Shakka Shares Summer Sizzler “Doin Time” Alongside Imani Williams & Announces Debut Album
13 Aug 2021
Today, championed artist Shakka has called on rising songstress Imani Williams for the release of their brand new single named, “Doin Time”, that is set to feature on his forthcoming and highly anticipated debut album entitled, ‘Road Trip To Venus’.
Accommodating a sleek and intimate R&B production, the pair each deliver a slew of impassioned lyrics in order to create a feel-good and summer-felt drop. Set to feature on his album that has been 10 years in the making, this vulnerable track is yet another insight of what to expect from the project. Paired alongside a set of slick visuals, we follow both Shakka and Imani around as they deliver yet another top-notch track for us to indulge.
Speaking on the single Shakka commented, “It’s about taking ownership of being flawed in love. This is saying that you messed up, but with your whole chest. It’s about humanising the people who end up falling for someone else whilst still in a relationship and about what goes through the mind of someone who finds themselves in such an illicit situation.”
He added, “Banx & Ranx produced this record (we’ve done many songs together), and it stayed in an old folder for almost two years. The first demo had different lyrics, I then started writing what is now ‘Doin Time’ over the instrumental with the talented singer-songwriter Sinead Harnett. Despite knowing each other for over five years, this song was the first time we’d ever written together. The song was just a vibe, but with wheels and an engine by this point.
“Not too long afterwards, Imani’s team reached out and asked me to write with her for her next project. At one of our sessions I asked her to feature on the record, she instantly clicked with it and we knocked out the second verse in a few hours. She’s a beast ha!”
