HXNEY shares new single 'Je-Je', paying homage to parents native country
Irish raised artist HXNEY is a Nigerian descendant with parents from Nigeria. With her recent single 'Je-Je' she decided to implement her native language Yoruba in honour to the culture.
As an artist and songwriter, HXNEY has the ability to effortlessly tap into any genre. Her music is heavily influenced by artists such as Frank Ocean, James Fauntleroy, Lianne La Havas, Brandy and Jhené Aiko, as she thrives in Modern Alternative RnB. Her sound of music changes with every release due to her experimental nature and her incredible strengths in her melodies, harmonies, tone, vocal range and arrangements.
Je-Je was inspired by a brief relationship that has progressed too quickly. The track is a break up letter packed with soothing vocals delivered on a chilled acoustic instrumental. In her own words, HXNEY explains, that the song was written from a pure state of consciousness, letting emotions flow freely.
Starting her new era as an artists, she felt like it was only right to share this incredible track with her listeners in order to introduce them to a fresh approach and connect with her.
