EDITORS’ NOTES

With her soulful interpretation of R&B, Ayanda Jiya embodies a quintessential message of love. “I wanted to be honest with myself and the person listening to this album—to help them reflect on their lives and better understand who they are,” she tells Apple Music. With her lush vocals and Zephbeats' textured production, Ayanda sounds sensual on "Falling for You" with A-Reece, funky on the Ziyon-assisted "Night Away" and devoted on “Jesus" with Naomi Parchment. "The Sun”—and her vocal interpolation of Nick Holder's “Summer Daze”—is a ray of light. On album closer "Soldier of Love”, she sings resolutely, “My life's like a song, it has so many ways to sing it. You sang it wrong, why would you even try to break me?”
