An instantly recognizable, mellifluous and sultry voice, today the sensational Ghanaian-American artist Amaarae has returned to share her gorgeous new single titled, LEAVE ME ALONE.

Amaarae’s brand new dancehall-inflected riddim is pure West African vibes, replete with lush and overarching guitar licks that draw abundantly from the highlife and Afrobeat tradition. An incredibly thoughtful and ardent lyricist that turns the narrative norms of rap on its head, lyrically this track is about learning how to protect one’s peace irrespective of underlying circumstances – Amaarae sings “Talking, Talking, Talk, but talk is cheap- me nuh need favor from no one but God, plus I’ve got me.”, her voice a re-assuring fix that sashays gently atop the Stalag riddim-sounding drum bop.
