Amaarae, Ghanaian artist, dishes a brand new single tagged “Leave Me Alone.”
The dancehall-inflected riddim of Leave Me Alone is pure West African vibes, replete with lush and sweeping guitar licks that pull abundantly from the tradition of highlife and Afrobeat.
Lyrically, “Leave Me Alone” is about learning how to protect one’s peace irrespective of underlying circumstances. “Talking, Talking, Talk, but talk is cheap– me nuh need a favor from no one but God, plus I’ve got me.”
Amaarae sings her voice a re-assuring fix that sashays gently atop the Stalag riddim-sounding drum bop.
