Last year, Azawi proved a point and got everyone hooked not only on her voice but also on her writing skills as well. She got everyone excited with her ‘Lo fit’ EP that the public expected more of her throughout the year which was disrupted by Covid.
But in 2021, things are looking sharp for the Swangz Avenue artiste as she’s slated to release an album. Before that, the artist and her management have decided to release both the audio and visuals of the first single off that album titled ‘My year’.
Produced by Michael Fingers at Swangz Avenue studios and written by herself, ‘My year’ is a very different sound from Azawi’s last releases. It is about self-affirming success and abundance. A very conscious song in English to lead the album is a very bold move by both the artist and her record label but this speaks a lot to what they intend to achieve.
“I wanted to give myself an opportunity for a bigger audience,” Azawi commented while appearing on a radio morning show to premiere the song. The song is predominantly English and the sound is Afro-pop.
The song has been released with a befitting video shot at Moonlight Studios in Johannesburg. Directed by Kenny Mumba, Azawi appears with her new bold look in this multi-scene colorful video. The director delivered an abstract feel-good tapping into the global trend of abstract videos with great visuals.
Azawi’s album is expected mid-year and if this is a feel of what is yet to come, then Azawi is going for higher bets.
