused beat.
Growing up Leigh-Anne had popstar tunnel vision. In 2011, Little Mix were formed. The rest of that journey is, of course, history. 11 years later, Little Mix are one of the best-selling girl groups of all time as well as one of the UK’s biggest-selling acts, with over 75 million records sold worldwide, 6 UK Platinum albums and over 15 billion streams.
