An instantly recognizable, mellifluous and sultry voice, today the sensational Ghanaian-American artist Amaarae returns to share a gorgeous new single ‘Leave Me Alone’. Following recent releases including the sexy alternative R&B jam ‘Like It’, the groovy Afro-disco inspired ‘Spend Some Time ft Wande Coal’ and a powerful feature on Odunsi’s album cut ‘body count’, this latest offering’s dancehall-inflected riddim is pure West African vibes, replete with lush and overarching guitar licks that draw abundantly from the highlife and Afrobeat tradition. An incredibly thoughtful and ardent lyricist that turns the narrative norms of rap on its head, lyrically ‘Leave Me Alone’ is about learning how to protect one’s peace irrespective of underlying circumstances – Amaarae sings “Talking, Talking, Talk, but talk is cheap- me nuh need favor from no one but God, plus I’ve got me.”, her voice a re-assuring fix that sashays gently atop the Stalag riddim-sounding drum bop.

Bronx-born and raised between Accra in Ghana, AtlantaGeorgia and New Jersey, Amaarae’s cross-cultural experience is the driving force behind her deeply experimental ethos. Her effortless blend of African drumsHip HopNeo-Soul and Alté has catapulted her into the limelight gaining her fans in the likes of The FADERBurberryMarniBillboardGal-demHypebeastNPRBella Hadid and more. Embraced and endorsed by the exciting melting pot of exuberant creativity that is Nigeria’s Alté scene, Amaarae is all about female empowerment and puts her Ghanaian heritage and influences at the core of everything she does. A songwriter, singer, producer and engineer, Amaarae is DIY to the core. From selling mixtapes to her highschool classmates, to throwing herself into learning the ins and outs of the production and engineering process and founding her own independent record label – the Ghana based Golden Child Entertainment Ltd – Amaarae is a rare, authentic and inspiring talent.

Since the release of her debut EP Passionfruit Summers in 2017, she has fast become one of the world’s exciting artists garnering a cult following on the African continent and throughout the diaspora playing shows in LagosLondonLos Angeles and New York; and collaborating with the likes of Santi on ‘Rapid Fire’, Stonebwoy on ‘Pepper Dem’ and Kojey Radical on his 2019 EP Cashmere Tears via the single ‘Sugar’. Having hinted earlier this year at a new project on its way, fans the worldover are eagerly awaiting her next steps and ‘Leave Me Alone’ has done more than satisfy – for now!
