I know the world is slowly moving towards fall and winter, but REYA is out here turning up the Heat! The Melbourne born R&B artist just released her new single “Heat” in preparation of her second EP. The standalone single is a seductive, groovy piece that will have you turning heads for sure.
Heat begins with a gripping drum beat that slowly segues into REYA’s seductive and dynamic vocals. The artist skillfully uses her vocals in tandem with these signature R&B rhythms and electronic pop sounds to create a sound that is progressive. Heat has a neo-soul vibe that will get you grooving almost immediately. Heat, like a lot of REYA’s music, is dreamy, deep and atmospheric. The single lets you explore the grooviness of the neo-soul genre and encompasses a stripped back R&B vibe. She really does create an expansive, immersive world where you’re free to explore and flow to her music. REYA reminds me of artists such as Erykah Badu, Solange and Anderson .Paak.
Describing the song, REYA mentions that “Heat is an exploration into lust and intimacy,” she says. “It’s about the frustration of never being quite close enough physically and emotionally.” REYA’s music is characterized by dynamic, smooth vocals and will let give you all the right grooves in all the right places.
Heat will definitely set the right feel-good mood for your day. Go stream it now!
