Ckay came through with a new jamming tune titled “Felony”

Multi-talented singer, songwriter, and Producer CKay releases first single, since penning a global deal with Warner Music South Africa. ‘Felony’, out today is the prelude to his sophomore EP, scheduled for an early 2021 release.

Felony’ release is perfectly timed after recent news, that his previous single ‘Love Nwantiti’ has surpassed the 70 million streams mark – a good omen for his upcoming releases.

Each song on the ‘Boyfriend’ EP is inspired by various guitar genres and a variety of stringed instruments. Recorded during the lockdown, we get to see the romantic side of the rising star, as he covers strong relational topics, starting with first single ‘Felony’, a beautifully crafted single that effortlessly crosses between Afrobeats and new-age RnB.

In the lyrics, Ckay admits to the depths that he would go for his love – ”inna my song you’re the melody, I go sleep for cell if loving you is a felony” which translated from pidgin means: “In my song, you’re the melody, I would sleep in a (jail) cell if loving you is a felony”

Felony’ is an afro-fusion ballad that sounds like love.

The marriage of Eastern vocal riffs, an Afrobeat drums and classical strings gives this ear worm a worldly appeal.

Says CKay: “Felony” was inspired by a girl I was facetiming a lot during covid lockdown”.
